Dental Imaging

We provide a comprehensive range of Dental Imaging and Reporting services. Some of these types of scans are called an OPG, Lat Ceph, a Cone Beam CT and Dentascan. Dento-Maxillofacial Reporting or ‘DMFR’ is a specialised area and our DMF Radiologists bring their advanced experience and knowledge to the Sunshine Coast Community.

Dental x-rays are quick and the radiation dose is very low. This provides important results to your dentist, orthodontist, or specialist. Diagnosis is very important, as undiagnosed conditions can result in complication or further disease in the affected area. Diagnostic dental imaging can help provide early detection, which increases the chances of successful treatment and recovery. The radiation dose in dental imaging is very low.

An OPG is a special type of x-ray that looks at the lower face, teeth, jaw and sinuses. It gives a wide view x-ray of your lower face and is able to display all the teeth of the upper and lower jaw. 

No special preparation is required, but patients will be required to remove any jewellery or metallic items from the head and neck region.

At the time of the procedure on the day, our healthcare team will discuss the detail of what will happen during the procedure.

The results and images will be sent to your referring doctor.

Most Medicare eligible examinations are bulk billed. Fees may apply for some procedures. Our friendly reception staff will advise you on the cost of your procedure at the time of your booking.

A Dental examination can take from 20 – 30 minutes to complete, depending on the examination requested.
