Dental X–rays show a normal number, structure, and position of the teeth and jaw bones .Dental X–rays can reveal dental cavities (tooth decay) before they are visible even to the dentist. There are two main types of dental X–rays:
Intraoral: They are the most common type of dental X–ray taken. They allow a dentist to find cavities, check the health of the tooth root and bone surrounding the tooth, check the status of developing teeth.
Extra oral: These X–rays show teeth, but their main focus is the jaw and skull. Extra oral X–rays are used to look for impacted teeth and to identify potential problems between teeth and jaws.
