Why is digital X-ray important?

In order to prepare a plan for creating your new smile, we first need to analyze the current state of your teeth in detail. Today's modern dentistry is unimaginable without panoramic X-ray images of teeth and jaws. Taking X-rays of teeth should be the first step in diagnosing and treating various pathological changes in teeth, jawbones, and facial cavities. Only with such an approach can a complete, excellent, and lasting result be achieved in the patient's treatment. A larger part of the changes are localized inside the teeth or in the bones and cannot be noticed without a panoramic X-ray image. Previous practice has shown that in a larger number of patients, incidental findings are detected, which had not previously caused difficulties for the patient and which the doctor had not been able to detect during the examination.

Panoramic X-ray is necessary for:

The initial examination of the patient, prosthetic, orthodontic, surgical planning, and pediatric dentistry.

The following findings can be diagnosed with panoramic X-ray:

Diagnosis of caries; diagnosis of granulomas, cysts, diffuse inflammation, semi-impacted, impacted teeth, periodontopathy, deformities of the jaws (asymmetries, mandibular and maxillary prognathism, malocclusions); trauma and fractures of the jaws and teeth, tumors of the jaws.

Advantages of digital radiography:

  • The radiation dose is significantly reduced, while precision and diagnostic value are significantly increased.
  • The digital image is immediately available for analysis.
  • The process of taking X-rays takes 10-15 seconds.
  • In order to achieve better visibility, the images can be processed and enlarged to the maximum for analysis of the finest details.
  • Computer electronic archive, which is always available
