A Brief Look at Dental X-Rays

The Use of Teeth X-Rays

Dental professionals today are increasingly using digital dental radiographs (digital X-rays) to better detect, diagnose, treat, and monitor oral conditions and diseases.

Dental radiographs or digital X-rays treat, diagnose, monitor, and detect oral conditions and disease. They have been the go-to method for dentists to delve deeper into a patient’s dental health. This technology replaces the traditional photographic X-ray film, producing enhanced computer images of structures of mouth, teeth, and gums.

The Three Methods of Teeth X-Rays

Direct: Uses an electronic sensor placed in the mouth in order to record images.

Indirect: Uses an X-ray film scanner to see traditional X-rays as digital images.

Semi-indirect: A combination of a scanner and sensor to convert X-rays into a digital film.

Types  Dental Radiographs

Intraoral: This is taken inside the mouth. It’s the most common type and is used to detect cavities, as well as check the status of developing teeth and bone health.

Extraoral: Taken from outside the teeth, but they don’t provide the same feature as intraoral x-rays. On the other hand, they are used to monitor jaw growth and development, determine potential problems between teeth, jaws and other facial bones, detect impacted teeth.

Benefits of Digital Dental Radiography

Digital X-rays can be viewed on any computer screen and are enhanced for contrast and detail, and then transmitted with to specialists without sacrificing quality.

They also reveal hidden areas of decay between the teeth or below gum disease, bone infections, cysts, abscesses or fillings and other dental and oral health issues that cannot be detected by visual examination alone.

Teeth radiographs provide early detection and treatment of dental problems that in turn save money and time. The technology also removes the chemical process of hazardous wastes, which makes them friendly to the environment.

In addition, digital x-rays have colorizing features, as well as 3-D, sharpness, zoom, and flip, and among others. Digital images of the problems detected can be transferred or enhanced in a computer screen right next to the patient’s chair.

In Sum…

Digital X-rays are easier and less time-consuming in terms of teeth examination and diagnosis. It will save the trouble for both dentist and patient, and it’s easy to record the latter’s dental files. Digital radiographs do have their limits, but it’s no denying that they have played a big role in helping dentists detect different dental and oral diseases and infections.

I was looking for a dentist near me and my sister recommended Advanced Dental Concept! My whole experience was good. I was treated nicely the moment I walked in. The place was welcoming and the staff was friendly. I had my check up there and will come back for my teeth whitening treatment!

I found the right orthodontist for me here in Hammond, LA here at this dental facility. When it comes to oral health, I really want the best and I really did search the city for the best ortho for me. When I got here, I am so happy and relieved that I finally found the one for me. She was very attentive and she made me feel very comfortable. The treatment is also very effective and now I have straight,white teeth!

THE DENTISTS AND STAFF ARE AMAZING! I haven't been to the dentist in 10+ years because my last visit was so traumatizing. Recently my tooth broke and another was fractured due to me constantly grinding them in my sleep. I couldn't have wished for better service. They were so nice and kind to me. The dentist kept me informed of everything that was going on while she was doing it. The office was really clean and comfortable. I even got a call a few days later to see how I was doing and was informed that I could come in for a follow up appointment to check the healing process free of charge! I would definitely recommend them and will be going back on a regular basis. Extremely satisfied customer....Donna Evans

I was advised to see an orthodontist to correct my bite. I am glad I saw your website and read some of the reviews. By reading those customers testimonials, I decided to go visit your dentist and I am not disappointed by the service you have given me. Added factors are the place is clean and well maintained.

Very pleasant visit... No wait time at all, they saw me right when my scheduled appointment was, and I was in and out of the office for a cleaning in less than a half hour total. Very professional!
