BRISBANE, Australia: While some dental clinics are still using conventional dental radiographs, digital dental radiographs are becoming increasingly popular in many dental clinics across Australia. In our Brisbane-based dental clinic we use two digital radiographic machines in our surgeries and we are planning to invest in a new CBCT machine in 2019.
BRISBANE, Australia: Pregnancy is a unique experience in a woman’s life; however, it may significantly affect her own and her child’s oral health.
