Why do I need X-Rays
Generally, dental x-rays are used in consultation before treatment, and can detect major oral health issues including cavities, tooth decay, gum disease, and overall bone deterioration in the mouth.
If you are a new patient, it is likely that your St. Cloud dentist will require x-rays at your first appointment in order to determine if you have any major dental concerns, the overall health of your mouth and jaw, as well as to develop a comprehensive treatment plan.
After your initial x-rays, you may not need anymore, or your dentist may recommend routine x-rays to track dental progress, including cavities, gum health, bone health, and more.
