Any dental treatment plan is incomplete without dental X-rays done on a regular basis. X-rays are radiographs, which are both diagnostic and preventative in nature; they can help determine an issue with your dental health or detect any impending conditions before they become major concerns that impact your health. The result is an image that offers insight into damage or disease that is otherwise invisible to the naked eye. Bronstein Family Dental provides accurate dental X-rays for Winnipeg patients.
There are two types of X-rays – extraoral and intraoral; the former is taken outside the mouth while the latter is done within it. While both are in use, intraoral X-rays are more effective as they produce a high level of detail of bone, teeth and other oral tissues. We use the latest digital X-ray technology to assess your condition.

Necessary Precautions and Importance
There is no preparation required before you go for a dental X-ray. You should, however, brush your teeth before your appointment to allow a hygienic environemnt while conducting the tests. While you may feel like getting an X-ray done is not critical to the health of your teeth, it is anything but! Despite the best checkups done by the most reliable dentists, there may be conditions which get left out. You must get it performed around once every two years, based on your age and medical history.
Types of Problems X-rays Can Detect
Dental X-ray service can help determine the condition of teeth, roots, jaw placement and facial bones. It also helps in finding and treating dental problems early in their development. Finding these problems early can save you money, avoid discomfort and possibly save your life.
X-rays help dentists diagnose problems including:
Decay present in the small areas of teeth
If any decay is beneath existing fillings
The condition and position of the teeth to help prepare for tooth implants, braces, or other dental procedures.
