We utilize the most advanced x-ray technology. Our Team strives to minimize radiation exposure by utilizing the latest and safest protocols available today. All X-rays are taken digitally, ensuring higher quality images with less radiation.
Types of X-rays
- Bitewings – This type of X-ray is taken to properly detect any interproximal decay within the posterior region of the dentition, as well as any overhangs present and related to existing restorations.
- Periapical – Most accurate and detailed, periapical radiographs display the entire structure of the tooth, including the root and apex; areas which cannot be examined by visual inspection. Fractures and other inconsistencies are frequently detected using periapical x-ray.
- Occlusal –these X-rays are sometimes used to aid the dentist with proper diagnosis. These radiographs are especially beneficial for edentulous patients who are seeking partial or full-denture restorations.
- Panorex or Panellipse – Taken outside the mouth, a Panorex discloses the location of impacted and super-numerary teeth. It also serves as an aid in diagnosing any Temporo mandibular Joint (TMJ) discrepancies such as dislocation or extensive wear and tear of the jaw structures. The Panorex captures a view of both upper and lower arches allowing the dentist to gain an accurate view of any dental anomalies.
