Dental Imaging Techniques
When you go to our dentist, a large part of the initial visit is dedicated to taking tests and/or diagnosing any dental issues you may be experiencing. In many cases, the kind of x-ray we use can provide an immediate results, which makes it easier for both our dentist and you to understand the problem and assess it accordingly.
Among the most commonly used dental imaging techniques, digital x-rays are useful as they do not expose you to as much radiation as film x-rays tend to do. The imaging results helps our dentist identify any growths or abnormalities in the gums, teeth and enamel with ease.
The x-ray machine is connected to a computer that showcases the image within minutes of them being taken. This not only makes your dental appointment shorter, it also allows our dentist to view the results immediately instead of having to wait hours or days.
An intraoral camera is a small video camera that takes an image of the outside of the gum or tooth. The intraoral camera resembles an oversized pen. While simultaneously viewing a monitor, the dentist inserts the camera into a patient's mouth and gently shifts it about so that images can be taken from a variety of angles.Read more about Intraoral Camera
