Preventive hygiene at West Mall Dental Group, including regular dental cleanings and examinations, is vital to optimum oral health.
As part of your examination, we will take a full-mouth series of x-rays of your teeth and jaw.
Your dentist will closely examine the images, which may reveal information not visible to the eye such as abscesses, tumors and developmental abnormalities.
Dental x-rays allow us to find:
- Cavities between the teeth
- Worn-out fillings and crowns
- Tartar on the roots
- Receding bone levels and abscesses
