Dental X-ray (OPG)
X rays are at the centre of great technology when it comes to our health. Dental x rays in particular allow your dentist to diagnose and manage a wide range of tooth related health issues. Without dental x rays, your dentist would be unable to see hidden decay between teeth, impacted teeth deep in your jaw or any bone loss. Dental x rays also provide a great health record for your teeth that your dentist can use to refer back to.
Cranebrook Dental uses the most up to date technology to x ray our patients. Should you need a quality dental x ray, contact us today to make an appointment.
What Is A Dental OPG
A dental x ray, also known as an OPG (Orthopantomagram) is a panoramic or ‘wide-view’ x ray of your jaw and teeth from ear to ear. OPG’s and other dental x ray technology uses a minimal and safe amount of radiation to capture the xray.
An OPG allows your dentist to see all your teeth in the upper and lower jaw on a single film. The number, position and growth of your teeth (including those not yet erupted) are all visible on an OPG.
Things your dentist can see on a Dental x ray include:
