Dental X-ray

Why is a dental X-ray so important?

During the consultation and plexus examination, the dentist will take a panoramic X-ray or CT/CBCT X-ray to make sure the teeth are healthy and there are no visible problems to the naked eye.

Dental X-ray (panoramic X-ray) is one of the most important parts of dental screening.

Why come for a dental screening?

With the help of dental screening tests that are advised to be taken every year, it is possible to detect problems early on, making it easier to maintain oral health. These may seem commonplace, but just keep in mind that it does matter whether the patient must have only a dental filling or a complex root canal treatment, which obviously means longer treatment. The dentist can also give constructive feedback on the patient’s oral hygiene, advising on which toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, and floss to use and which ones to avoid.

What is a panoramic X-ray?

A digital panoramic X-ray is a two-dimensional image of the entire cavity and teeth, allowing two jaws to be displayed in a single image.

Condition survey

At Medicover Dentistry, the CT/CBCT X-ray provides a perfectly sharp panoramic image of all the teeth and dental arches, as well as the lower and upper jaws for accurate assessment of the condition of the mouth.

X-ray examination procedure

It is important that the patient removes all metals from their environment (earrings, necklace, piercing, dentures, etc.) before the exam.

Our dental assistant will inform you of the examination and provide you with the appropriate instructions before the screening.

We use a lead vest to fully protect the patient from the radiation.

Immobility is required during the exam to produce evaluable recordings. Otherwise, a blurred image may appear, which might necessitate repeating the recording.

Transfer of X-ray images

If required, the completed recordings will be handed over on DVD, in digital format or sent to the patient by e-mail.
