    Blurry images, and I can't be sure if you have the X-rays around the right way. But can definitely see decay in an upper 1st premolar on one side, and 2nd premolar in the other side.

    Yes, after looking directly at the teeth, Xrays are taken to look deeper.

    No, X-rays are an aid. You can see some cavities with eyes that are in easy-to-see places like outer surfaces, and some with X-rays like between the teeth where your eyes can't see. I can see 2 cavities in the blurry Xrays you're showing, but there might be more on the X-rays or there might be more visible directly to the eye.
