Dental X-rays

Getting an inside look of a patient’s mouth is one of the best ways for Dr. Nelson to really understand what’s going on and how to best treat the issue.

That’s why Oak Hill Family Dental Center offers advanced digital X-rays in the practice! Here’s a bit more about what patients can expect when they’re in need of updated X-rays.

Monitoring the Teeth

While Dr. Nelson can get a good idea of what’s going on with a patient’s smile by looking at their teeth and gums, it’s important to utilize advanced X-rays to help evaluate the root cause of an issue and how deep the problem may be affecting the mouth.

X-rays can look for things like infections, abscesses, problems with the formation of teeth, tumors, decay, cracked fillings, gum disease, and more.

Identifying common conditions like those mentioned above can save a patient from costly future bills, which can happen when the issue progresses undiagnosed.

Types of X-rays

When a patient is in need of X-rays, the team may typically take the following different types:

  • Paroramic (PANO)
  • Full Mouth Series (FMX)
  • Bitewing (BWX)
  • Periapical (PA)
