Dental x-ray:

Dental x-rays allow the dentist to see detailed images of your mouth to help diagnose problems that may not be visible during the dental examination.

Type of dental x-rays:

  • The Pantomograph x-ray unit produce a high-quality x-ray image of the teeth, jaws and related anatomical structures.
    • Important anatomical structures that can be seen on a Pantomograph includes the teeth, the upper and lower jaws, nerves, sinuses and the TMJ joint, to name a few. This technology allows proper investigation of possible diseases/ pathologies in the facial regions and allow for accurate differential diagnoses and treatment planning.
  • The Bitewings and periapical x-rays are used to examine certain teeth in more detail.


The amount of radiation exposure from dental x-rays are very low with new digital x-ray technology.

Dentists still follow the ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable) principle when using x ray examination. We do still recommend the use of a lead apron for pregnant patients.
