Panoramic and Cephalometric
Intraoral Full Mouth Survey
Depending on your oral health, dental history, and any particular issues you may be having, a full mouth intraoral radiographic survey commonly known as an FMX may be ordered by the dentists. This radiographic study is comprised of two types or intraoral x-rays. Bitewing and periapical X-rays show greater detail of each tooth, root and surrounding bone.
Show the crowns of the back teeth and the supporting bone near the crowns of the teeth. At your dental visit we will take one or two bite-wing X-rays on each side of the mouth that will show the upper and lower molars and premolars. These X-rays help the dentists find "No-flossing cavities" decay between the back teeth.
Dental 3D CBCT Scan
A Dental CAT Scan allows Dr. Schwartz the ability to immediately see a three dimensional image of your facial and jaw bone structures. Dental CT scans have low radiation compared to hospital CAT scans and are very useful for evaluation prior to dental implant surgery, for patients with jaw bone pathology and severely impacted teeth. This advance imaging allows for precise measurements prior to implant placement. For your convenience our office will make the necessary arrangements for you to obtain a Hi-Tech Cone beam Dental CAT Scan (I-Cat) when necessary in order to establish an appropriate treatment. plan for you.
