Cavity Missed Due to 'Winged' X-ray?
Recently I had had my braces removed.Before I got braces the ortho took a winged x-ray.At the time I asked him if he could see any cavities.He told me no.3 months ago he took another winged x-ray.I was told that everything looked OK.2 weeks ago I had a filling fall out. Now my ortho is saying cavities can't be picked up on winged x-rays. this has led to me getting a root canal. I'm shocked and sad as I take oral hygiene very seriously.My DDS says cavities can be seen on winged.who's right?
