A proper diagnosis is the key to addressing any dental issues. At Incredible Smiles Woodville, we utilise diagnostic imaging that has minimal radiation and only recommend X-rays if we feel they are necessary. Generally, our patients have X-rays taken every 18-24 months.

Why Take Dental X-rays?

  • Bone loss from gum disease
  • Bone or root canal changes caused by infection
  • Decay not visible to the eye
  • The location and eruption of a child’s permanent teeth
  • The positioning of wisdom teeth
  • Tumour presence suspected
  • Bone density assessment for having a dental implant placed
