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.

He did such a great and painless job that I wanted to cry tears of joy after he was donePhillia, South Africa, 27 08 21

This was probably my best dental experience to date. The receptionist, Yoneli, was patient and helpful throughout the process and both Dr Sayed + Dr Ismail were so considerate. I was in safe hands with Dr Ismail for the wisdom tooth extraction. He did such a great and painless job that I wanted to cry tears of joy after he was done. 10/10 would recommend. Was also lucky to stumble on them during women's month because I got a 20% discount on the consultation 😉

All her reassurances let me know I’d made the right decisionJohn, South Africa, 29 08 18

I made an appointment for dentures at Long Beach. I’m about halfway through the process now and it’ll be another four months before everything’s complete. I’m not sure if I got a fair price for the dentures. I didn’t shop around before choosing this clinic. I went with them because it was conveniently located. There was considerable pain involved because we extracted 10 teeth at once. I was given pain medication and had follow-up visits afterwards. My dentist explained everything in detail. As we went along, she told me what she was doing and also why she was doing it. All her reassurances let me know I’d made the right decision. Overall, I was treated quite well. Everyone is so friendly. The clinic is also quite nice.

I used to hate and fear to go to the dentist but not anymorePaul, South Africa, 23 05 19

I chose this clinic because they are very holistic. I had an oral hygienist appointment with Emma followed by a filling done by Dr Ivonne Meyer. Emma is so passionate about her cleaning that it makes the whole experience fun and painless. The hour appointment flew by very quickly. Then my crown prep with Dr Meyer turned into a composite filling as they are such a conservative practice that they damage as little of the remaining tooth structure as possible. They were right about gentle dentistry; because I actually fell asleep in the chair while my filling was being done. I used to hate and fear to go to the dentist but not anymore.
