Can You Tell if a Filling is Needed Without an X-Ray?
16th August 2016
A. I can't comment on whether you need the fillings or not. However, at the very least, the dentist should have explained his rationale for advising you that the teeth need fillings. X-rays are a useful diagnostic tool. Had you had X-rays at another practice in the not too distant past? You do need to ask some questions of the dentist and ask for X-rays if they are clinically justified. Hope this helps, Jenny.
