Discover the Benefits of Dental Imaging

In your first visit to our dentist, our team will be taking tests and diagnosing dental problems that you might be experiencing. In most cases, x-rays can deliver instant results, making it easier for the dentist to identify the problem and evaluate it appropriately.  

Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging

Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray that is necessary 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.

Digital X-rays

Among the most 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 help our dentist identify any growths or irregularities 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 needing to wait hours or days. This can be of vital importance if you have a condition that requires timely intervention.

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.
