Types of Dental Imaging Techniques used by Our Dentist
When you visit our dentist, the majority of the initial visit is spent mostly on taking tests and diagnosing dental problem. In most cases, the type of X-ray used can deliver instant results, making it convenient for the dentist to identify the problem and evaluate it appropriately.
Among the most commonly used dental imaging techniques, 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.
Another common dental X-ray, the intraoral camera is used when our dentist needs to take X-rays which show the interior of your mouth as clearly as possible. In this case, the camera is largely focused on the inside of your mouth. Be assured it's a safe and efficient process, providing high-quality images.
