- X-rays, impressions, and photographs are an important part of your treatment. Whether you are beginning treatment, finishing, or are a “work in progress,” these records help your doctor visualize parts of your anatomy that can’t be seen with the naked eye.
- The x-rays will show the bones of the jaw and face, the roots of the teeth, and many other hard and soft tissue structures of the head and neck.
- The photographs show soft tissue aspects that can’t be visualized in the x-rays typically taken at your Dentist’s office.
Together, they provide part of what your doctor needs to properly diagnose and treat you. These records, combined with your personal health history, study models, and your doctor’s expertise, help assure that you receive proper diagnosis and treatment.
