What You Should Know About Dental imaging
Your initial visit to our dentist will mostly be used for some quick tests to identify your prevailing dental condition and its cause. Previously, this was a lengthy process that required more than one visit. With advances in modern technology, our dentist has adopted the latest trends and techniques shown to be more beneficial than traditional practices.
Digital x-ray is one of the vital advancements in dentistry and has become one of the most adopted methods of digital imaging. It replaces the traditional film used in conventional x-ray with advanced electronic sensors.
Digital x-ray causes less exposure to radiation than traditional X-rays.
Enables our dentist to make an accurate diagnosis more efficiently.
Reduces the use of waste materials or harsh chemicals.
Less time-consuming and provides immediate results.
Better imaging results, enabling our dentist to instantly discover irregularities in teeth, gums or enamel.
The image can be adjusted (contrast or brightness) as needed through simple processing techniques.
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
iTero Dental Impressions
The iTero Intraoral Scanner allows doctors to take a 3D digital scan of a patient’s teeth and bite rather than using a viscous impression material. This digital impression scanner can be used for veneers, crowns, bridges, surface inlays, onlays, implant abutments from single units to full arches and even modeling an Invisalign treatment. Patients are also able to view before and simulated after images of their dental treatments on an in-office computer display.Read more about iTero Dental Impressions
