Digital Dental X-Rays
Digital dental x-rays are far safer than their film counterparts, emitting up to 80 percent less radiation. Digital images are of a higher quality and subject to Dr Etcell's adjustments in exposure and contrast for the earliest diagnosis possible.
Why do I need a dental x-ray?
We take x-rays of your mouth to assist the dentist diagnosing any issues. Our small x-rays are higher definition compared to the full-mouth x-rays that we may ask you to have taken at a radiology centre.
A large full mouth x-ray (OPG) can be helpful to assess issues such as jaw problems and the need for orthodontic work and also provides an overall look at your mouth.
After a comprehensive examination and necessary x-rays, we can provide you with a detailed treatment plan if any work is needed. Dr Etcell will take the time to fully explain his concerns and recommendations to you, and brochures are available to further enlighten you regarding any treatment discussed.
