Dental radiology

Our clinic has very modern dental radiology equipment, specifically designed for dental x-rays.

Dental radiographs allow us to see the area beneath the gum line where up to 75% of the tooth structure lies. By taking full mouth radiographs, we can find abnormalities such as:

  • Periodontal disease
  • Tooth resorptions
  • Impacted teeth
  • Retained root fragments
  • Dead teeth
  • Broken tooth roots and
  • Abscessed teeth.

Most of these problems cannot be seen without an x-ray.

Therefore, by taking dental radiographs we can reduce further dentals required by treating those issues that would be missed (and arise later) if dental radiographs were not taken.
