X-rays, or oral radiographs, help to identify problems such as tooth decay, gum disease, impacted teeth or other problems in the oral cavity. Radiographs can aid an oral examination in diagnosing problems. Very low levels of radiation are used to capture images of your oral cavity.
There are different types of oral radiograph and we will help to recommend the best type for you. Intraoral radiographs take images of inside the mouth and check the individual teeth and surrounding tooth tissue structure. Panoramic radiographs take images of the entire oral cavity and give a bigger picture of the condition of the oral cavity.
