Digital Bitewing X-Rays

Digital Bitewing Xrays

Bitewing x-rays are the most common x-rays taken in dentistry. They show the upper and lower teeth. We especially use the x-rays to examine the in-between surfaces of your teeth.

Bitewing x-rays are a necessary part of regular dental checkups. They give us vital information that we cannot get from any other source.

Benefits of bitewing x-rays

These x-rays give us valuable information about a variety of oral conditions, including –

  • cavities between the teeth.
  • tartar on the tooth roots.
  • worn-out or broken fillings or crowns.
  • receding bone levels resulting from periodontal disease.

Procedure for taking digital bitewing x-rays

First we cover you with a lead apron to protect your body while we take x-rays of your mouth. Then we place a small sensor inside your mouth so that it lines up properly to get a picture of your upper and lower teeth at the same time.

Safety of digital bitewing x-rays 

Digital x-ray sensors are quite sensitive, so the amount of radiation exposure is very low. In fact, compared to conventional x-rays, digital x-ray systems can reduce the amount of radiation up to 80 percent.

Digital Full series xrays

A full series of x-rays is the first step in a thorough dental examination because it gives us a full view of your mouth.

A full series is important because the x-rays give us vital information that we cannot get from any other source.

Benefits of a full series of x-rays

We use a full series of x-rays to find a variety of oral conditions throughout your mouth, including—

  • cavities between the teeth.
  • tartar on the tooth roots.
  • worn-out or broken fillings or crowns.
  • receding bone levels resulting from periodontal disease.
  • abscesses.

Procedure for taking a full series of digital x-rays

First, we cover you with a lead apron to protect your body while we take x-rays of your mouth. Then we place the x-ray sensor inside your mouth so that it lines up properly to get x-ray images of your teeth.

We repeat this process by moving the sensor to 18 or 19 specific locations to thoroughly evaluate your entire mouth.

Safety of a full series of digital x-rays

Digital x-ray sensors are quite sensitive, so the amount of radiation exposure is very low. In fact, compared to conventional x-rays, digital x-ray systems can reduce the amount of radiation up to 80 percent.
