What You Need to Know About Dental Imaging
X-rays happen to be one of the quickest methods to receiving quick, effective results. Thanks to technological progress, our office offers a variety of tools and techniques that are considered to be more effective and efficient than traditional counterparts. With these tools, our team is able to diagnose and treat any irregular symptoms or oral discomfort you may be experiencing in a timely manner.
Digital x-rays assist our dentist in identifying any growths or abnormalities in your gums and teeth. This method of dental imaging contains less exposure to radiation than traditional film x-rays, as they are completely safe. Digital x-rays immediately show images to our dental team in a matter of seconds, which are then used for analysis and diagnosis.
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
iTero Dental Impressions
The iTero Intraoral Scanner allows doctors to take a 3D digital scan of a patient’s teeth and bite rather than using a viscous impression material. This digital impression scanner can be used for veneers, crowns, bridges, surface inlays, onlays, implant abutments from single units to full arches and even modeling an Invisalign treatment. Patients are also able to view before and simulated after images of their dental treatments on an in-office computer display.Read more about iTero Dental Impressions
