Why do I need X-rays?

A picture is worth a thousand words. Here are two X-rays of different patients taken during a routine screening. Both patients had no pain and clinically the teeth look perfectly normal. Dark irregular areas represent pathology in the way of bone loss or tooth resorption. Please trust us in taking the best care of you by doing the recommended full series of X-rays every 3-5 years. They can save a tooth, your jaw, and maybe your life!
