Advanced Dental X-Rays

Wicker Park Dental Studio in Chicago is equipped with the latest in dental X-ray technology, ensuring that every diagnosis is accurate and every treatment plan is effectively tailored to your needs.

Why Are Dental X-Rays Essential in Modern Dentistry?

Dental X-rays play a crucial role in modern dentistry. They allow us to see what's happening beneath the surface of your gums, detect problems before they become serious, and plan treatments with precision. From identifying hidden decay and gum disease to assessing the health of your jaw bone, dental X-rays provide invaluable information that is not visible during a regular dental examination.

What Is the Process for Getting a Dental X-Ray at Our Clinic?

When you come in for a dental X-ray, our team will guide you through a simple and efficient process. You’ll be positioned so that the X-ray machine aligns properly with your mouth. The process is quick, usually taking only a few minutes, and you will feel no discomfort.

Different Types of Dental X-Rays and Their Uses

We offer several types of dental X-rays at Wicker Park Dental Studio:

  • Bitewing X-Rays: Ideal for detecting cavities between teeth.
  • Panoramic X-Rays: Provide a broad view of the entire mouth, including the jaws, teeth, and sinuses.
  • Periapical X-Rays: Focus on two complete teeth from root to crown.
  • 3D Imaging: For detailed views, useful in planning complex procedures like implants.

Addressing Safety Concerns: The Safety of Dental X-Rays

Safety is a top priority. Our dental X-rays are performed using low radiation exposure techniques. We also provide protective gear, such as lead aprons, to ensure your safety.
