Are x-rays really necessary?

There are many diseases and dental problems which cannot be seen by the naked eye. These may include decay under old fillings, teeth trapped below the gums, cavities between the teeth, bone loss as a result of gum disease, and changes in bone structure which can be affected by many systemic diseases.

X-rays can detect these problems and are, therefore, a useful and important diagnostic tool!
