Digital X-rays play a key role in orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning. Here at The Brace Place, we use cutting-edge digital radiographic technology to ensure that your orthodontic assessment is precise, efficient and comfortable, ensuring that you receive only the highest quality of care.

Digital X-rays offer numerous benefits of traditional film radiography, including:

  • Reduced Radiation Exposure: Digital X-rays require significantly less radiation, enhancing patient safety.
  • Immediate Image Accessibility: Unlike film, digital images are available instantly, allowing for on-the-spot examination and discussion of your dental health.
  • Enhanced Image Quality: The clarity and detail of digital images are superior, aiding in more accurate diagnoses.
  • Environmental Friendliness: Digital technology does not involve the harmful chemicals used in developing traditional X-ray films.

By using digital X-rays, Dr. Kurt Bray and Dr. Robert Olsen can more easily assess the alignment of your teeth and jaw, your bone density and healthy, the status of any impacted teeth, and whether or not corrective treatments will be needed to align your teeth and smile.

In addition to standard digital X-rays, our experienced orthodontists and team may also use other types of X-rays to gain a more comprehensive understanding of your oral structures and orthodontic needs. These other imaging technologies include panoramic X-rays and cephalometric X-rays.

  • Panoramic X-rays: This type of X-ray captures a complete view of your mouth in a single image. It encompasses all your teeth, the upper and lower jaws, and the surrounding structures. Panoramic X-rays are invaluable for assessing tooth alignment, the development of wisdom teeth and the structure of the jaw bone, which are critical in planning orthodontic treatments.
  • Cephalometric X-rays: These are side-view images of the head that show the teeth relative to the jaw and profile of the face. Cephalometric X-rays are essential for understanding the relationships between teeth, jaw and facial symmetry, which helps in crafting personalized orthodontic treatment plans.
