How often do I need x-rays
X-rays are prescribed based on your needs. A healthy person with no cavities and healthy gums, no unstable changes to treated areas (ie. implants,crowns,bridges,etc.), and no unstable changes to any dental concerns for a couple of years may need x-rays every 2 years. A person who gets cavities regularly, has poor gum health and any specific areas of concern may need x-rays more often like every year.
