Learn What Your Oral X-Rays Could Mean From The Dentist at Alaska Dental Arts North Pole, Fairbanks North Star, Alaska

If you’ve ever been to the dentist for a cleaning or check-up, you’ve probably had your jaw x-rayed. This technology is one of the best ways a family dentist can see what’s going on in your mouth. Many patients don’t realize how much vital information a dental x-ray can provide. Alaska Dental Arts North Pole, an affordable dentist in North Pole, AK, says your dentist can obtain a lot of information from your oral x-rays, including:

  • Oral Health Condition: Dentists at Alaska Dental Arts North Pole usually take x-rays during an appointment for other dental services, as x-rays help them assess the overall condition of a patient’s mouth. Oral x-rays can reveal the presence of gum disease, cavities, and poor teeth alignment, and by viewing them, the dentist can develop an appropriate treatment plan.
  • Location Of Impacted Teeth: Impacted teeth are not usually visible in the mouth, and an x-ray allows your family dentist to see the exact location and state of your teeth. Alaska Dental Arts North Pole will use these images to determine the need for dental services like wisdom tooth extraction.
  • Presence Of Abnormalities: Another valuable piece of information oral x-rays can provide is the presence of abnormalities in the teeth, gums, and jaw. Alaska Dental Arts North Pole relies on x-rays to see if a patient has any abnormal growths, cysts, tumors, or abscesses that may require treatment.

Most dental insurance plans cover regular x-rays, but check with the team at Alaska Dental Arts North Pole if you have any questions or concerns. To schedule an appointment with this family dentist, call (907) 490-4650 or visit the website
