Altona Dentist – Dental X Ray
Dental X-Rays explained by Altona Bay Dental Clinic dentists in Altona: Dental X-Ray is an adjunct to the dental check up, as it provides information which the dentist can’t see.
It helps the dentist to detect hidden problems and complete an accurate treatment plan.
At the dental checkup appointment with the dentist, an OPG referral will be given, which is an x-ray of the whole mouth which enables the dentist to check the following:
- Bone levels surrounding the teeth
- The temporomandibular joint
- Abnormal lesions such as cysts, abscesses, tumours
Our Dentist in Altona also recommends that you take bitewings every two years to check for holes in between the teeth and under fillings.
