Dental Radiology

Intraoral Scanner

Intraoral X-Rays are detailed dental images that show specific teeth up close.

The main purpose of intraoral X-Rays is to identify dental problems such as tooth decay, cavities, infections, and abnormalities in the roots of the teeth. These X-Rays also provide valuable information about the condition of the supporting bone and the positioning of emerging adult teeth.

By obtaining detailed images through intraoral X-Rays, we can make accurate diagnoses and create personalized treatment plans tailored to your specific dental needs. These X-Rays are especially useful for monitoring the progress of ongoing dental procedures, ensuring that your treatment is on track and any necessary adjustments can be made.

It’s a quick and painless process where you bite down on a special film or sensor. They’re safe with minimal radiation exposure, and essential for maintaining a healthy smile.

OPG Panoramic X-ray - Central Dental Care Dublin

Panoramic Scanner (OPG)

OPG Panoramic X-Rays, also known as orthopantomograms, provide a comprehensive view of your entire mouth in a single image. It’s like capturing a wide-angle photo of your oral cavity.

During an OPG X-Ray, you will stand or sit with your chin resting on a small shelf, while the machine rotates around your head, capturing the image. It is a painless procedure that usually takes only a few seconds.

These X-Rays are particularly useful for assessing the overall health of your teeth, jaws, and surrounding structures. They help us identify issues such as impacted teeth, bone abnormalities, cysts, and signs of gum disease.

By providing a broad view, OPG X-Rays enable us to develop comprehensive treatment plans and make informed decisions about your dental health. They are an important diagnostic tool that aids in early detection and effective treatment of various oral conditions.

Cone Beam CT

Cone Beam CT is the highest advanced radiologic technology used in dentistry to obtain highly detailed 3D images of your oral structures. It provides a comprehensive view, similar to a Panoramic X-Ray, but with even greater precision.

During a Cone Beam CT scan, you will sit or stand while the scanner rotates around your head, capturing multiple images from different angles. It is a painless procedure that usually takes only a few minutes to complete.

This imaging technique allows us to visualize important anatomical structures, such as nerves, sinuses, and bone density, with exceptional accuracy. It is especially valuable for implant planning, as it helps determine the best location and orientation for dental implants.

Cone Beam CT also aids in evaluating infections, cysts, and abnormalities in the oral and maxillofacial region. By providing detailed information about the quantity and quality of bone, it assists us in making precise treatment decisions.
