Our dentists use digital and panoramic x-rays to capture images of the interior of your teeth and gums to assess your dental health.
What is a Dental X-Ray?
Dental x-rays (radiographs) are images of your teeth that your dentist uses to evaluate your oral health. They are used with low levels of radiation and can help your dentist identify dental problems.
Digital x-ray imaging uses digital x-ray sensors instead of the traditional photographic x-ray film.
Digital dental x-rays produce extremely detailed computer images of the teeth and gums, as well as other oral structures and conditions.
Panoramic dental x-rays are useful because they create a single image of the entire mouth.
The resulting image is a flat representation of the jaw's curved structure including the teeth, upper and lower jaws, temporomandibular (TMJ) joints, and the nasal and sinus areas.
