When taking dental x-rays the patient is exposed to a lower dose of radiation.
When taking dental X-rays:
- we use modern machines maintained according to Radiation Protection Regulations,
- we use adequate protective equipment.
Beside traditional dental radiography we can also take X-rays of different joints, TMJ X-rays, X-rays needed for orthodontics and especially panoramic X-rays.
Panoramic radiography is better than a single-tooth X-ray because it offers information regarding the whole denture (both the maxilla and the mandible). We take dental X-rays using a modern X-ray machine that fulfills all the technical requirements. In our surgery the exposure time while taking intraoral X-rays is very short, so we can reduce the dose of radiation as opposed to traditional radiography.
Panoramic radiography is an important diagnostic and documentary tool in dental medicine and dental radiography. Due to a panoramic X-ray we can see the localization of the teeth, the mandible (alveolus, dental root) and the temporomandibular joint. This is the most commonly used form of radiography.
Teleradiography and panoramic radiography are needed before orthodontia.
It is taken using a film dispenser and it is more hygienic and better than the traditional radiography in the case of which the patient has to fix the film with his or her fingers.
