 Dental x-ray will help you in determining the cause of dental pain. It will show you the extent of damage caused by the cavity. 

Dental x-ray will also determine fracture, if present. Dental x-ray is also helpful to diagnose any sort of cyst present in badly infected tooth. It also serves as a record for your treatment done.

Hi
A dental x ray is often recommended by a dentist either for diagnostic purpose or when a  patient has pain or swelling ,to find out the the source of the problem

There are 5 reasons why one needs a dental X-ray and they are:

  • Identify decay between and within teeth
  • Check if there is a loss of bone
  • Check for tooth decay under the fillings
  • Get to know if there's any infection in the roots
  • It helps doctors examine our mouth before any treatment
