X-ray is the first step in the shorter or longer way of tooth conservation treatments. Before setting up the treatment plan it is necessary to have a perfect picture of the patient’s teeth, and the problems affecting the teeth, the mouth, and the jaw-bones, and we should not only try to find out what the problem is and how to treat it based only on the symptoms.
Small X-ray is usually used as a supplementary apparatus to the panoramic X-ray. After taking an all-round, yet rather detailed picture on the teeth of the patient, the places which for some reason are not well visible, or simply need a more detailed examination, are also X-rayed using the intraoral X-ray.
The intraoral X-ray does not have any side-effects, as so little radiation reaches the patient, which is totally negligible (and small X-ray is very rarely used). Actually, this is the characteristic for which it is also used when women having been pregnant for less then three-months visit us. However, the panoramic X-ray is not harmful for them, still safety is more important and the condition of the teeth is mapped using only the small X-ray.
The small X-ray makes a rather detailed, high-resolution picture, excellently showing the actual and formerly treated problems of the teeth, the conditions of inbuilt dentures, and besides this, it provides detailed information on the roots and the jawbone as well. Using the small X-ray is almost essential as it may explore such hidden problems, which the patient is not yet aware of, but if it is not treated in due time, may cause serious problems. The small X-ray is one of the most important equipment of prevention and curing.
