Why do dentists require X-rays of my teeth/ jaws?

Dentists can only see your teeth superficially when only use their natural vision. Whilst they examine your teeth thoroughly, they do not have x-ray vision and are therefore unable to see between your teeth, where your teeth touch and underneath existing fillings without the benefit of x-rays. X-rays are a very important diagnostic tool in the early discovery of cavities.
