Our Dental Imaging
The initial visit to the dentist is mostly for a routine check-up or evaluation to identify the cause of any dental condition. Previously this was considered to be a lengthy process that also required more than one visit. Nowadays, the type of x-ray used during the comprehensive examination may deliver instant results, making it convenient for the dentist to quickly identify the problem and determine a treatment.
There are many types of x-rays available for dental imaging. At Dental Care on East Main, our dentist performs an evaluation to provide you with the best treatment suited to your particular needs. Dental Care on East Main offers several x-ray and dental imaging tools.
Digital X-rays are one of the most important advancements in dentistry. This technology replaces conventional X-rays, reducing the use of film, harsh chemicals and waste materials used to capture the images. Unlike traditional X-rays, digital X-rays use less radiation. They also make it easier for our dentist to accurately and efficiently reach a diagnosis as their processing time is faster, providing immediate results.
The benefits of a digital x-ray include:
It creates less exposure to radiation than traditional X-rays
It enables dentists to make a diagnosis more accurately
It reduces using wasted materials and harsh chemicals
It reduces time consumption and provides immediate results
It produces instant imaging results, especially of abnormalities in teeth, gums, and enamel
Also, dentists can easily adjust the image (contrast or brightness)for greater clarity. The digital x-ray provides great convenience and has become one of the most adopted methods of digital imaging.
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
