X-Rays

Digital X-Ray

Digital x-rays are quickly becoming adopted by a large percentage of the dental industry. A digital x-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow the dentist to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy. As a benefit to the patient, the digital x-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version of the x-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind.

Types of X-Rays

Periapical Radiograph

This x-ray views the entire tooth, root and bony structures in detail.

Bitewing Radiograph

Horizontal bitewings view the tooth, bony structures that support the tooth and in between teeth.

Full Mouth Series

A complete full mouth series consists of a number of periapical and bitewing radiographs that capture different landmarks and structures.

Occlusal Radiographs

These x-rays view large areas of the upper jaw, lower jaw and floor of the mouth of children. These are generally taken around age five.

Panoramic Radiograph

This x-ray will take a view of the upper and lower jaws with less detail. However, it serves as a supplement to a full mouth series. This film is repeated every three to five years.

Cone Beam

When placing implants, accuracy is key. Our cone beam provides us with a 3D representation of your jaw. Now, we are able to visualize all teeth and surrounding structures and place the implant in an ideal position.
