At David A. Rice DDS in Elgin IL, providing first rate dental care is much easier when we have complete information about a patients’ dental health.
Pictures are more accurate than written notes. To go a step further: pictures that show what’s going on below the visible surface of your teeth are worth even more than a thousand words. So, along with a thorough visual examination, we want complete and up-to-date X-rays.
The frequency of X-rays is largely determined by your age as well as the state of your dental health. Because children are growing and they experience more changes to their teeth, they usually need X-rays more often.
X-rays also help us find cavities, analyze gum health, and identify any major changes to your teeth and mouth.
