Tooth X-ray

A tooth X-ray is usually used for imaging single or adjacent teeth.

Tooth X-ray or bitewing can be used to gain more detailed information on the roots of a tooth or adjacent teeth. These small-scale X-ray images can also be used, for example, to diagnose cavities between the teeth.

The service process

The treatment starts with assessing the necessity of X-ray imaging. In accordance with good imaging practice, the dentist or other physician treating the patient decides whether a dental X-ray is needed and sets the imaging time in connection with clinical examination. In other words, a dental X-ray always requires a referral from a dentist or a physician.

A tooth X-ray is taken at the dentist’s, sitting comfortably in the treatment chair, with a small X-ray device that is inserted into the mouth.
