Dental  x-ray | Are Dental x rays Necessary | Why Dental x ray is Used

 

 

 Dental radiographs, commonly referred to as X-ray films, or informally, X-rays, are pictures of the teeth, bones, and surrounding soft tissues to screen for and help identify problems with the teeth, mouth, and jaw. X-ray pictures can show cavities,cancerous or benign masses, hidden dental structures (such as wisdom;and bone loss that cannot be seen during a visual examination. Dental X-rays may also be done as follow-up after dental treatments A radiographic image is formed by a controlled burst of X-ray radiation which penetrates oral structures at different levels, depending on varying anatomical densities, before striking the film or sensor. Teeth appear lighter because less radiation penetrates them to reach the film. Dental caries, infections and other changes  in the bone density, and the periodontal ligament, appear darker  because X-rays readily penetrate these less dense structures. Dental restorations (fillings, crowns) may appear lighter or darker,  depending on the density of the material.
