Did you know that a dental X-Ray can help your dentist, Dr. Michael Shnayder, identify dental issues even when they’re not visible to the naked eye? Well, it’s true! Dental X-Rays in Omaha, Nebraska, are beneficial images that can show you the many details of your smile so you can prevent as well as see dental problems.

There are many different types of X-Rays in the world today, and each one has its own benefits and characteristics. Here are some X-Rays that could be used at Village Pointe Oral Surgery:

Periapical: A periapical X-Ray takes an image of the entire tooth, including the crown, roots, and bones that support it.

Bite-Wing: A bite-wing X-Ray provides a picture of the back teeth. The image shows the dentist how the back molars touch together and it also shows tooth decay if it is present between the teeth.

Panoramic: A panoramic X-Ray provides an image of the teeth, jaws, nose, sinuses, and jaw joint areas. This is a beneficial X-Ray for those who need orthodontic treatment or dental implants.

Occlusal: An occlusal X-Ray shows the floor of the mouth to show the upper and lower jaw. This is a great way to examine the bite. This X-Ray can also highlight the development of children’s baby and permanent teeth.
