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.

Rating from 4 Reviews I was a person, was always treated with kindness, respect, and friendshipAlan, UK, 04 05 18

On my first visit to the SmileLux office at Milton Keynes, I was greeted by smiling faces, offered a drink, and guided to the comfortable waiting area. I knew I was somewhere special when I found magazines on the table that were all current and even better, one was about food. I relaxed immediately. I was about to embark on a two-year journey wearing Invisalign retainers for 22hrs every day. I must admit that it felt like an impossible task as I was sure that I either ate or drank for much longer than that every day. Also, I was initially concerned how it might affect my speech. However, it soon became routine and I got so used to having them in that my speech was unaffected and they became part of the daily routine rather than something to be endured. They were just a part of life. My appointments with Sunil Hirani were unlike any previous visit to the dentists or the doctors or, as I will shortly come to, the hospital. I never once felt like anything less than a complete person while at SmileLux. I wasn’t a set of teeth or a problem to be fixed. I was a person and was always treated with kindness, respect, and friendship. It sounds obvious but it isn’t always the case. So, weeks passed and road marks were crossed as I completed six months, then 9, then a full year. Each set of aligners is numbered, so I counted them off month by month seeing the numbers rise. I was getting close to the end, number 42 out of 50, when things changed. I found that I had cancer. Actually, I had two – both apparently unrelated yet both in close proximity. One in a tonsil (Left) and one in the thyroid (also the left node). Two at once – wow, I was special at last. Clearly, with radio and chemotherapy on the horizon I would not be able to keep wearing the retainers full time so, after consultation with Sunil, it was decided that things could go on hold and I would keep wearing the current aligner overnight three or four times a week to keep things in position. Interesting times followed, during which I learned a number of interesting things about my treatments and a few more interesting things about myself. I could cope. In fact, I coped exceptionally well and went through my treatments with barely any concern. Chemotherapy, which I approached with some misgivings, having heard ‘stories’, turned out to be fine. I didn’t react badly to the chemicals used and actually felt better after a day’s treatment than I did at the start. Radiology gave my neck a suntan you wouldn’t believe! I can only assume that I was just very lucky. Things were detected in time, removed and the area treated. I had a session of Radio-iodine treatment as a ‘mopping-up’ measure, which involved me taking a tablet brought to me on a trolley and encased in a very heavy lead container. This is one of the ‘interesting times’ I mentioned. Cool, maybe I would glow in the dark. Apparently, some people thought they did but it was just the LED on the fire detector in the bathroom that caused that eerie effect when the light was turned off. Oh well, no superpowers then. After over a year of treatments and with nothing further, apart from check-ups, on the horizon, we decided it was time to go back to the aligners and I finally moved on to number 43. As always, appointments at SmileLux, were something to be looked forward to rather than something to feel trepidation about. It meant getting the next set in the number sequence. Once again, I was a person and treated almost as a family member. It was never anywhere to be afraid of going. Aligner numbers started to rise again and today I finally handed in number 50 along with much smiling and, a real surprise, a bottle of champagne and a congratulations card presented to me by the SmileLux team. I was always a bit self-conscious about my teeth, particularly the front ones at the top as they were quite V-shaped. As a child I recall my mother telling me that I had ‘gravestone’ teeth, as they tilted over in every direction. It was a bit of a joke and treatments of the type I had just completed simply weren’t available or just not an option. I lived with my teeth for 65 years, a time I thought to be far too long to do anything about it, but I was proven to be wrong. Two years, 50 aligners, with a bit of a gap for interesting things to happen, and I couldn’t be happier. Was it worth it? Yes! Undoubtedly. And cancer? Well, I have my regular check-ups and the ‘C’ word (Cured) won’t officially be used for a few more years, but it all looks very good. Just like my teeth. Thank you, guys. The best!

I had my dental treatment at Crowe because it’s a local clinic that’s not too far from me. They gave me the price before I made the appointment and it was worth it. The service was very good. I’ll be going back in six months time for a follow-up.

Rating from 12 Reviews Efficient and clearly explained treatmentBethan, UK, 15 12 17

I had booked an appointment at Cathedral Dental Clinic after waiting months to have my wisdom tooth removed on the NHS and with increasing pain in the tooth. Dr. Lesti was able to see me within a few days and after the initial appointment, I returned the next day to have my tooth removed. Everything was explained clearly and the extraction only took a few minutes. I recommend the clinic for efficient and clearly explained treatment! The clinic is welcoming and professional. Waiting time for appointments is days (rather than weeks as I have experienced in the past). I have had three appointments so far and each has been on time. Dr. Lesti clearly explained every stage of the treatment I required and set out a plan for future treatment that I can book when it suits me. I will be moving the whole family over to this clinic!

Rating from 3 Reviews I feel relaxed and confident that the procedures will go wellLemma, UK, 22 04 18

Went to Vineeth for a consultation re-implants and was very reassured by his professionalism and was put at ease by his kindliness. I felt seen as a person, not a job that would be earning money. Also after my x-ray which happened in his Livingston practice, he was able to explain the way my treatment would affect my mouth as a whole in a way that made sense. So although I will need a bone graft on one tooth I feel relaxed and confident that the procedures will go well. Very efficient clean and friendly.
