X-rays are an essential part of any preventative or diagnostic oral exam. This painless practice allows the doctor to see problem areas in the mouth that may not be visible to the naked eye.

Digital x-rays bypass the development process, similar to how digital cameras work, and your x-ray practitioner can see the image instantly so you don’t have to wait as you did with traditional film x-rays. With digital x-rays, your orthodontist can also store images and use them to compare to future images.
