Prevention is key for great dentistry, and early diagnosis is an important aspect of conservative dental treatment. When we can catch issues like tooth decay or malfunctioning dental work almost as soon as they develop, it is easier to provide treatment that does not compromise too much of your surrounding tooth enamel. Dental X-rays are a vital tool in the early detection of these and other oral health hazards, which is why your dentist in Preston Hollow, Dr. Allison Fowler, recommends that all patients have periodic X-rays taken for preventive reasons. And, with digital X-rays, the process has never been easier (or safer) for patients of all ages!
