Dental Radiography

Dental X-rays or dental radiography show detailed images of the teeth, bones, and soft tissues that can’t be seen from a superficial visual exam. A dental X-ray is a tool used for both diagnosis and prevention.

Types of Dental X-rays

  • Bitewing. This type of dental X-ray shows the upper and lower back teeth in one view.
  • Periapical. This provides images of the entire tooth and identifies dental issues below the gum line.
  • Occlusal. This type of X-ray provides images of the roof the mouth and may be used to locate foreign objects.
  • Panoramic. This gives a broad view of the entire mouth, including the teeth, upper and lower jaws, and sinus area.
  • Digital X-rays can be recorded, saved, and sent to a computer. This makes transfers of dental X-rays convenient for patients and dental offices.

Advantages of Digital X-rays

  • High-Quality Images. Digital X-rays produce high-quality images that allow for easier and faster diagnosis.
  • Less Invasive. With the help of digital X-rays, you can minimize the need for invasive diagnostic procedures.
  • Quick Results. There’s no downtime or processing time for digital X-rays. You view the results immediately.
  • Eco-Friendly. Digital X-rays eliminate the need for hard-copy images, reducing duplication and waste.
