Similar to an iceberg, only a portion of your tooth is visible upon a first inspection. When we look at your teeth with our naked eye we are only scratching the surface.
Your tooth is composed of several layers, with a large portion hidden below your gum line and in your jaw bone. The surface ‘enamel’ that we can visibly examine is meant to protect the inner parts of a tooth. Below your enamel is the Dentin, then the Pulp where the nerve and blood vessels nourish your tooth. Also hidden are your Jaw bone, joints and ligaments that help support your teeth. Damage, infection or abnormalities below the surface are often invisible but cannot be ignored.
X-rays allow us to:
- Find decay and abnormalities between teeth and below the gum line
- Monitor the effects of periodontal conditions
- Monitor your jaw bone and the position of your teeth
- Monitor areas of concern before they become a problem
- Detect any growths or abnormality in your jawbone that may be a sign something more serious
- Get a complete picture of your teeth in relation to each other and your mouth (both inside and out)
Digital x-ray technology provides a faster and safer way to closely examine your teeth. Digital x-rays speed treatment and provide a more accurate diagnosis of your teeth
What are the advantages of digital X-rays?
The advancement of digital x-ray technology has meant many advantages over traditional x-rays. Some of these are outlined here:
- digital x-rays are much faster than traditional x-rays
- there is much less radiation
- the images can be enhanced for a more thorough diagnosis
How does it work?
Don’t worry its quick and easy! We place a small sensor in your mouth which is connected to a computer with a tiny wire. An x-ray beam is then sent through your teeth which records the image of your teeth and sends it to a computer. The sensor can be repositioned to photograph other sections of your teeth.
