Dentists can detect hidden problems and complete an accurate treatment plan using an x-ray.
At the dental checkup appointment with the dentist, an OPG referral will be given, which is an x-ray of the whole mouth which enables the dentist to check the following:
- Fillings in the teeth
- Bone levels surrounding the teeth
- The temporomandibular joint
- Abnormal lesions such as cysts, abscesses, tumours
Our Dentists in Ballarat also recommends that you take bitewings every two years to check for holes in between the teeth and under the fillings.
