Dental X-Rays

Dental X-rays are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. 

Dentists and dental hygienists in Mexico use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan. 

Importance of Dental X-Rays

Detecting and treating dental problems at an early stage now only protects your mouth — but your finances as well. Dental X-rays can reveal:

  • Abscesses or cysts.
  • Bone loss.
  • Cancerous and non-cancerous tumors.
  • Decay between the teeth.
  • Developmental abnormalities.
  • Poor tooth and root positions.
  • Problems inside a tooth or below the gum line.

Are Dental X-Rays Safe

The amount of radiation exposure from a full mouth series of x-rays is equal to the amount a person receives in a single day from natural sources.

Dental x-rays produce a low level of radiation and are reflected as a safe practice.  Your expert dentist in Mexico will take necessary precautions to limit your exposure to radiation by using lead apron shields to protect the body and using modern, fast film that cuts down the exposure time of each x-ray.
