A dental x-ray can help us to see what would otherwise be missed with a regular examination. X-rays allow our dentists in Chicago to see underlying cavities, infections, impacted teeth and issues with restorations that would go unnoticed. These x-rays use a small amount of radiation to produce a high-quality in-depth image. They’re completely safe for the majority of our patients to have done in our office.
Because dental x-rays use such a small amount of radiation, they are safe for most of our patients to have done in our Chicago dental office. We can let you know when and if x-rays are needed and you always have the option to decline having them done. However, keep in mind that the benefits of having dental x-rays taken far outweigh any risks that may be involved. They are an important part of your overall dental health and well-being.
