We provide interpretation services for conventional intraoral and extraoral radiographs as well as CBCT studies by a board-certified oral and maxillofacial radiologist. Our reports provide systematic reviews and summaries of significant radiographic findings, including those that are incidental or pathological. A basic interpretation will focus on any evident abnormal radiographic findings, with particular emphasis on provider’s clinical concern(s). 

Typical indications may include implant fixture treatment planning, endodontic complications, maxillofacial trauma, and evaluation of teeth impactions, temporomandibular joints, paranasal sinuses, and pathology. Airway analysis reconstructed from CBCT images is available upon request.
