A dental x-ray is an essential diagnostic tool for any oral surgeon. In the past, x-rays required film slides, complete with a long and tedious development process. These days, we use digital x-rays due to their numerous advantages over traditional methods.
Intraoral x-rays are the most common type of dental radiograph. To conduct a digital intraoral x-ray, a small electronic sensor is placed in the mouth. The sensor allows us to capture images of your teeth, roots, and supportive bone without the use of film slides. The position of the electronic sensor is dictated by the type of intraoral x-ray you need.
Digital x-rays omit up to 90% less radiation than a film x-ray. They also allow us to magnify or manipulate the image to gain a more comprehensive overview of your oral structures. Without the film development process, we can retake an x-ray instantly and share them electronically, all without affecting the environment.

Cone Beam CT Scan and 3D Imaging
When a digital x-ray fails to provide enough information, Dr. Cynthia Colson may order a cone beam CT scan. A CBCT scan is another form of digital radiography that gives us an even more detailed look at your oral and maxillofacial structures. With CBCT scans, we get a 3D representation of your teeth, bone, gums, and other soft tissues.
CBCT scans allow us to better determine the root cause of a symptom or problem. They also allow us to develop more precise surgical plans for dental implants, tooth extractions, bone grafting, gum grafting, and many other restorative procedures. In other words, CBCT and 3D imaging have revolutionized the way we perform oral surgery.
