Dental x-rays are extremely important in making sure your mouth and teeth are healthy. They allow us to see in between your teeth and catch cavities when they are small or just beginning to form. They also give us the opportunity to identify hidden issues such as infections, cysts, and even cancer.
Dental x-rays are extremely safe, and their benefits far outweigh the risks. The digital x-rays we use at Shiflett Family Dental require a minimal amount of radiation; much less than being on an airplane or even being out in the sun all day.
