Dental x-rays are a type of images of the mouth and teeth. X-rays are an arrangement of electromagnetic radiation, just like evident light. 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.

We usually think oral health is only about brushing, flossing and getting cavities filled. Most of us do not visit a dentist unless we have pain or bleeding in the mouth. But to our surprise oral health is much more important than just having clean teeth. Our oral health or you can say our mouth offers clues about our overall health. Conditions related to our mouth can affect the health of rest of our body.
Conservative Endodontic is a branch of dentistry which deals with diagnosis and treatment of dental problems associated with soft tissues inside the tooth.
Root canal refers to the natural cavity within the center of the tooth.
Root canal treatment (RCT) is a procedure to repair or save a badly damaged or infected tooth instead of removing it. The goal of this procedure is to save the tooth from pulpal necrosis (disease of pulp). RCT is done both in kids and adults in order to save their tooth from decaying; it stabilizes the tooth and gives it a new life.
Not all tooth decay requires RCT; only if the infection (decay) is too deep your dentist may recommend you this treatment option.
