Digital X-ray is a valuable diagnostic tool

April 4, 2018

Nowadays digital radiographic imaging helps dentists to diagnose damage and disease not visible during a regular dental exam. 

For example, if we look at the intraoral picture we can see small cavity on one tooth and another one look absolutely healthy.



However, the patient experiences pain when his teeth come in contact with cold and hot food, and sometimes at night. The patient’s last dental visit was more than 5 years ago. An X-ray was taken and two large cavities were found on both teeth.


This type of X-ray (bite wing) is a routine dental screening tool helps the dentist find cavities between teeth that cannot be detected visually.
