Digital X-Rays and OPG
Dental radiology is moving away from traditional film technology to modern digital technology, which is based on electronic sensors and computers. It enables our clinicians to attain high quality X-rays efficiently (images come up almost instantly), with minimal radiation exposure to our patients.
This reduces our patients’ exposure to radiation significantly. An OPG X-ray can help to provide an initial assessment of all the patient’s teeth, any impacted wisdom teeth, periodontal bone loss, and possible placement sites for dental implants.
