Dental X-Ray

Dental X-Rays are pictures of the teeth, bones, and surrounding soft tissues to screen for and help identify problems with the teeth, mouth, and jaw. X-Ray pictures can show cavities, hidden dental structures (such as wisdom teeth), and bone loss that cannot be seen during a visual examination. Dental X-Rays may also be done as follow-up after dental treatments. Dr. Akshay's Dental Care & Implant Centre is equipped with a state of the art Zero Radiation Digital X-Ray equipment which allows minimum radiation exposure to the patient and the operator.

Why It Is Done X-Ray machine

Dental X-rays are usually done to:

  • Detect problems in the mouth such as tooth decay, damage to the bones supporting the teeth, and dental injuries (such as broken tooth roots). Dental X-Rays are often done to detect these problems early, before any symptoms are experienced.
  • Detect teeth that are abnormally placed or don't break through the gums properly. Teeth that are too crowded to break through the gums are called impacted.
  • Detect cysts, solid growths (tumors), or abscesses caused by certain dental problems.
  • Evaluate the presence and location of permanent teeth growing in the jaw in children who still have their primary (or baby) teeth.
  • Plan treatment for large or extensive cavities, root canal surgery, placement of dental implants, and difficult tooth removals.
  • Plan treatment of teeth that are not properly aligned (orthodontic treatment) Without X-Rays, dentists would miss the early stages of decay between teeth.
