Besides cavities, digital X-rays can detect bone loss, hidden dental structures like wisdom teeth, and problems inside a tooth or below the gum line. They are crucial for identifying cysts, tumors, and abscesses and helping diagnose dental issues.

X-rays can often show tooth infections, particularly those affecting the tooth’s root or surrounding bone. X-rays show the extent of the disease, including any bone loss or abscess formation, aiding in diagnosis and treatment planning.

The patient’s health needs determine the frequency of dental X-rays. Generally, healthy adults have them every 2-3 years, while children and those with dental issues may need them more frequently. Dentists customize the interval based on each patient’s specific situation.
