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 welcomed me with a warm smileNozipho, South Africa, 17 07 20

I had 6 crowns and a root canal treatment done which was an experience I’ve dreaded but also needed because I didn’t like how my teeth looked but today I’m happy with the end result, I have to say, Dr Ismail(The senior Dr) has to be one of the best Dental Dr’s I’ve come across, not only because of his experience and skills but how he interacts with his patients and makes you feel calm even with the drilling sound in the background. He listens to what your expectations are for your teeth and makes adjustments accordingly whilst paying attention to finer details of your teeth structure. I had quite a long journey with my treatment but every time, he welcomed me with a warm smile. I would absolutely recommend the practice, the prices are reasonable, the practice is clean and the Dr’s, as well as the staff, are friendly. Definitely value for money.

I am very touched by her/their kindness and the dental work is excellentNicole, South Africa, 09 08 21

Amazing staff. I went in with badly damaged/ broken teeth, from ongoing stress and grinding, and on a really tight budget. I was also pretty traumatised after a difficult life challenge and the staff were were gentle, kind, supportive and helpful. Dr Parker also gave me a discount and squeezed an additional bit of work on a broken front tooth, which was causing me some embarrassment, because in her words, "She wanted me to feel better." I am very touched by her/their kindness and the dental work is excellent! Thank you to all at Kromboom Dental Center.

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.
