Dental X-Rays explained by dentists at Ballarat Dental Care: Dental X-Ray with dentist Ballarat is an adjunct to the dental check up, as it provides information which the dentist can’t visually see and perform examination.
Dentists can detect hidden problems and complete an accurate treatment plan using an x-ray.
At the dental checkup appointment with the dentist, an OPG referral can also be given, which is an x-ray of the whole mouth which enables the dentist to check the following:
- Fillings in the teeth
- Bone levels surrounding the teeth
- The mandibular joint
- Abnormal lesions such as cysts, abscesses, tumors
Our Dentists in Ballarat also recommends that you take a bite wings every two years to check for holes in between the teeth and under the fillings.
If you need any dental x-rays done at Ballarat, please call our Ballarat Dental Care to book your dental x-ray appointment. The can also do a referral for bulk billing X-rays of whole mouth.
