The dentist will use X-rays to spot any problems with your gums and teeth. The frequency of these will depend on:

– Your age, your oral health, symptoms, and whether you have a history of tooth decay or gum disease.
– All new patients will undergo an X-ray so the dentist can get a clear picture of your dental health.
– Children may need X-rays more often than adults while their adult teeth emerge.
– Pregnant women should not get X-rays.

“Depending on your age, health, and insurance coverage, X-rays may be performed every one to two years.”
