Dr. Mark Burbey, Orthodontist
What Are Orthodontic X-Rays?
Here at Burbey Orthodontics, we typically take two separate x-rays, a cephalometric x-ray, and a panoramic x-ray when a patient comes in for records. These images are critical in helping Dr. Burbey create the perfect treatment plan for you. X-rays are taken throughout treatment if needed and after treatment is completed before the braces are removed. With continual images taken, Dr. Burbey can decide what is working or what needs to be changed in order to fix any type of issue.
- Orthodontic x-rays typically show:
- Root issues and the direction of the root
- Position of teeth- present or incoming
- Jaw alignment and profile of the face
