There are many advantages of digital x-rays over traditional dental x-rays, including the ability to view the images instantly, less radiation, enhanced images to improve viewing, the images can be stored electronically for instant retrieval in the future, and we can avoid the chemicals used in the traditional developing process.
3D imaging gives our doctors optimal precision when performing a root canal or placing a dental implant, and can even allow them to see pathology that could never be detected by a visual exam or even a standard dental x-ray.
Your doctor may recommend 3D imaging when you’re considering dental implants or oral surgery. The more information your dentist has about the anatomy of your mouth before a dental implant, or any type of surgery, the better the outcome.
Intra-Oral Digital Cameras
With the use of our new intra-oral digital cameras, patients now have the ability to see exactly what our clinicians see in their mouths!
We can guide the camera around the inside of your mouth and generate a tooth-by-tooth video exam. You can view large close-ups of your teeth, gums, and surrounding tissues on the flat screen monitors located right in our treatment rooms. The images can then be stored, enlarged, and printed.
