Dental X-Rays - OPG (Orthopantomogram) & Lat Ceph (Lateral Cephalometric Radiograph)
An OPG provides a panoramic view of the mouth, teeth and bones of the upper and lower jaws.
The Lat Ceph results in a lateral or sideways view of the face, regularly used in the diagnosis and treatment of orthodontic problems.
NEW – Advanced 3D X-Rays
Our recently fitted Orthophos XG x-ray machine makes the x-ray procedure easier and safer than ever. Patients can get a full scans of their teeth performed in a comfortable and straightforward manner, with the option of a full 3D scan.
This advanced machine is only available in a limited number of dental clinics around the South, putting ItalDent at the forefront of patient comfort and convenience.
How does it work?
The dental technician will adjust the machine for the patient's height, then the patient just needs to stand or sit in position for a few seconds whilst the machine does all the work. It's quick, simple and much more precise than a regular dental x-ray. It even easily accommodates children and wheelchairs.
Less x-rays, more clarity
The Orthophos machine uses a lower dose of x-rays than older devices, with adjustments to allow optimum image quality.
Advantages of 3D scanning
For complicated procedures such as Implants and Dentures, the introduction of 3D imaging makes preparations highly reliable and much less invasive. With a single visit, the dental technician can view a highly detailed three dimensional view of a patient's entire jaw, within just a few minutes.
