Dental Imaging

When it comes to dental imaging, our dentist is implementing new instruments and methods offered by the modernization of technology making the process more efficient and effective.

Digital X-rays

Digital X-rays are one of the most important advancements in dentistry. The technology replaces the film used in conventional X-rays with advanced electronic sensors.

Here are some great benefits of digital X-rays:

Unlike traditional X-rays, digital X-ray caus less exposure to radiation

It enables our dentist to make an accurate diagnosis more efficiently

It reduces the use of waste materials or harsh chemicals, unlike conventional X-rays

It is less time-consuming and provides immediate results

It offers better imaging results, enabling our dentist to diagnose abnormalities in teeth, gums or enamel instantly

In addition, this technique of digital imaging provides exceptional quality images to our dentist with the use of much less radiation. Also, our dentist can adjust the image (contrast or brightness) according to their requirements by using simple processing techniques. The technique have become one of the most adopted methods used in digital imaging.

Intraoral Camera

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. 

The intraoral camera is extremely helpful in diagnosing dental conditions such as tooth decay and cracked teeth and in educating the patient. Since the intraoral camera is used in tandem with a computer screen or television monitor, your dentist can easily show you, in real-time, if you have a fractured tooth or need gum disease treatment. A picture is worth a thousand words!

Time-savings that come with the intraoral camera are especially noticeable when your dentist needs to take several images at one time. Intraoral camera images are easy to re-take, print and duplicate. Printouts can be sent to dental insurance companies to strengthen claims. In fact, these images are so useful that some insurance companies now accept images via e-mail; the reduced paper trail cuts down on claim-processing time and is an environmentally friendly option as well.
