What is Dental X-Ray? Why it is required?

They are of complex energy, though, and can penetrate the body to form an image on film. Dental x-rays benefit diagnoses disease and injury of the teeth and gums.
Dental x-rays can divulge dental cavities (tooth decay) before they are visible even to the dentist. Many dentists will take multiple dental x-rays to catch the early development of cavities.
