Digital X-rays allow the dentist to diagnose pathology in the mouth using the least amount of radiation possible and with no need to process films with chemicals. All of the radiographs produced in our office, including panoramic x-rays, are generated using digital technology. Our extra-oral bitewing system enables us to view a wider area of the mouth than with traditional bitewing x-rays and is more comfortable for patients who have difficulty with x-ray sensors in the mouth. Below we show examples of the dental anatomy we see in our extra-oral radiographs compared to traditional bitewing views. We recently added a portable, hand-held x-ray system that improves accuracy and easy-of-use to obtain diagnostic quality x-rays.
