When the dental x ray machine working, X-rays pass through the mouth, the teeth and bones absorb more rays than the gums and soft tissues, so the teeth look lighter on the final X-ray image (called a radiograph). The areas of tooth decay and infections appear darker because they cannot absorb as much of the X-ray.

The frequency of dental X-rays

The frequency of dental X-rays you need depends on your specific oral health. However, if you are prone to tooth decay, your dentist may recommend dental X-rays each year to identify weaknesses and treat them before the decay progresses. Children and teens may need X-rays more often than adults because their teeth and jaws are not yet fully developed. In addition, your dental professional will perform an X-ray before surgery such as root canal or tooth extraction.

There are several other situations in which dental X-rays may be needed. If you switch to a new dental professional, they may need to take X-rays to help them become more familiar with your teeth and any problems you may have. New dental professionals may also ask your former dental professional to send any old X-rays to get a complete history of your dental care.

What does dental X-ray show?

The images taken from dental X-rays provide valuable information about your teeth and gums and help your dental professional plan the best treatment for any problem you have. Dental professionals can also use X-ray information to identify infections, abscesses and even small cysts and tumors. X-rays can even help identify developmental abnormalities, such as impacted wisdom teeth.

The appearance of the fillings and crowns on the X-ray depends on their composition. Some look very dark and some look very light. Regardless of the type of dental restoration or implant you have, your dental professional can use X-rays to help identify any areas that need attention or adjustment.

Therefore, dental X-rays play a very important role in dental care/treatment, and dental x ray unit, which can be easily purchased here at, is one of the necessary equipment for dental clinics, dental hospital as well as dental labs.
