A Dentist’s Indispensable Tool: The X-ray

Berkley cosmetic dental and tooth implants

Providing quality dental care is much easier at Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry in Royal Oak MI, when we have thorough information about a patients’ oral health.

Pictures are more reliable than written notes. To go a step further: pictures that show what’s going on below the surface are worth even more than a thousand words. So, along with a thorough visual analysis, we want complete and up-to-date X-rays.

The frequency of X-rays is largely determined by your age as well as the state of your oral health. Because children are growing and they experience more changes to their teeth, they usually need X-rays more often.

X-rays also help us find cavities, evaluate gum health, and identify any major changes to your teeth and mouth.

Safety is an important issue, because low levels of radiation are used to obtain the images. Many critical precautions are taken to limit exposure, such as putting leaded aprons and collars on our patients.

It is essential that women inform their dentist if they are pregnant because special considerations should be taken.

At Gustafson Morningstar Dentistry in Royal Oak MI, X-rays are part of our comprehensive general dentistry. We also offer cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
