why you need to have a Digital X-ray over normal Dental X-ray

At Sydney Road Dental Care, we have a brand new digital dental x-ray OPG machine which takes a panoramic x-ray of your teeth and jaws to show the presence and position of your teeth.

We recommend taking dental x-rays every 4-5 years for all patients as standard practice.

Did you know OPG stands for Orthopantomogram

Some of the benefits of a digital dental x-ray:

(compared to normal dental x-rays)

  • Less radiation than standard x-rays
  • done on site
  • immediate results
  • full mouth in one exposure
  • better diagnostic results
  • less chemical waste
  • digitally stored with your patient record for easy retrieval
  • diagnostic screening tool for wisdom teeth, cysts, tumors, sinus, jaw development
  • diagnostic tool in kids to ensure adult teeth are present

Additional information on the technology can be found on the manufacturer's website.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
