Our dentists choose carefully which and when radiographs are taken. We utilize Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Dental x-rays enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
We utilize intra-oral camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An intra-oral camera is a very small camera that allows our dentists to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order for us to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you!
