Why are x-rays needed?

Prevention dentistry is a multi-pronged approach to optimal oral health over the long-term, and dental x-rays in Huntsville, AL play an essential role.

Preventive dentistry includes a great oral health routine at home—generally brushing and flossing twice daily and reducing sugar and acidic intake through foods and drinks. Additionally, you should see your dentist twice per year for exams, cleanings, and x-rays as needed.  These recommendations also reflect guidelines put forward by the American Dental Association.

At Twickenham Family Dental, we take x-rays to allow your Huntsville, AL dentist to see between teeth, the area where most cavities begin. And our x-rays are designed to spot small problems before they become costly or painful issues down the line—including deep cavities, root infections, oral infections, and dental emergencies.

In our Huntsville, AL dental office, we implement digital sensors that emit minimal radiation to ensure our patient's safety, and we only take x-rays as needed.

A preventive dentistry schedule in Huntsville that includes digital x-rays is your best course of action for a lifetime of healthy teeth.

We encourage you to schedule your dental exam today.

We serve patients in Huntsville, Madison, Meridianville, Moores Mill, New Market, New Hope, Lacey's Spring, Arab, Hazel Green, Gurly, and all surrounding locations.
