This is one of the most commonly used dental imaging techniques today; 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 abnormalities 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 to diagnose you. This can be crucial for certain conditions that require treatment in a timely manner in order to be effective.
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
