What is a Dental X-Ray?

Dental X-rays are procedures where photographs of the teeth and mouth are taken to diagnose dental and oral disease or adverse dental conditions. An extensive examination of the patient’s mouth and teeth is done on the first visit to a dentist. This usually involves the use of X-rays. X-rays help dentists detect dental and oral problems that are not easily visible to the naked eye.

How is a Dental X-Ray performed?

Dental X-rays are either intra-oral or extra-oral. The film is placed outside the mouth and the image is taken for an extra-oral X-ray. The film is placed inside the mouth and the image is taken for an intra-oral X-ray. Depending on the machine used, patients may feel pressure on their cheek for a few moments when the dentist focuses the camera.

What does a Dental X-Ray show?

X-rays allow the dentist to see, bone loss, gum disease, dental infections, positioning of wisdom teeth, oral cysts or abscesses, tumours, jaw fractures and foreign objects in the mouth or teeth.    

Are Dental X-Rays safe?

Dental X-rays are the safest among X-rays and patients are exposed to very little radiation. Dentists use digital X-rays that are less harmful than traditional X-rays. Patients should tell the dentist about any existing health condition or if they are pregnant.  The dentist will not use X-rays to risk the health of patients unless absolutely necessary.

What are the alternatives to taking a Dental X-Ray?

Alternatives to the dental X-ray include Cari vu, a diagnostic device using transillumination technology and the Diagnodent laser assisted diagnostic device.

This was all exceptionally good valueAdele, UK, 16 02 17

My husband had a broken tooth and as we still have 4 weeks left in Penang we decided it was better not to wait. Whilst in the surgery the dentist Dr Brenda Sim also mentioned another cracked tooth. If this was in the UK I'd have thought it was just a way to get more money, but as it happens my husband was aware of it. She offered to fix that and also asked if he wanted his teeth cleaned. As he was due a visit to the hygienist in any case he just said yes. This was all exceptionally good value and the price substantially below what we expected and what we would have paid back home We checked out what dentists were available locally (turns out there's lots) but we decided to look at 2 in Pulau Tikus as it's close to where we're staying. We originally went to Penang Dental but then decided on Wong & Sim. We'd read reviews and to be fair both had very good reviews. But Wong and Sim not only were able to see my husband that day but we were very impressed with the surgery itself - very new and it looked like it had all the very latest equipment. Dr Sim was a very friendly, approachable but professional and clearly highly skilled dentist. She was assisted ably by 2 other members of staff who were equally friendly. Both me and my husband were very glad with our choice, and especially so when contacted afterwards to make sure everything was ok. If I was living here Dr Sim would be my dentist and I'd be going there for the cosmetic treatment I want too. Wish she was my local dentist.
