X-Rays (Dental OPG)

X-Rays

X-Rays are an essential part of providing dental care and treatment, however many patients are worried about their exposure to the radiation. Our commitment to patient safety is why we use digital X-Rays which ensure that there is minimal exposure to radiation.

In addition to minimal radiation exposure, our digital X-Rays are more precise, quicker at processing and provide clearer images, thus allowing our dental experts to provide the best possible care for your teeth.

Dental OPG

What are OPG X-Rays?

OPGs are a piece of x-ray technology that can capture a panoramic x-ray of both the upper and lower jaw including the teeth.

The OPG X-Ray machine is designed to rotate around the head during a scan so as to get a complete view of the jaw structure. OPG X-Rays can used to view:

  • Tooth roots
  • Wisdom teeth
  • Jaw bones
  • Jaw joints
  • Sinuses


An OPG provides our dentists with a comprehensive view of the jaw and more accurate layout of the teeth allowing them to achieve optimal results from your treatment.

River Dental are committed to providing the best possible dental care for you and your entire family.
