Bitewing Digital X-Ray Procedure

Bitewing x-rays are the most common x-rays taken in dentistry. We use them to find cavities between the teeth, tartar on the roots, worn-out fillings, and the receding bone levels of periodontal disease. Digital x-ray sensors are quite sensitive, so the amount of radiation exposure is very low.
