A cephalometric x-ray, also known as CEPH x-ray, allows the dentist to take a close look at the jaw bone, teeth and soft tissues of their patients. It provides them with a radiographic image of the side of the face. It is an extra oral way of getting the radiographic image, which means that the patient is not required to place a film inside their mouth. This makes it suitable for people who have sensitive gag reflexes.

Cephalometric X-Ray
at Same Day
Dental Implants

At Same Day Dental Implants Clinic, we use the latest machinery for a proper and accurate diagnosis. We have a state-of-the-art unit that allows dental experts to obtain cephalometric x-rays of the side of the patient’s mouth.

How it Works?

Usually, a panoramic X-ray machine is used to take cephalometric x-rays. It has a cephalometric film holder installed on its mechanical arm. The patient is asked to stand at the centre of the machine. Their head is secured at a particular spot. A technician is there to guide them in this regard. Once they are firm on their position, the arm of the x-ray unit moves in a side-to-side sweeping motion and captures the images of the side of the face. These images can be magnified up to 30% for enhanced clarity.

Benefits of CEPH X-Ray

  • Helps in Proper Diagnosis:This advanced diagnostic tool can help to identify the oral health issues properly, which, in turn, can assist the dental experts in devising a comprehensive treatment plan for the patient.
  • Painless:The process to get this x-ray is absolutely painless. There is no irritation or discomfort as the patient doesn’t have to keep the film in their mouth. So, people with strong or sensitive gag reflexes can also get them easily.
  • Quick:The process to get this x-ray is very quick. It can be taken in less than a minute.
  • Identification of Numerous Oral Health Issues:Several oral health issues can be identified and diagnosed with the help of a CEPH x-ray. These include malocclusions (bad bites), injuries or fractures to the teeth and jawbone, decays, cavities etc. Furthermore, the dentist can also view cheekbones and jaws. They can take the measurements of several boney landmarks.
