Dundas Dental X-rays
Older x-ray technology used film and moderate levels of radiation. This has been superseded by digital x-ray technology, which uses much lower levels of radiation. A digital x-ray has about the same radiation exposure as the standard background radiation we experience on a daily basis.
The modern digital x-ray systems also provide far superior images, useful for detecting dental issues in their earliest stages. This includes 3D images of the entire mouth. By detecting dental issue in their earliest stages, we can treat or prevent problems before they become serious. The benefits of dental x-rays in diagnosing dental conditions generally outweigh the minimal risks associated with the relatively low radiation exposure.
X-rays that produce an image of the upper and lower teeth’s crowns. This is very useful for detecting cavities between the teeth. It can also be used to evaluate the fit of dental restorations.
These show a single tooth from the crown to the root, as well as the supporting bone. If we suspect there is an issue with a tooth this type of x-ray can identify issues such as abscesses, an impacted tooth, and changes in the root structure.
These x-rays capture a wide view of the entire mouth, including all the teeth, jaws, sinuses, and temporomandibular joints. They are useful for evaluating the tooth development, assessing impacted teeth, and planning future orthodontic treatments.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) scans
These provide a three-dimensional image of the teeth and jaws. This is also very useful for planning orthodontic treatment or dental surgery.
