Diagnostic X-Ray, Digital Radiology and Intra Oral Camera
Our office is equipped with the latest digital radiology equipment. Digital radiography exposes dental patients to much less radiation. In fact, digital X-rays use up to 90 percent less radiation than traditional film X-rays. While conventional dental X-rays are relatively safe, digital radiography is an excellent option for those who take X-rays on a regular basis or for those who are concerned about radiation.
The intraoral camera is a revolutionary diagnostic dental tool allowing us to more clearly identify potential problems within the mouth early on. The tiny intraoral camera can be inserted into a patient’s mouth, taking pictures of the teeth and displaying the images onto a computer screen. Using the intraoral camera saves time and makes problems easily visible to both patient and doctor. Patients can view the areas we will be working on, making the need for procedures easier to understand. The accompanying software also provides clear and accurate data so that the best treatment options can be selected.
