DENTAL X-RAYS

Nowadays it is very common that when you visit your dentist, you are asked to take an x-ray. There are many reasons to take an x-ray, either dental (periapical) or panoramic, which will allow our dentists in Santa Paula, to be a fundamental tool to evaluate the parts of the mouth and detect hidden conditions that are not seen with the naked eye. This helps them to obtain an accurate diagnosis of some oral diseases, or to make a complete evaluation of all the structures.

Dental X-Rays - Radiografías Dentales

These devices emit electromagnetic waves that can pass through teeth, bone, and tissues and then to form an image on a “film”; this can be “analog” (conventional) or digital. There are different types of dental x-rays; we have the intraoral and extraoral, being the most common the Periapical and Panoramic.

They are radiographs that provide us with a detailed “panorama” of the patient’s condition. They give us a broader general vision since they cover both jaws and neighboring structures such as the maxillary sinuses, floor of the nostrils, among others.
