Oral Radiology Procedures
At Hyland Dental, we combine our years of dentistry education and training with the latest in oral radiology to provide the best dental care. Our dentists make informed decisions about your emergency dental treatment with the help of various digital x-ray views, each suited to specific dental issues:
Bitewing view: An even split between the upper and lower jaw to detect cavities and bone loss in the crown of your teeth and along the gum line.
Periapical view: Used to study the root structures of your teeth in order to locate the source of nerve pain, detect impacted teeth below the gum line, and prepare for a root canal or gum disease treatment.
Panoramic: A composite of all the views taken during a full mouth x-ray into a single large image used to detect fractures and issues in the jawbones.
Digital X-Ray Process
How We Prepare for Your Dental Care
Dental x-rays are the first step to your successful dental treatment. Our dentists use digital x-rays — the most advanced oral radiologic technology — to examine your teeth, gums, and oral structures, and determine the best course of treatment.
Digital x-rays use 70% less radiation and streamlined instruments that eliminate the need for sharp paper films. This means less discomfort, better images, and faster diagnoses, thanks to reduced development timelines. Once complete, our dentists will examine your x-rays and proceed with treatment.
