What Are Cephalometric X-rays?
Cephalometric x-rays enable the dentist to capture a complete image of the side of the face. These unique x-rays require no plates or film to be inserted into the mouth and provide images of the nasal and sinus passages. Cephalometric x-rays are usually taken with a panoramic x-ray machine. This type of x-ray exposes the body to less radiation. The dental team at Creating Beautiful Smiles in Racine, WI will discuss the various types of x-rays available to you during your routine dental exam.
What to Expect from Cephalometric X-rays
Cephalometric x-rays are generally not used as often as traditional dental x-rays, but they can help provide useful information. These x-rays provide views of the side profile of the face and views of the jaw in relation to the cheekbone, provide information about malocclusions, allow for measurement of the teeth, identify tooth or jawbone fractures, and assist in the orthodontic planning process. These high-tech x-rays are noninvasive. Your head is placed between the mechanical rotating arm and the film holder. The arm rotates around your head, capturing the needed images. The dentists at Creating Beautiful Smiles use cephalometric x-rays to plan the placement of dental implants and more.
