The dentist will take digital x-rays with your permission to check in between the teeth for any hidden decay. (S)he may also take a few photographs of your teeth with a camera. Your check-up includes 2 digital x-rays. You will then be asked to look at the screen in front of you and will be talked through your x-rays and photographs.
You may be asked some questions and be asked for your opinion. This is the opportunity for your dentist to give you a thorough breakdown of what is going on in your mouth.
