Digital Dental X-Rays

Dental X-rays have come a long way. Todays dental X-rays are safer, faster, more comfortable and more informative than the X-rays of years past. Digital X-rays, one of the latest and most advanced dental technologies, produce high-quality images of your teeth that can be viewed instantly by you and your dentist on a LCD monitor. Digital X-rays reduce radiation by up to 90% and provide exceptional diagnostic information to ensure that potential problems are caught in their earliest stages. Intraoral photography is another alternative to traditional dental X-rays. With intraoral photography, problems such as cavities, fractures and discolorations in the teeth are captured through clear and sharp photographic images that are taken with an intraoral camera.

Intraoral Camera

An intraoral camera is a small rod shaped camera that can take pictures of teeth and gums and can be displayed on an LCD screen to help visualize different problems. such as cavities, cracks, fractures, discolorations, leaking fillings, and even tissue abnormalities are captured through clear and sharp photographic images viewed instantly.

The intraoral camera is used in tandem with a computer screen or television monitor. We can easily show you, in real-time, what we see so we can discuss it together. In the case of the intraoral camera, a picture may be worth more than a thousand words!
