WHAT IS X-RAY(DIGITAL-RVG ? )

Digital radiography is one of the latest technologies utilized in the field of dentistry. The digital X-ray sensors are used for taking radiographs of traditional photographic film. The advantages of this type of radiography include freedom from chemical-based developing of the x-ray and secure transfer of the information of the radiographs. Also, less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography. Digital radiography has brought dentistry and its aspects to a new level. No more patients have to blindly believe in everything that they are told. They can see and understand that actually what’s going on in their teeth. For better results do get it done from a trained dental professional.

WHAT IS THE NEED FOR X-RAY(DIGITAL-RVG?

Tor periapical radiographs, the film or digital receptor should be placed parallel vertically to the full length of the teeth being imaged. The main indications for periapical radiography are[

  • Detect apical inflammation/ infection including cystic changes
  • Assess periodontal problems
  • Trauma-fractures to tooth and/or surrounding bone
  • Detect any presence or position of unerupted teeth

Intraoral periapical radiographs are widely used for the preoperative due to its simple technique, low cost and less radiation exposure and widely available in clinical settings

WHAT ARE THE INTRA-ORAL RADIOGRAPHIC TECHNIQUES?

Accurate positioning is of utmost importance to produce diagnostic radiographs and to avoid retakes, hence minimizing the radiation exposure of the patient.[9] The requirements for ideal positioning include

  • Tooth and image receptor (film packet or digital sensor) should be parallel to one another
  • The long axis of the image receptor is vertical for incisors and canines, and horizontal for premolars and molars. There should be enough receptor beyond the apices of the teeth for record of the apical tissues.
  • The X-ray beam from the tube-head should meet the tooth and the image receptor at right angles in both the vertical and horizontal planes
  • Positioning should be reproducible
  • The tooth under investigation and image receptor should be in contact, or as close together as possible

However, the anatomy of the oral cavity makes it challenging to satisfy the ideal positioning requirements. Two different techniques have hence been developed to be utilised in the undertaking of an intra-oral radiograph – Paralleling technique and Bisected angle technique. It is generally accepted that the paralleling technique offers more advantages than disadvantages, and gives a more reflective image, as compared to the bisecting angle technique.

IS THERE A RISK ASSOCIATED WITH TEETH WHITENING?

Teeth whitening do not have any risks associated however, some people may feel sensitivity for a few days or can experience mild gum irritation for some days. Because Teeth Whitening is a cosmetic procedure it is not advised to pregnant ladies. They can get it done only after delivery. To know more about Teeth whitening click here.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q.1. What is the full form of Dental RVG??

Dental RVG stands as an abbreviation for Dental Radiovisiography.

Q.2. What is the Definition of Dental RVG?

The Radiovisiography (RVG) dental imaging technique has common usage in the dental industry. It is generally used for capturing crisp and prominent intraoral periapical radiographs (around 20 LP/mm). The RVG system furnishes crystal clear high-resolution images for further dental testing and solutions.

What does a Dental RVG Constitute?

A dental RVG comprises the following parts:

  • Sensor (with configuration 275x182 mm)
  • Monitor
  • Other small microcomputer components
hat are the Uses of Dental RVG X-ray Machine?

Some of the important benefits of using a dental RVG x-ray machine are as follows:

  • To generate digital radiographs for interphalangeal joints and articular cartilages
  • Scanning multiple images with curtailed radiations
  • Tremendously effective and faster procedure for dental anatomical imaging
