There is a lot going on in your mouth, even when it is squeaky clean. There are things you can see, and things you cannot see. Dental X-rays, or radiographs as they are sometimes called, give your dentist the inside information on what is happening below the surface of your teeth and gums.
A perfect smile is accentuated by a perfect set of teeth – pearly white, well-shaped, and properly spaced. It’s what we all want.
