The Evolution of Orthodontic X-Ray Technology

Orthodontic x-ray technology has undergone a remarkable evolution, reshaping the landscape of orthodontic diagnostics. In the early stages, practitioners relied on traditional film-based x-rays, which, while groundbreaking at the time, presented limitations in image quality and efficiency. The advent of digital radiography marked a pivotal shift, offering benefits such as reduced radiation exposure and enhanced image precision. Further propelling the field forward, three-dimensional imaging and Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) emerged, providing orthodontists at Randall Orthodontics with detailed, panoramic views of teeth, jaws, and surrounding structures for more accurate treatment planning. At Randall Orthodontics, we embrace these technological strides, ensuring our patients experience the latest advancements, resulting in a more comfortable, efficient, and tailored orthodontic journey.
