Dental x-rays are a part of your regularly scheduled visits with Bergenfield dentist Dr. Howard Perlmutter. Once a year, Dr. Perlmutter will use x-rays to detect problems that cannot be seen with the naked eye. This enables our Bergenfield dentist to diagnose problems hidden by enamel or gum tissue, and to provide swift treatments for many common oral health issues. Dr. Perlmutter may also require an x-ray if you have sustained trauma or are experiencing tooth pain, gum swelling, or other indications of an oral health problem. X-rays are necessary for some cosmetic treatments and are used in the planning of dental implants as well.
