Digital X-Rays

Cloverdale Dental is a fully-equipped digital X-ray clinic that can provide you with all of your dental needs. Digital X-rays are an important aspect of your dental check-ups. A single bitewing X-ray allows your dentist to see your teeth and gums from a more detailed perspective. It removes the fallibility of human eyes and reduces the room for errors. Oftentimes, dentists use dental X-rays to detect cavities, bone loss, hidden dental structures such as wisdom teeth, and such abnormalities are not clinically visible.

There are several types of dental X-rays that are used for different situations:

    • Bitewing X-rays are one of the most common types of dental X-rays. They capture upper and lower back teeth that are above the gum line in a single view.
    • Full Mouth Series are just like the name implies. This is a full work-up and capture of your teeth and the surrounding bone. This type of X-ray series is usually performed for new clients to get a proper diagnosis, provides a dental baseline, and helps with dental treatment planning.
    • Panorex is a panoramic X-ray of all your teeth and jaws. This X-ray shows impacted and other hidden teeth, in addition to visible teeth. The panoramic effect is created by a swiveling X-ray head that rotates around you, capturing a full visual of your teeth. For our young patients, we refer to this as our spaceship. Dental abnormalites, such as cysts, may be visible on dental panoramic radiographs.
    • Periapical X-rays are used to capture the root of a particular tooth or specific area of concern. This shows the tooth or teeth from root to crown.

Some clients may have concern about the exposure to radiation that an X-ray presents. At Cloverdale Dental Group, we use digital X-rays which have an extremely low rate of exposure compared to traditional X-rays. With digital X-rays, the imaging you and your dentist see is much clearer, accurate and easy to acquire. The image appears instantaneously and provides an abundance of information about what is going on in your mouth to you and your dental care provider.
