Dental X-Rays

At Dupage Dental Smiles, we offer various dental services in Warrenville in order to maintain positive dental health for all our patients. Dental X-rays are images of your teeth that we use to evaluate oral health problems and track progress. 

What Are Dental X-Rays?

X-rays are a dental service in Warrenville that records radiographics (or images) using radiation in order to receive a high-tech and precise analysis of your teeth. These images allow a dentist to see inside and between your teeth, as well as the tips of the tooth root and your bone beneath the gums. 

Modern dental X-rays in Warrenville, Illinois, are a very safe procedure, as the amount of radiation from a dental X-ray is less than the amount of radiation that you will receive from other natural sources throughout the course of a day. For extra precautions, we follow a variety of safety procedures during each X-ray. Lead aprons are worn to minimize exposure, and we use a fast exposure film that decreases the length of exposure time.

Why Do You Need a Dental X-Ray?

Dental X-rays can help to accurately diagnose a number of problems such as tooth decay, bone loss, abnormalities and abscesses. Dr. Sumeet Bagai recommends that you should have dental X-rays taken at least every six months. Viewing the X-rays will allow our talented dentist to determine which dental services in Warrenville are correct for you. Because X-rays can catch many dental problems much earlier than the naked eye, the X-rays can be quite cost effective, preventing damage and the need for further procedures in the future.

Types of Dental X-Rays

 

  • Bitewing: Involves biting down a special piece of paper and is used to check how your bite aligns and cavities between your teeth. 
  • Panoramic: Uses an X-ray machine that rotates around your head. This is used to check for deeper jaw problems or make plans for wisdom teeth removal.
  • Occlusal: Captures all your teeth in one shot and is done when your jaw is closed. This helps dentists determine tooth placement. 
  • Periapical: Focuses only on one or two teeth at a time, but captures the entire length of the tooth from root to crown.
