X-rays are essentially a form of electromagnetic radiation. They have a high energy level that can pass through the majority of objects, including human tissue. When x-rays travel through the air, and pass through your body, they create different shades of grey to produce an image on a special type of X-ray digital sensor.
Here at Preston Dental Holistic Group, the X-Rays that we take are only taken if necessary, to be in line with our holistic methodology. Sometimes, X-Rays allow the doctor to quickly diagnose and determine cavities and teeth problems earlier. The chocie always belongs to our patient, if they are not comfortable with X-Rays, we will try our hardest to avoid them.
