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.
Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging
Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray equipment used when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. Your doctor may use this technology to produce three dimensional images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan. With cone beam CT, an x-ray beam in the shape of a cone is moved around the patient to produce a large number of images. This makes it much easier to analyze the issue and make an accurate diagnosis, allowing for successful treatment planning and completion.Read more about Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging
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 device about the size of a pen. It allows our dentist to get a closer look at the inside of your mouth and places that may be harder to see. This device can also be used to quickly and easily share those images with you. Our dentist uses the intraoral camera to take pictures inside your mouth before a procedure begins and after it is completed, allowing him to see the changes in your teeth.Read more about Intraoral Camera
