Dental Radiology increases the efficiency of today’s dental practice, and here at Glow Medical and Dental Centre, we are fully equipped. Our experienced professionals are also able to take a range of speciality x-rays to look more closely at your teeth and observe any underlying problems. So, what type of X-Rays do we offer?
- A Panoramic X-Ray– is a panoramic scanning dental X-ray of the upper and lower jaw. It shows a two-dimensional view of a half-circle from ear to ear.
- A Cephalogram X-Ray– is an X-ray of the craniofacial area. A cephalometric analysis could be used as means for measuring growth in children. The lateral cephalogram is a profile x-ray of the skull and soft tissues and is used to assess the relation of the teeth in the jaws, the relation of the jaws to the skull and the relation of the soft tissues to the teeth and jaws.
A IntraOral Periapical X-Ray– The periapical view is taken of both anterior and posterior teeth. The objective of this type of view is to capture the tip of the root on the film. This is often helpful in determining the cause of pain in a specific tooth, because it allows a dentist to visualize the tooth as well as the surrounding bone in their entirety. This view is often used to determine the need for endodontic therapy as well as to visualize the successful progression of endodontic therapy once it is initiated. It can be used in case of detection hyperdontia (supernumerary teeth) & impacted teeth.
