Digital radiography is a variant of X-ray imaging that employs digital X-ray sensors instead of standard photographic X-ray film to create superior digital images of teeth, gums, and other oral structures and diseases.
Digital dental radiographs (digital X-rays) are used more frequently by dentists today for improved detection, diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of oral disorders and diseases.
A dentist may take an X-ray called an orthopantomogram to get a complete picture of your lower jaw. As the name implies, a panoramic X-ray captures a full view of your mouth, including your upper and lower teeth, jaw, and maxillary sinuses. The high-quality image in OPGs is a computerized composite of several scans taken at various angles.
If only a tiny concerned section needs to be examined, sectional X-rays are another alternative. By only scanning the areas crucial to your dentist’s diagnosis and treatment planning, the radiation exposure to you, the patient, is kept to a minimum.
OPGs are especially helpful since they produce sharp, detailed images that reveal even the most hidden teeth. An OPG can show you anything in your mouth, from wisdom teeth to undetected root fractures.
Nothing is hidden, and everything is exposed for your dentist to see. This facilitates a prompt and precise analysis of your oral condition.
Getting a dental X-ray may be necessary for your dentist to make a proper diagnosis and treatment plan for any issues discovered in your mouth. They are as follows:
Wisdom teeth issues
Difficulty in tooth extraction
Hidden cavities and tooth decays
Root canal issues
Up to four radiographs per doctor’s visit are considered safe for pregnant women, though most patients and dentists will choose to wait until after the pregnancy is over. In an emergency, a pregnant woman shouldn’t be worried about getting an X-ray.
With the help of safety measures like “double lead aprons,” you can reduce the amount of radiation exposure to a patient during radiography to nearly minimal levels. Women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or attempting to conceive do not need to postpone X-rays.
