All You Need to Know About Dental Imaging

With the progress in modern technology, our dentist is embracing new dental imaging tools and techniques that are considered to be more effective and efficient than their traditional counterparts.

Digital X-rays

Digital x-rays are one of the most important advancements in the field. The technology replaces the concept of traditional films used in conventional x-rays with advanced electronic sensors. This digital imaging technique provides exceptional high-quality images using less radiation. The image can be adjusted (contrast or brightness) as needed by using some simple processing techniques. This has become one of the most adopted methods of digital imaging.

Benefits:

  • Digital x-rays cause less exposure to radiation.

  • Enables our dentist to make an accurate diagnosis more efficiently.

  • Reduces the use of waste materials and harsh chemicals.

  • Less time-consuming and provides immediate results.

  • Better imaging results enable our dentist to instantly notice irregularities in teeth, gums or enamel.

Intraoral Camera

An intraoral camera is a convenient dental imaging tool that provides clear images of the interior of the mouth. It offers the ability to obtain images from different angles and this translates to less room for mistakes or misdiagnosis. There are three different types of intraoral x-rays possible: the Occlusal, the Periapical and the BiteWing.


Benefits:

  • Ergonomically designed hand-pieces to obtain high-quality images.

  • Single-button capturing ability; no need to click on a computer screen like other tools.

  • A hand-piece can be plugged into a USB port to export images.

  • More visibility for our patients to see the images and reasoning behind a recommended treatment.

  • Time-saving technique helps in capture multiple images at once
