X-RAY SAFETY - DENTAL CARE

Dental x-rays (radiographs) are valuable diagnostic tools for the dentist The primary reason for taking x-rays is to provide a method of detecting decay that is not visible to the naked eye. When decay is identified early, it is often easier to treat and less uncomfortable for the patient. A dentist will also use x-rays to spot changes in the supporting structures of the jaw, including the hard and soft tissues.

When a patient first visits an Altima Dental Centre, the dentist may choose to take a full mouth series of x-rays. The Healing Arts Radiation Protection Commission must approve all dental office personnel, who take x-rays. They are useful diagnostic tools that provide the dentist with a method of visualising the decay, or other types of dental pathology, that can not be seen.

Altima & BrightSmile Dental have more than 30 locations to serve you better.
