Dental Radiology

Dental Radiology

Sometimes your dentist cannot get a full picture of your dental issues simply by inspecting your mouth. Dental radiology is an essential part of the dental process, where radiographs (X-rays) of your teeth and mouth help your dentist to build up a comprehensive picture of your teeth and gums. The dental X-rays allow them to ensure they develop the best gum disease treatment option possible, that is tailored to your specific dental needs.
At Drs. Nicolas & Asp dental clinic, we frequently use dental X-rays as an important part of your thorough dental examination. Our team of professional dental radiographers are on hand to make sure you receive some of the most high-quality dental X-rays in Dubai. We strive to give our patients excellent all-round care, and dental X-rays are a key part of that care.

Dental radiology uses:

Dental radiology is crucial in revealing the condition of your teeth and gums. Dental X-rays can reveal non-visible decay, tartar build-up, abscesses, cysts or tumors. They can help your dentist assess the condition of your existing dental work, such as your fillings or crowns, locate the precise position of impacted or extra teeth, and even help find foreign bodies in your gums. Your dentist can also use dental X-rays to assess the state of your jaw bones, whether they are checking for bone loss following gum disease, or seeing if there is a suitable amount of bone to enable dental implants to be fitted.
Dental X-rays have so many uses that can help enhance your dental health and care. Our team of dental radiographers will ensure you are given the right kind of dental X-ray for you.

Dental X-ray types:

There are various different dental X-rays that can be used, depending on what your dentist needs to look at. Here are some types of the x-rays we have at our centers:

  • Periapical X-rays: These precise dental X-rays allow your dentist to get a close-up of a single tooth from the tip of the crown right down to the root. With such a wide range of dental radiology techniques at their fingertips, our team of dental radiographers can provide your dentist with all of the vital information they need to create the best possible treatment plan for you. If you would like to know more, just get in touch today.
  • Bitewing X-rays: Dental X-rays can be taken to check for decay on the sides of your teeth, which is not usually visible to your dentist as the teeth have tight contact with each other.
  • Panoramic X-rays: Our dental center has the technology to capture some of the most detailed panoramic X-rays in Dubai. Panoramic X-rays are taken by a machine which slowly rotates around your entire head, to give your dentist a fantastic view of your entire mouth and jaw, rather than one or two specific teeth.
  • Palatal (or occlusal) X-rays: This kind of dental radiology technique is used to take X-rays of your entire mouth, often to see how well your teeth line up and if there are any issues with your palate (the roof of your mouth) or your mouth floor.
