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.

Where true cutting-edge technology meets a commitment to careStoan, South Africa, 31 12 23

The best way to describe Opti-Smile is as a modern pioneer. Where true cutting-edge technology meets a commitment to care. The terms advanced diagnostic and state-of-the-art treatment are not over-the-top overstatements. They have such a commitment to tapping into technology and innovation that the actual in-the-chair experience is superior to others. All the people you encounter from the reception desk through to the dentists and assistants exude true care and friendliness. I highly recommend their tech-driven solutions for a confident smile.

It really was a pleasant & painless experienceLeeAnne, South Africa, 21 07 23

I had my wisdom tooth extracted yesterday, and believe me when I say I was nervous and anxious as I haven't had a dental procedure done in years. Dr Moosa & Dr Ismail & team made me feel so much at ease. Dr Ismail is amazing at what he does the way he explains everything and talks one through the process. Before I knew it my tooth was out and I didn't feel a thing, I couldn't believe it. It really was a pleasant & painless experience. Thank you Dr Moosa & Dr Ismail & team for what you have done for me. I'll never forget it...you guys are truly amazing.

The treatment I received throughout was superbAndrea, South Africa, 04 05 23

I had the best treatments ever! Had to have 4 wisdom teeth removed of which 2 were impacted. The two were growing horizontally and were close to the nerves which could cause paralysis should anything go wrong. Plus,I had constant cysts in my mouth! No dentist wanted to extract it due to the risk but Dr Natha was up for the challenge. I was extremely nervous but Dr Natha and his assistant put me totally at ease. The treatment I received throughout was superb! Thank you Dr Natha and assistant, I will forever be grateful. God bless!

I will never ever go anywhere else again for my dentist work and would recommendKath, South Africa, 28 02 21

I have always heard so many dentist horror stories and was always so grateful I never really needed to see a dentist. The very occasional few times I went for routine check-ups I was underwhelmed and really didn’t enjoy a single moment x so last year when I needed a whole lot of really challenging work done I was so anxious and nervous x then someone suggested I go to Dr Blazquez! Well, that was the best experience in my dental history - well actually ever in seeing any medical practitioner! I liken it to going for a facial x I have had root canal treatment, fixing of cracked and broken teeth etc and each and every experience has been amazing. I will never ever go anywhere else again for my dentist work and would recommend Dr Blazquez to everyone of any age.
