Unveiling the Mystery: Types of Dental X-rays

There are three main types of dental X-rays used in Nairobi

Bite-wing X-rays

These capture detailed images of the upper and lower teeth coming together, revealing cavities between teeth and bone health around the roots.

Periapical X-rays

These provide a more focused view of individual teeth, including the root structure and surrounding bone, aiding diagnosis of infections, root fractures, or abscesses

Panoramic X-rays (OPGs)

OPGs offer a wide-angle view of your entire upper and lower jaw, including all teeth, the jawbone, sinuses, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ). This comprehensive picture is valuable for planning orthodontic treatment, assessing wisdom teeth development, or detecting jawbone issues.

Significance of CBCT scans in X-rays & Opg at Keridam Dental

  • Improved understanding of the patient’s condition
  • Enhanced predictability in surgical planning
  • Minimized risk during complex procedures like dental implant surgery

Are dental X-rays safe?

Safety of Dental X-rays

The radiation risk from a dental X-ray is quite small. In fact, the amount of radiation you get from a full set of dental X-rays is comparable to the amount of radiation you absorb from things like: TVs, smartphones and computers. Building materials like ceramic floor tiles and granite countertops. Background radiation from the sun, stars and the Earth itself. In extremely large doses, however, dental X-rays can be harmful and may even increase your cancer risk. That’s why you shouldn’t have X-rays more often than necessary. Your healthcare provider can help you weigh the risks vs. benefits of dental X-rays.

    Uses of Dental X-Rays

    1. For Detecting Tooth Decay: Dental X-rays can give information about tooth decay (causing cavities) that may not be visible to a dentist’s naked eye. If cavities are detected at an early stage, the damage caused by it is very minimal.
    2. Assessing your Tooth & Root Structure: Dental X-rays help dentists to analyze the structure of your teeth & roots helping to detect root infections, fractures or any other abnormalities.
    3. Gum & Periodontal Health: These X-rays can reveal the health of your gums & health of bone supporting your teeth thereby assisting in diagnosing gum diseases like gingivitis & periodontitis.
    4. Impacted Teeth: Dental X-rays are very useful in identifying impacted teeth such as your wisdom teeth that may require an extraction.
    5. Orthodontic Treatments: Dentists & orthodontists use X-rays for planning orthodontic treatments such as braces or Invisalign.
    6. Implant Planning: Dental X-rays can help assess bone quality for a proper dental implant placement.
    Dental extractions

    Depending on the issue, non-surgical treatments might be possible. Our experts evaluate each case to determine the best course of action.

    • Bite-wing X-ray: Kshs. 500 – Kshs. 1,500
    • Periapical X-ray: Kshs. 1,000 – Kshs. 2,000

    Dental X-rays are generally painless procedures. The X-ray machine itself doesn’t cause any discomfort. You might feel slight pressure when the X-ray film is positioned in your mouth.

    Dental X-rays can be a valuable tool for dentists to detect signs of tooth infections, such as bone loss around the tooth root or pus accumulation. However, additional examinations by the dentist might be necessary for a definitive diagnosis.

    Dental X-rays provide valuable insights into your oral health beyond what a visual examination can reveal. They can help dentists detect:

    Cavities between teeth, even in their early stages
    Bone loss around teeth, a sign of gum disease
    Infections in the tooth root or jawbone
    Impacted teeth (wisdom teeth) that are stuck below the gum line
    Fractures in the teeth or jawbone
    The development and positioning of teeth, especially for children
