Dental radiographs (x-rays) are the only way to see in between your teeth to check for tooth decay (cavities) as well as to evaluate the jaw bone around the teeth, which is important in diagnosing periodontal disease (bone loss around teeth). Without dental x-rays, we cannot properly make these diagnoses. If x-rays are taken regularly, issues can be caught and treated before they become bigger (and generally more painful) problems.
