Digital X-Ray

Digital dental X-ray treatment is a diagnostic procedure used in dentistry to capture images of the teeth, gums, and surrounding structures using electronic sensors instead of traditional X-ray film. These sensors transmit the images directly to a computer, where they can be viewed, analyzed, and stored digitally. Digital X-rays offer advantages such as reduced radiation exposure, faster results, enhanced image quality, and environmental sustainability compared to conventional film X-rays. They play a crucial role in diagnosing dental problems such as cavities, infections, and bone loss, allowing dentists to develop comprehensive treatment plans tailored to each patient's needs.

Here's a brief overview of the types of digital dental X-rays:
  1. Intraoral X-rays:

    • Bitewing X-rays: Capture images of upper and lower teeth to detect cavities between teeth and assess bone health.
    • Periapical X-rays: Provide detailed views of individual teeth from crown to root tip, aiding in diagnosis of decay, infections, and bone loss.
    • Occlusal X-rays: Show a broad view of the entire arch of teeth, useful for assessing tooth development and eruption patterns.
  2. Extraoral X-rays:

    • Panoramic X-rays: Wide-angle view of the entire mouth, useful for assessing wisdom teeth, jaw fractures, and overall dental health.
    • Cephalometric X-rays: Side-view image of the head and neck, helpful for evaluating facial growth and jaw relationships.
    • Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT): 3D images of the oral and maxillofacial region, used for complex treatment planning, implant placement, and surgical procedures.
