What can dental X-rays do?

ANSWER

Dental X-rays help dentists see any problems with your teeth and the surrounding tissue that can't be seen with a simple oral exam. In addition, X-rays help the dentist find and treat any issues early on, which can save you money, unnecessary discomfort, and maybe even your life.
