Digital X-Rays

Technology has improved the way dentists evaluate your dental health. There are two types of digital x-rays  used during an examination:


  • Bite-wing x-rays show details of the upper and lower teeth in a select area of the mouth. Bite-wing X-rays are used to detect decay between teeth and any changes in bone density caused by gum disease.


  • Panoramic x-rays show the entire mouth area–showing both the upper and lower teeth. This type of x-ray is taken to detect the positioning of your permanent teeth as well as emerging teeth.
