Modern dentistry + State-of-the-art technology

Medical imaging has been revolutionizing the medical world for decades now—and dentistry is no exception. Thereby, traditional x-rays on film have been gradually replaced by digital x-rays.

Why are x-rays needed?

Digital x-rays are an essential diagnostic tool used along with a visual examination. Mainly, they help detect anomalies that would otherwise be invisible to the naked eye, for quick, preventive action.

In general, x-rays are taken during a regular dental check-up. There are four types:

  • Bite-wing
  • Periapical (one tooth, from root to crown)
  • Panoramic (a panorex shows the entire dental structure)
  • Cephalometric (neuromuscular and orthodontic treatments)

Advantages:

  • Minimal exposure to radiation
  • Safe, quick and comfortable
  • High quality images and better contrast for improved sharpness
  • Images are saved in the patient’s electronic file
  • Easy to share with other health professionals or insurance company
  • Small environmental footprint

What x-rays detect

Digital x-rays can show anomalies and disease under the gums, on the alveolar bone or on the root, such as:

  • Interdental cavity
  • Dental malposition
  • Bone loss
  • Cyst or abscess
  • Lesion (cancerous or non-cancerous)
  • Developmental anomaly

The clinique use advanced technology and is very modern and clean. It is also convenient to make an appointment with Dr Malouf, for shedule and location. He has a caring approach when consultation and surgery. Overall, very satisfied by the service, I already recommended him to my family and friends.
