The Prestige Dentistry Guide To Dental X-Rays

Don’t know a periapical from a bitewing? Today’s Palm Harbor dental blog takes a look at dental x-rays.

Panoramic
If you have ever stood in a huge camera apparatus and struggled to stay motionless while an automated camera made one slow pass around your head, then you have had a panoramic x-ray taken of your mouth. These pictures help dentists see everything in one image: the complete upper and lower jaw. These are often taken during a patient’s first visit to Prestige Dentistry. They are also very helpful for evaluating jaw injuries and seeing emerging teeth in children.

Bitewing
Bitewing x-rays help Dr. Dentistry see what’s going on between teeth – something that is always needed but impossible with a visual exam. They also help your dentist evaluate the jaw bone.

Periapical
These are similar to bite wings but they can get a clearer picture of the tooth roots and bone. These are commonly used to help diagnose an abscess in the root of a tooth.

Full-Mouth Series
This is a combination of periapical and bitewing x-rays that gives a comprehensive picture of all the teeth and surrounding bone structure.

If you are a patient of Prestige Dentistry and are worried about the safety of dental x-rays, we invite you to
speak with our modern staff. We can explain all the precautions that we take to reduce radiation exposure and answer any questions you may have.

If you are pregnant and need a dental x-ray at Prestige Dentistry, it is vital to let Prestige Dentistry know this before x-rays are taken. X-rays are not necessarily dangerous for pregnant women, but they are often postponed until after delivery as a precaution. If you are pregnant but have a dental issue, call our office right away. We can be reached at 727-478-0488.

We hope you have learned a little bit about dental x-rays, one of Prestige Dentistry’s indispensable tools in providing unsurpassed dental care in Palm Harbor. Check back often for more specifics about dentistry at Prestige Dentistry.
