At the dental practice of Paul G. Culver, DDS, dental X-rays in Brookfield are an essential component to determining the overall health of your teeth and gums. While we understand that not everyone enjoys have dental X-rays taken, the process is quick and painless, and often necessary for a thorough diagnosis of any dental conditions your teeth may be facing.
Dental X-rays in Brookfield don't just reveal the condition of your teeth; they also show the gums as well, and reveal any anomalies such as cavities, or other maladies that might otherwise be hidden from your dentist's eye.
Typically, you'll want to have dental X-rays in Brookfield taken once or twice a year, but sometimes your dentist will want to take x-rays more often if you are currently undergoing some form of dental treatment. Additionally, children often need dental-rays more often, due to the fact that their teeth and jaws are still developing, and might be more susceptible to tooth decay.
If you are a new patient, you may be requested to have your dental x-rays from your previous dentist sent to our Brookfield office so that we can view your dental history.
