In order to thoroughly examine your smile, our team will take digital X-rays of your teeth, tooth roots, and underlying bone. These pictures will help us know if there are any dental issues in the areas of your smile that aren’t quite visible to the naked eye. We also use panoramic X-rays to give our dental team a detailed, clear, and panoramic image of your entire mouth and face. While standard X-rays, called bitewing X-rays, provide us with a view of a few teeth and the supporting bone structure, panoramic X-rays allow us to view the full upper and lower dental arches — including all of the teeth, the upper and lower jawbones, and the surrounding facial structures. If you have any questions about these X-rays or about our dental equipment, please call us at 406-602-4100. We are happy to help you. To find out more about digital and panoramic X-rays in Bozeman, Montana, please call Suite Dental at 406-602-4100 and arrange an appointment with our dentist, Dr. Roderick Spencer.
