The Dental Imaging Techniques We Use
Advancements in technology have offered experts the ability to use faster and more precise ways to diagnose a problem, and that is no different in dental imaging. We, at Deer Creek Family Dental Care, are proud to have the technology available to accurately diagnose your dental issues and have the assurance that we need to provide you with the ideal treatments available. Below are some of the technology that we may use during your visit.
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 helps our dentist identify any growths or abnormalities in the gums, teeth and enamel with efficiency.
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 having to wait hours or days.
An intraoral camera is a small video camera that takes an image of the outside of the gum or tooth. The intraoral camera resembles an oversized pen. While simultaneously viewing a monitor, the dentist inserts the camera into a patient's mouth and gently shifts it about so that images can be taken from a variety of angles.Read more about Intraoral Camera
