The following dental X-rays are taken in the Clinic:
Periapical radiographs belong to the most frequently taken X-rays in humans and their role in dental practice is crucial. The radiographs are obtained using digital radiography technique which offers high quality and lower exposure dose. No prescription is required for dental intraoral X-rays, but it is helpful in determination of the main aim of the study and diagnosis.
Panoramic radiographs (orthopantomographs, OPGs) are survey radiographs that allow one-time evaluation of the whole dentition, which is useful especially during treatment planning e.g. orthodontic or prosthetic. They also demonstrate maxillary and mandibular bones.
Lateral cephalometric radiographs are the main means of diagnostic before and during orthodontic treatment as well as in follow-up. PA and SMV cephalometric radiographs are supplemental in precise orthodontic diagnostics. Automatic cephalometric tracing can be performed as well (additionally charged).
Radiographs of temporomandibular joints (TMJs) are taken in a panoramic X-ray machine in occlusion as well as in full mouth opening. This way one radiograph demonstrates in total 4 images of 2 joints. It is also possible to take the radiographs in therapeutic position with a special occlusal index prepared by a referring dentist.
