Dental x-rays are a huge help in preventative oral care. With a dental x-ray, a dentist can diagnose potential issues in a patient’s mouth before they become a major problem.
At Platinum Dental Care, we use dental x-rays to save you time and money in the long run. Keep your teeth healthy by scheduling an appointment today!
How often should I get dental x-rays?
At Platinum Dental Care, we recommend getting dental x-rays every 6-18 months. Taking an x-ray is a simple process. We put a small receiver in your mouth which then transmits the image immediately to our computer. Taking regular x-rays, helps us detect potential problems early so we can provide better preventative care. If you haven’t had a dental x-ray in the last 18 months, set up an appointment now!
A full mouth series of dental X-rays is recommended for new patients. A full series is usually good for three to five years. Bite-wing X-rays (X-rays of top and bottom teeth biting together) are taken at recall (check-up) visits and are recommended once or twice a year to detect new dental problems.

What do Dental
X-rays can give a high detail image of the teeth, bones, and surrounding tissue. An x-ray allows the dentist to see:
- Between teeth
- Underneath fillings
- Teeth roots
- Developing teeth
- The bony area around the teeth
- Soft spots on the teeth that can develop into cavities
- Abnormalities such as cysts, infections, tumors, and periodontal disease
