Dental Imaging Technology used by Dentists
Dental imaging is a great tool to learn about the presence of cavities, dental infections, oral masses and even bone loss in a patient. Traditional x- rays generally reveal the issues in your dental structure and various other problems with your teeth. Dental imaging is an advanced procedure that entirely depends on the extent of radiation penetrating through the patient’s dental structures.
Digital X-rays are one of the most important advancements in dentistry. This technology replaces the traditional films used in conventional X-rays. Digital X-rays help diagnose dental health issues more safely and quickly. A digital X-ray emits 90 percent less radiation than a traditional X-ray. The images from this X-ray show up immediately so our dentist can quickly determine your oral health needs.Read more about Digital X-rays
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
