At Bayside Family Dentistry, we use the latest technology to ensure our patients enjoy smooth, comfortable services that allow us to treat their teeth and smiles to the best possible care. To help us do this, we use the Orthophos® XG 3D. These specialized x-ray devices take complete images of our patients’ teeth and set us up for success when we’re looking into what could be causing our patient’s issues.



What is the Orthophos®?

This special x-ray device is the perfect tool for any dentist’s office because it offers a range of programs and diagnostic tools that help us to identify concerns with our patients’ teeth quickly and easily. The device was designed to be extremely efficient and its bite block ensures that we can get the picture we need on the first try. This way, you don’t have to be uncomfortable for any longer than absolutely necessary.

Who Does the Device Help?

The x-ray is perfect for all our endodontic, periodontic, orthodontic, implant, and surgery patients. Since we can see so clearly into the workings of a patient’s teeth, we can accurately diagnose and treat anyone who comes in with tooth pain, cracked teeth, or those who will be undergoing oral surgery for their wisdom teeth, dental implants, and more. It can even help us to perfect the plan we lay out for our patients receiving braces.

When you’re dealing with tooth pain, the last thing you want is to wait for treatment, and this device makes diagnosing any issues that much quicker.

Details about the Orthophos® XG 3D

The device is special because it offers both 2D and 3D options as a hybrid unit. That means your dentist can trust it for superior image quality, which means that you can relax knowing that you’re getting the best possible pictures of your teeth for advanced treatment and care. Plus, the device emits the lowest possible effective dose of radiation, making it safe for adults and children.
