Dental x-rays (OPG and cephalometry) are specialised x-ray images of your teeth and jaw to determine the health of your teeth, their position and growth, or assess the current and future movement of the jaw which is helpful in planning of orthodontic treatments.
A walk-in x-ray service is provided at our Hunter Valley site in Cessnock and at our Newcastle location in Waratah and no bookings are required. A referral and Medicare card are needed.
All Medicare eligible dental x-rays scans are bulk billed with no fee to the patient.
What preparation is required?
Please ensure that all earrings and jewellery around your face and mouth is removed prior to your appointment.
When can I expect the results of the dental x-ray?
All dental x-rays are reported by our radiologists the same day, and your dentist will receive the result electronically.
Appointments are not necessary for OPG and dental examinations and can be performed anytime during Clarity opening hours.
