When you were a kid, taking care of your teeth may have seemed easy. Cavity prevention is the main concern for kids. Unfortunately the list of dental problems grows for adults.
X-rays allow your dentist to see areas of your teeth and mouth that would otherwise be invisible. Among other things, they show cavities between the teeth and infections of the roots. The goal is to detect and treat dental problems before they worsen. If decay and infection go undetected and untreated, they can lead to pain and discomfort as well as more costly and invasive dental treatment
