Dental radiographs are in essential part of the oral exam. The crown is just the tip of the iceberg. Approximately 50% of dental pathology is found subgingivally. Radiographs will help diagnose pathology that is not visible from the surface, confirm suspect pathology as well as help demonstrate the pathology to the client. A full series of x-rays on each dental patient can not only increase your clinic’s revenue by locating pathology but also help you practice better medicine.
