These quick and easy X-rays provide clearer quality images which form an essential part of any dental care treatment plan. They are diagnostic, but can also be utilised for prevention by helping the dentist diagnose potential oral care issues before they become a major problem. At Commercial Road Dental we provide 2 types of X-rays:
1- Intraoral X-rays (bitewings and periapical X-rays). These X-rays are taken inside the mouth to diagnose decay, gum disease, and tooth infection.
2- Extraoral X-rays (OPG or panoramic X-rays, cone beam, 3 dimensional X-rays). These can also diagnose decay, tooth infections, and gum disease, but provide a bigger picture of both upper and lower jaws which gives additional information to the dentist when considering various treatments, such as implant treatment and tooth extractions.
