We use both digital x-rays and panoramic x-rays to get the most complete view of your mouth, jaw, and neck.

Digital x-rays are great for so many reasons. Not only do they limit your exposure to radiation – using 75% less radiation than conventional x-rays – they are clearer, easier to read and share with you, and they can be kept in your electronic files for easy comparison visit to visit!

Our panoramic x-ray machine stays outside of your mouth and moves around your head in a half-circle, taking an image of your entire oral cavity. And while it’s true that panoramic x-rays won’t give us quite as clear a diagnostic image as the digital x-ray,but it does provide a terrific overview of your entire mouth letting us check the position of your wisdom teeth, look for sinus issues, bone density, and even abscesses.
