Our Dental Imaging
X-rays generally reveal the defects in your dental structure and various other problems with your teeth. Dental imaging is also utilized to learn about the presence of cavities, dental infections, and oral masses that can be either harmless or threatening. Dental imaging is also used to study bone loss in a patient.
Among the most commonly used dental imaging techniques, Digital X-Rays are especially valuable because they don't expose you to as much radiation as film X-Rays. The resulting images aid our dentist in identifying any growths or abnormalities in the gums, teeth and enamel with efficiency.
The Digital X-Ray machine is connected to a computer that displays the image minutes after it is taken. This process is not only convenient, but it also allows our dentist to view the results immediately instead of having to wait hours or days.Read more about Digital X-Rays
The intraoral camera comes with three options:
Bite-Wing X-Ray: This x-ray produces a result that incorporates the upper and lower teeth of a specific area in your mouth. This intraoral camera helps in detecting tooth decays, cavities or any other abnormality in the patient’s mouth.
Periapical X-Ray: This x-ray produces a result limited to only one tooth. It studies the details and the anatomy of that one tooth in particular. This is why this kind of intraoral camera detects even the smallest change in the patient’s dental structure.
Occlusal X-Ray: This intraoral camera focuses on the arch of the teeth. It could be either the upper jaw or the lower jaw of the patient. This camera can produce results which help study the dental structure and the developments of any procedure.
