A clinical exam alone will not be enough to get a complete diagnosis of the potential problems inside your mouth. Most problems with your teeth and jawbone cannot be seen without the help of x-rays. To achieve a more accurate look at what’s happening in your mouth, teeth, and gums, you may need a digital x-ray. Your dentist will be able to pinpoint things like the amount of bone loss, the severity of gum disease, how your wisdom teeth are growing in, and other issues. Digital x-rays give your dentist a comparison benchmark for how much the health of your mouth has progressed between each visit.
We are open Monday through Friday, and on Saturdays by appointment only. We would be glad to provide our opinion and expertise on any questions or concerns.
