Lifelong Dental Health Below the Surface
Evaluating your dental health requires a complete look at your teeth, gums and mouth. While our dentists and staff are experts at oral health, not all problems are visible during your regular checkup. Thanks to modern technology, dental X-rays (radiographs) can help us detect oral problems that are hard to see or below the surface.
Regular dental X-rays are part of a standard preventive treatment plan and are typically covered by your insurance plan. Most of our patients receive bitewing X-rays once per year, and new patients often receive a panoramic X-ray to give us a full glimpse of your entire dental health. Your dentist will recommend the right X-ray schedule for you depending on your dental history.
X-rays help our dentists discover oral health issues that aren't visible during an exam. Problems an X-ray might uncover include:
Decay between teeth
Cavities between teeth
Complications with new teeth that haven't erupted (such as wisdom teeth)
Cysts and abscesses
All Park Dental locations throughout the Twin Cities, greater Minnesota and western Wisconsin are equipped with state-of-the-art digital X-ray technology to help ensure lifelong dental health that goes below the surface.
