Why does the dentist take X-rays? Dental X-rays are images of your teeth that help your dentist evaluate your oral health. X-rays capture images of the interior of the teeth and gums and help the dentist see small problems that could have otherwise gone unnoticed. X-rays reveal complex problems, including: Decay between teeth or below existing restorations such as fillings Bone infections Periodontal disease Abscesses or cysts Developmental abnormalities Some tumors or cancer At Bunker Hill Dentistry, we rely a great deal on dental X-rays to detect dental problems at an early stage when they are easily treatable.

We also regularly have an independent survey to identify any obstacles a disabled employee or patient might encounter in our office and make the adjustments. Can teenagers come to an appointment alone? Even though teenagers are young adults, our office rules dictate that an adult should accompany anyone under the age of 18. Do you treat children? Caring for children is both rewarding and challenging, that is why we treat children above the age of 6. However, we do treat children under 6 years if they are cooperative.
