Digital x-rays are one of the most important advancements in dental imaging, replacing the concept of traditional films used in conventional x-rays with electronic sensors. It's one of the more common imaging techniques today due to its usefulness and benefits, particularly because it does not expose you to as much radiation as film x-rays tend to do.
The x-ray machine is connected to a computer that shows the image within minutes of it being taken, resulting in exceptional, high-quality images that help our dentist easily identify any growths or irregularities in the gums, teeth and enamel. This not only makes your dental appointment shorter, it also allows our dentist to issue a faster diagnosis instead of having to wait hours or days. This is vital, especially for conditions that respond better during their early stages.
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.Read more about Intraoral Camera
