Digital X-Rays & Intraoral Camera
Digital X-rays Using the most advanced dental technology is just as important as staying up to date on the latest treatment techniques. Because our practice is dedicated to providing you with the safest and most convenient treatment options available, we utilize advanced digital X-ray technology and digital imaging in our office
Digital X-rays provide several advanced imaging options designed to save time, provide clearer dental photos, and expose patients to less radiation than traditional X-ray technology.
Digital imaging is an extremely important and innovative tool in dentistry. This method of imaging differs from traditional dental X-rays primarily through the benefits it provides for both the patients and the providers. Digital imaging makes your visit not just safer, but more comfortable as well!
The process is much faster and more comfortable than traditional X-rays. To ease the scheduling commitment of visiting the dentist, it also saves our patients a lot of time with instant images that allow for shorter appointments and waiting times. Digital imaging even makes our jobs a little easier by helping us explain and demonstrate treatment plans for our patients!
Digital imaging protects the health of the environment as well by eliminating the need for chemical waste usually produced during the process of developing film.
You know the importance of prevention when it comes to your dental health, and we’re always looking for new, improved ways to help you achieve a healthy smile for life. While X-rays provide valuable information, they don’t give a complete view of everything going on inside your mouth.
With the use of an intraoral camera, we can see every aspect of your teeth and mouth with incredible detail to uncover cracked teeth, plaque deposits, cavities next to fillings, and excessive wear. When we can discover oral problems early on, your treatment is much less invasive and much more cost effective.
Our intraoral camera is small: about the size of the mirror we use during your regular hygiene appointments. You probably wouldn’t even notice we’re using it except that with the intraoral camera, you have the opportunity to see everything we see on a monitor.
This is a great tool to help you become more informed about your dental health, because it gives you a clear understanding of your teeth’s condition, and it allows you to make a more informed decision regarding your treatment options.
