X-rays play an important role in your oral health. These examinations provide information about the condition of your teeth and their roots, jaw placement, and overall composition of your facial bones. They can help to determine the presence or degree of gum disease, abscesses, and abnormal growths, such as cysts or tumors. X-rays can also show the exact location of impacted or unerupted teeth.
At Edina Dental Care, we offer digital x-rays, which emit a fraction of the level of radiation given off by traditional film x-rays. It only takes a second to complete the x-ray. Once completed, you are able to comfortably view your x-rays on our flat screen TV monitors. Dr. Kratz and our staff will go over each x-ray with you so you are able to understand it and ask questions if needed.
