CEPH, Cephalometric X-Ray, is used in Centennial dentistry to detect yet unseen conditions that may be of concern. This type of x-ray involves whole skull and profile views.
This revolutionary tool is very popular with orthodontists. It can identify weakened areas of the jaw, or tooth alignment issues that may indicate a particular corrective method.
Since the images taken by CEPH show a patient’s breathing passages, hidden conditions like Sleep Apnea can be diagnosed.
X-ray is an important part of a dental exam, and advanced technology has highly improved the techniques.
