Digital radiography

Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and health of bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs. 

At Dental Euroclinic we are proud to offer our patients the benefits of the latest technology available in the world of digital radiography. Digital radiography allows for more effective treatment while significantly limiting your radiation exposure, exposure time is about 1/10 of that used with traditional radiographs. The results can be viewed immediately and thus reducing the length of some appointments. The image quality is outstanding, the diagnostic reliability is increased thanks to the optimum detail recognition and sophisticated software support 

With computers in each treatment room, we have immediate access to your stored x-rays, images, and dental records. We are able to manipulate the digital images which often times helps us to retrieve valuable diagnostic information and detect cavities sooner. It is also a great way for our patients to be more involved with their treatment decisions, as we can have discussions about treatment needs with both of us seeing the same image on the computer screen. The patients x-rays are permanently stored and can be quickly transfer to appropriate specialists or insurance companies.

At Dental Euroclinic, Doctors strictly follow the ALARA principle (As-Low-Radiation-As-Possible) and choose carefully when  and which radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines regarding x-ray frequencies: 

  • Full Mouth X-Rays/ Complete Series including Bitewings (22 individual films that encompass your full mouth. We recommend completing the Full Series x-rays at your initial visit, then every 3-4 years thereafter)
  • Bitewings (4 films typically taken once a year at your recall. These x-rays show upper and lower molars)
  • Intraoral Periapical (one individual x-ray of a problem area)
  • Panorex (a complete mouth x-ray that is taken on an as needed basis to either visualize the nerve canal and the sinuses for implant placement or to look for susspected lesions. This x-ray does not provide adequate detail to diagnose the individual teeth for decay)
