The technical possibilities of the dental practice Zahnarztpraxis Uetikon am See include not only the conventional digital detail but also the digital panoramic x-ray (OPT).


New digital dental x-ray imaging systems now use up to 90% less radiation than regular (analog) x-rays. Since they can be stored on a hard drive, they are easier to manage and find. Along with these benefits, digital x-ray technologies use less radiation than analog film counterparts, making them safer for patients and physicians, and offering practices a more environmentally friendly option as they eliminate the use of photo-processing chemicals.


The images are immediately available, can be evaluated immediately and we can plan or continue the treatment without delay, saving you a lot of time and inconvenience.

I am proud to be able to offer you high-resolution digital 2D diagnostics with a radiation dose reduced by up to 90% compared to analog standardized X-rays.

Application areas:

  • General dentistry: inflammation of the apical region (root tip), periodontal conditions, minor oral surgery, root resorptions

  • Oral and maxillofacial surgery: e.g., displaced teeth, fracture diagnostics, sinus diagnostics, cysts, residual roots

  • Orthodontics: displaced, impacted teeth, imaging during the change of teeth (mixed dentition period), cleft lip, jaw and palate

  • Implantology: Determination of the bone volume for a planned dental implant(s), locating the nerve canal, relationship to the paranasal sinuses


Why do we need X-rays?

  1. Looking for tooth decay: sometimes interdental tooth decay is invisible to the naked eye. Caries diagnostics using artificial intelligence (AI) is now available in the Zahnarztpraxis Uetikon am See.

  2. Check for bone loss: an x-ray shows whether and how much bone loss has occurred.

  3. Check for invisible secondary caries under existing restorations: this type of decay can only be detected using x-rays.

  4. Check for an infection at the root tip: if you have an infection at the root tip (apex) causing bone dissolution, this will be confirmed by an x-ray.

  5. To examine all areas prior to an intervention that are not clinically visible: give the dentist a detailed overview of teeth and bones.



The guidelines state that children who are not at high risk of tooth decay should have an X-ray every one to two years.

Adolescents who are not at high risk should get them every one-and-a-half to three years and adults who are not at high risk should get them every two to three years.
