X-Rays

X-rays are created by using a focused beam of X-ray photons that pass through bone and tissue. Soft tissue in your body does not absorb X-ray photos as well as the calcium atoms that make up your bone. 

Digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also, less radiation is used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography. Instead of X-ray film; digital radiography uses a digital image capture device. This gives advantages of immediate image preview and availability.

These images allow doctors and dentist to diagnose problems and disease. Without an X-ray of the whole tooth and supporting bone and tissue, there would be no way to detect infection or pathology that requires attention.
