Dental X-ray

Proper care is always based on a correct and reliable diagnosis, which is confirmed by a careful clinical and radiological examination. A high-quality X-ray image is the foundation of the correct diagnosis. Our competent radiologists and state-of-the-art imaging methods guarantee the quality of our work. Our investment in dental digital imaging follows closely the newest development in dental radiology and enables increasingly better diagnostics and increasingly more effective X-ray examination service.

We perform general examinations of the teeth through panoramic tomography and necessary supplementary intraoral images. In addition, our range of examinations includes odontological skull imaging, tomographic imaging of the jaws and micro-computed tomography.

In addition to ordinary dental X-ray machines, we also use a dental computed tomography device, 3D Accuitomo. The micro CT device provides 3D graphic information of the tooth and jaw region, and the resulting images can be viewed from any direction. 3D Accuitomo enables comprehensive examination of the dental and maxillofacial region. As micro-computed tomography is a digital imaging method, the images are provided to the customers in high-quality prints or digitally on a CD.

Radiological examinations always require a referral from a dentist or physician. Complicated examinations require an appointment. Ordinary X-ray examinations can be arranged without an appointment. It is also possible to book an appointment

What dental X-ray examinations are there and for what are they used?

Various radiographs can be taken of the teeth. The object of the imaging and the type of the image are selected depending on the situation.

The entire jaw region can be imaged in a panoramic tomography image, also known as a PTG image. PTG imaging is the best way of evaluating the status of the entire mouth and jaw area, and it is recommended to be taken at regular intervals. The PTG image also shows the need for any more detailed images. In evaluating the positions of wisdom teeth and jaw traumas, a PTG image is the first choice.

An X-ray image is taken of an individual tooth and its root when an inflammation in the tooth's pulp is suspected. A Bite-Wing X-ray is taken to evaluate the caries situation, imaging one half of jaw at a time. In connection with orthodontic treatment, the structures of the skull and jaws are imaged to find out occlusion ratios and help in planning the treatment.

Is X-radiation dangerous?

The amount of radiation to which people are exposed in dental X-ray examinations is minimal. The radiation dose received when a single tooth is imaged corresponds to the background radiation of 2 to 8 hours. The same radiation dose is also caused by a two-hour flight. Nevertheless, unnecessary dental X-ray images are avoided and pregnant women are not recommended to undergo imaging. In addition, organs that are sensitive to radiation are covered with lead guards in connection with the imaging.

X-ray examinations at Oral

Oral Hammaslääkärit is a trailblazer in dental X-ray imaging. Oral is the largest dental X-ray examination unit in the Nordic countries. Proper care is always based on a correct and reliable diagnosis, which is confirmed by a careful clinical and radiological examination. A high-quality X-ray image is the foundation of the correct diagnosis. Our competent radiologists and state-of-the-art imaging methods guarantee the quality of our work. Our investment in dental digital imaging follows closely the newest development in dental radiology and enables increasingly better diagnostics and increasingly more effective X-ray examination service.
