Ceph X-ray

Dental X-ray in Oslo

Ceph is an advanced digital technology used to evaluate and plan orthodontics. It gives us the opportunity to make an accurate analysis of your facial skeleton and teeth, thus providing a more precise treatment plan. Ceph is used in conjunction with orthodontic treatment and is an important part of our approach to giving you a beautiful smile.


What is Ceph X-ray?

Ceph X-ray is a type of advanced X-ray that gives us a three-dimensional image of your face, teeth and jaws. This is an important diagnostic technique that allows us to plan your dental treatment and ensure accurate and precise results. During a Ceph X-ray treatment, we place a special device near your head and take an image that can show us areas that normal X-rays cannot. This gives us a detailed overview of your tooth structure, as well as the jaw and facial bones, which is particularly useful when planning orthodontics and surgical interventions.

When is a Ceph X-ray recommended?

We recommend a Ceph X-ray when we need to examine tooth structures that cannot be seen with normal X-rays. This may be necessary when we plan braces or other surgical interventions. Ceph X-rays also give us information about the facial skeleton and can help us diagnose problems that affect your bite and chewing function. We can also use Ceph X-rays to monitor your dental treatment and ensure that the treatment is going as planned, giving you a beautiful smile and good oral health.

Is a Ceph X-ray safe?

Yes, the Ceph X-ray is a safe and painless procedure that usually takes less than 10 minutes. We use minimal radiation during the procedure and we take all necessary precautions to ensure you are safe and comfortable throughout the process. If you are concerned about the Ceph X-ray or have any questions about the procedure, you can always contact us before your appointment and we can explain the process and answer any questions you may have.

How to prepare for a Ceph X-ray?

There are no special preparations necessary before a Ceph X-ray. However, it is important to inform your dentist about any medical conditions or medications you are taking. You must also remove jewelry and other metal objects before the procedure, as these can affect the images. If you are pregnant or suspect you may be pregnant, you must inform your dentist before the procedure, as X-rays can harm the fetus.

Dental Health Tips:

  • Brush your teeth properly: Brush your teeth thoroughly twice a day for at least two minutes each time. Use a fluoride toothpaste to strengthen tooth enamel.
  • Clean between the teeth: Use dental floss or interdental brushes daily to remove plaque and food debris that the brush cannot reach.
  • Visit the dentist regularly: Go to the dentist at least twice a year for routine check-ups and professional teeth cleaning.
  • Eat a healthy diet: Reduce your intake of sugary foods and drinks that can lead to tooth decay. Eat more fruits, vegetables and calcium-rich foods to maintain strong teeth.
  • Avoid tobacco products: Smoking and sniffing can cause dental problems and gum disease. Try to stop or reduce the use of these products for better dental health.
  • Protect your teeth during activities: Use a mouth guard during sports activities or when you perform activities with a risk of tooth damage.
  • Care for dentures: If you have dentures, be sure to clean them regularly and store them safely to avoid damage and infection.
