Advantages of Digital Radiography

  • Decreased Radiation
    Based on the type of radiograph being taken, radiation can be reduced by as much as 3 to 4 or more times as conventional.
  • Immediate Viewing and Better Quality Images 
  • Patient Education
    Digital radiographic images can be enlarged and enhanced. The larger, more detailed picture allows patients to have a better understanding of the diagnosis and their treatment recommendations

Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray equipment used to produce three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan. It is useful for cases that involve:

  • Surgical planning for wisdom teeth extractions
  • Viewing jaw joints (TMJ)
  • Accurate placement of dental implants
  • Evaluation of the jaw, sinuses, and root canals
  • Detecting, measuring, and treatment of jaw abnormalities
  • Determining bone structure and tooth orientation

One of the great things about today’s technologies—especially using an intraoral camera—is that YOU can be involved in the process of diagnosing and better understanding the health of your teeth. Simply See What Your Dentist Sees.

 

How Does It Work?

Our intraoral camera is a small handheld device that combines an extremely bright light source with a tiny, high definition camera. Our intraoral camera looks a lot like a writing pen, and when moved around inside your mouth, it gives our team the ability to see enlarged, detailed images of the surfaces of your teeth, the condition of your gums, and other valuable information about the tissues inside your mouth.  All exams using the intra-oral camera are completely sanitary, as a different disposable camera cover is used on each patient every time.
