Dental x-rays (radiographs) are images of the teeth and bones in the mouth. They are an important part of your dental care, as they are the safest and most effective way to diagnose and detect problems and diseases that cannot be observed with the naked eye.
Dental X-rays, together with an oral examination, allow your dentist to gather all the necessary information and establish a correct and complete diagnosis. They also help your dentist decide on a treatment plan and monitor the treatment progress.
Digital panoramic radiography is one of the most important diagnostic aids in dentistry, which gives us the overall radiographic image of the mouth in ONE shot. Digital panoramic x-rays help your dentist assess the condition of the teeth and, among other things, determine if there are any:
• cavities between the teeth or under existing restorations
• tooth fractures
• periodontal disease
• any abnormalities in the jaw
• enclosed teeth as well as the direction of enclosed wisdom teeth
• underlying orthodontic problems
• dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint and its severity
It also helps your dentist check the oral condition of patients who are going to get dental implants, partial or complete dentures or fixed prosthesis. All this information is taken with ONE x-ray whose radiation dose does not exceed the dose we all get in a week from our electrical appliances!
At the SMALTO dental clinic, we use the best, most reliable equipment available today to ensure high clarity and a minimum dose of radiation for the patient.
