The standard X-ray is essential in determining any dental problems you may have; unfortunately, it may not reveal everything happening inside your mouth. We are proud to utilize an intraoral camera in our office.
An intraoral camera can project an image of your tooth onto a monitor, so you can see the problem in a magnified version. It allows you to make better, more informed decisions regarding your treatment, as you can see the same things we see. A picture really is worth a thousand words.
We offer one of the latest technological advances in dentistry with digital radiography (X-rays). A sensor instead of a film packet is placed in the mouth, and a computer generates an image in 5 seconds, as opposed to the general 4-6 minute wait for images taken on dental film. These X-rays can also be enhanced on the computer and enlarged.
Not only are they friendly to the environment, they are much safer than traditional X-rays. Digital radiographs reduce radiation exposure by up to 90% and require no chemicals to develop them.
