Dental Radiographic Examinations

Radiographs are used to detect and monitor dental caries. These diagnosis tests can be performed using advanced digital imaging techniques. Mostly, patients do not notice disease symptoms in the beginning as the symptoms develop gradually in cases of dental diseases. In the absence of any clinical symptoms, patients prefer to seek regular care and examination to identity possible criteria that can predict damages to the teeth. It is recommended to schedule periodic radiographs for the detection of start of any such symptoms that may lead to dental cavities. Doctors can suggest about the optimum time for this schedule based on individual patient characteristics.
