Dental X-Rays, also known as dental radiographs, are indispensable diagnostic tools in modern dentistry that provide valuable insights into the oral health of a patient. By capturing detailed images of teeth, gums, and surrounding structures, these X-Rays assist dental professionals in identifying issues that may not be immediately visible during a routine dental examination.

Dental X-Rays can detect cavities between teeth, evaluate the status of developing teeth, assess bone density, and even identify tumors or other abnormalities. They are also crucial for examining the positioning of wisdom teeth. Occasionally, wisdom tooth extraction may be necessary if the impacted teeth are causing severe symptoms.

Safe, efficient, and minimally invasive, dental X-Rays are an important part of dental care, enabling earlier diagnosis and more effective treatment planning.

At True Dental Studio, we opt to use the digital X-Ray, which offers a host of advantages over traditional film-based X-Rays. These are some benefits:

  • Reduced Radiation Exposure: Digital X-Rays emit significantly less radiation compared to conventional film X-Rays.
  • Instant Imaging and Analysis: Digital X-Rays are instantly available for viewing, allowing for quicker diagnosis and immediate discussion of treatment options.
  • Enhanced Image Quality: Digital technology offers superior image quality, which can be easily manipulated and enhanced for a more accurate diagnosis. This ensures that even the smallest issues can be detected early, leading to better treatment outcomes.

By choosing digital X-Rays at True Dental Studio, you're opting for a safer, quicker, and more effective diagnostic experience.

Dental X-Ray: Radiation Level and Safety

The amount of radiation from a digital X-Ray at our facility is comparable to what one might experience during a flight to the United States based on radiation dosage figures from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The level of exposure for dental X-Ray falls within the range considered safe for routine diagnostic evaluation.

How often should you do a Dental X-Ray?

Patients at high risk for dental caries may consider undergoing routine dental X-Rays every 1-2 years for more vigilant oral health monitoring. A "high-caries risk" designation generally applies to individuals who have experienced tooth decay within the last three years or have previously received restorative dental care. These factors suggest a higher bacterial count in the oral environment, thus warranting more frequent screenings to maintain optimal dental health.

Frequently Asked Questions

A dental X-Ray is a diagnostic imaging technique used to capture detailed pictures of teeth, gums, and surrounding oral structures. It aids dental professionals in identifying hidden issues such as cavities, bone loss, and other abnormalities that may not be visible during a routine dental examination.

At True Dental Studio in Singapore, the cost of dental X-Ray services varies depending on the type of imaging required. A bitewing X-Ray starts at $30, an orthopantomogram (OPG) is priced at $90, and a 3D Cone Beam CT (Sectional) is available from $120.

Dental X-Rays are generally not painful. The procedure involves placing a digital sensor or a small film holder in your mouth, which may cause minor discomfort for a brief period. However, the actual process of taking the X-Ray is quick and should be painless.

The recommended frequency for dental X-Rays varies depending on several individual factors, such as age, overall oral health, and your susceptibility to dental issues. For those at elevated risk, particularly individuals with a past record of cavities and dental fillings, X-Rays may be advised more frequently, potentially once every 1 to 2 years. This allows for vigilant monitoring and timely treatment of any emerging dental problems.
