Dental Radiography

Dental Radiography

Dental radiography, also known as dental X-rays, is an essential diagnostic tool used in dentistry to evaluate oral health and detect various dental conditions that may not be visible during a regular dental examination. Some common types of dental radiography include:

  1. Bitewing X-rays: These X-rays show the upper and lower back teeth and are used to detect cavities between teeth, evaluate bone density, and assess the fit of dental restorations.
  2. Periapical X-rays: Periapical X-rays focus on one or two specific teeth, showing the entire tooth from the crown to the root tip. They are used to diagnose issues such as tooth decay, infection, abscesses, and bone loss around the tooth.
  3. Panoramic X-rays: Panoramic X-rays provide a broad view of the entire mouth, including the teeth, jaws, sinuses, and surrounding structures. They are useful for assessing overall dental health, planning orthodontic treatment, and evaluating the position of wisdom teeth.

Dental radiography plays a crucial role in diagnosing dental problems, monitoring oral health, and planning appropriate treatment. Dentists use X-rays judiciously, taking into consideration factors such as the patient’s age, dental history, and clinical symptoms, to minimize radiation exposure while maximizing diagnostic benefits.
