Bitewing x-rays show the upper and lower teeth in one area of the mouth in detail. Each bitewing x-ray shows the tooth from its crown to the level of the supporting bone. Bitewing x-rays help the dentist detect if there is decay between the patient’s teeth or in dental fillings and if there are changes in the thickness of the bone that is caused by gum disease. Bitewing x-rays also help define the correct fit for a crown, and other restorations such as bridges.
Periapical X-rays are used for dentists to see the whole tooth of the patient, from the crown all the way to where the tooth attaches to the jaw. Periapical x-rays show all teeth in either the upper or lower portion of the jaw and help detect any abnormal changes in the root of the tooth and its surrounding bone structures.
Occlusal X-rays are used to track the full development and placement of the entire arch of the teeth in either the upper or lower jaw.
What types of problems do X-rays help detect?
X-rays help your dentist diagnose problems in your teeth and jaws.
In adults, X-rays show:
- Decay, especially small areas of decay between teeth.
- Decay beneath existing fillings.
- Bone loss in the jaw.
- Changes in the bone or root canal due to infection.
- Condition and position of teeth to help prepare for tooth implants, braces, dentures or other dental procedures.
- Abscesses (an infection at the root of a tooth or between the gum and a tooth).
- Cysts and some types of tumors.
In children, X-rays determine:
- If decay is developing.
- If there is enough space in the mouth to fit all incoming teeth.
- If wisdom teeth are developing.
- If teeth are impacted (unable to emerge through the gums).
