X-rays

A diagnostic tool that allows us to see under fillings and in between teeth.  They are vital for treatment planning.


If you are a new patient, unless you have had dental x-rays very recently, the dentist will probably suggest having x-rays. This helps them assess the condition of your mouth and to check for any hidden problems. After that, x-rays are usually recommended every 6 to 24 months depending on the person, their history of decay, age and the current condition of their mouth


X-rays are an essential part of your health records and must be kept with your personal dental file. As dental records work differently to normal health records, your dentist must keep your dental records for at least two years from the date of your last course of treatment.  You are entitled to copies of your records and X-rays under the Access to Health Records Act 1990.  But you will have to pay for these copies.  In most cases your X-rays and records will not be needed by your new dentist. However, if they are important, your new dentist will let you know and either ask for your permission to send for them, or ask you to fetch them personally.

Aldershot Dental Centre uses digital radiographs (x-rays).

Digital x-rays can use lower radiation doses.

Our digital system uses phospor plate technology. This means the sensor part that is placed in the mouth (like a film) is less intrusive in size.


Digital x-rays can be enhanced to provide more clearer information.
