Orthodontic studies:
Orthodontic records include x-ray images and photographs. These records may be taken more than once throughout the course of treatment. The initial records are used to determine facial growth patterns and to plan treatment. Subsequent images are taken to compare to initial records and to measure treatment progress.

 

Panoramic Projection:
The panoramic is an overview image that is used to show the upper and lower jaws, erupted and unerupted teeth, and to evaluate root alignment, TMJ's and the sinuses.

 

Cephalometric Projections:
These images are acquired in standardized lateral (side) and posteroanterior (front) projections. These views show the bone and soft tissues of the head, and are used to evaluate jaw growth and spatial relationships of the upper and lower jaws.

 

Full Mouth Periapicals:
Periapical images show the teeth and supporting bone with a great amount of detail. These images are used to identify dental cavities, short roots, and abnormalities involving the bone adjacent to the teeth.

 

Periapical X-Rays:
When a full FMX series is not required, Volumetric Imaging Centers can perform any combination of individual periapical images. We use the latest in periapical film for the lowest reduced radiation exposure to the patient.

 

Bite Wings:
When a full FMX series is not required,
Volumetric Imaging Centers can perform any combination of a-la-carte bite wing images. You have the option of choosing from horizontal and vertical bitwings.

 

Radiologist Interpretation:
In order to assist your treatment planning, a thorough interpretation of the x-ray is available from a professional radiologist.
