Dental X-rays are an essential diagnostic tool that helps dentists identify and treat various dental conditions. In addition, they provide invaluable information about your oral health, enabling early detection and intervention to prevent complications and maintain a healthy smile.
Bitewing X-rays are used to detect cavities and monitor the health of your teeth and gums, particularly in the areas between teeth.
Occlusal X-rays focus on the roof or floor of your mouth, capturing images of your upper and lower jaw to help diagnose tooth development or alignment issues.
Periapical X-rays focus on individual teeth, capturing images of the entire tooth, from the crown to the root, to identify the potential problems in the root structure and surrounding bone.
Panoramic X-rays capture a comprehensive image of your entire mouth, including the teeth, jaw, and sinus areas, allowing your dentist to evaluate your oral health and plan treatments accordingly.
Intraoral X-rays are taken inside the mouth and provide detailed images of individual teeth, helping dentists diagnose cavities, gum disease, and other dental issues.
Extraoral X-rays are taken outside the mouth and focus on the jaw, skull, and other facial structures, assisting in diagnosing impacted teeth, TMJ disorders, and other issues affecting the jaw and supporting systems.
Digital X-rays use advanced technology to produce high-quality images with minimal radiation exposure, providing a safer and more efficient diagnostic process.
Here are some other dental diagnostic services we provide:
CBCT provides detailed three-dimensional images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerves, and bone, allowing for precise treatment planning and diagnosis of complex dental issues.
Intraoral cameras enable x-ray dentists to capture high-resolution images of your teeth and gums, better understanding your oral health and facilitating patient education.
Oral cancer screening is a crucial component of your dental checkup, helping to detect any signs of oral cancer at an early stage when treatment is most effective.
Our comprehensive dental examinations thoroughly evaluate your teeth, gums, and oral health to identify potential issues and recommend appropriate treatment plans.
Panoramic X-rays are an essential diagnostic tool that offers a comprehensive view of your mouth, including the teeth, jaw, and sinus areas.
They are invaluable for diagnosing issues that may not be visible during a routine dental examination, such as impacted teeth, jaw abnormalities, sinus problems, or tumors.
Panoramic X-rays also help dentists plan treatments, such as orthodontics or dental implants, by thoroughly understanding your oral structures.
