During any dental procedure our gold standard practice is to perform dental x-rays.
Just like us humans, x-rays of the mouth, tell us a great deal regarding the overall health of the teeth and gums, they allow us to focus on specific areas. Equally they also enable us to rule out areas which we’ve previously identified as potential problems.
Dental x-rays often provide substantial evidence to allow these teeth to be left alone. Like normal x-rays, dental radiographs are performed under sedation and are painless for the patient.
