Frequently Asked Dental Technology Questions
What is the difference between dental intraoral X-rays and extraoral images?
Intraoral X-rays are the most common type of dental X-ray, and is where the X-ray film is placed inside of your mouth.
Intraoral X-rays allow us to see details of your upper and lower teeth. It helps detect decay between your teeth as well as changes in the thickness of bone that may be caused by gum disease.
Extraoral images are more commonly used to detect dental problems in your skull and jaw bone.
Extraoral images help us see the entire area of the mouth, including all teeth in both the upper and lower jaws. These images are very helpful with regards to teeth realignment as well as detecting tumors.
How often should you get dental X-rays?
The frequency of dental X-rays can vary depending on your medical and dental history, as well as your current oral health condition. Our team is careful to recommend X-rays only as required. For some patients, this can be as often as every 6 months; and for others there may be a greater gap depending on your oral examination results.
What exactly is a cavity?
Everyone knows that cavities are bad, but do you know exactly what a cavity is?
A cavity is actually a small hole in the tooth that develops as a result of tooth decay. When your tooth experiences decay, that decay is actually eating away at the tooth and results in a void space that disrupts the structure of the tooth. It is extremely important to get cavities repaired. If they are left, they will continue to grow larger over time and cause increased pain and a greater decay of your tooth.
