Our Dental Imaging Methods
X-rays generally reveal the defects in your dental structure and various other problems with your teeth. On the other hand, dental imaging is utilized to learn about the presence of cavities, dental infections and oral masses that can be either harmless or threatening. Dental imaging is also used to study bone loss in a patient.
Digital X-rays have become an advancement in many dental fields. Taking X-rays digitally is more convenient and produces more accurate, reliable results than before. This process is safer for the patients and quicker than traditional X-rays. A digital X-ray is safer because it doesn’t expose the patient to harmful X-ray radiations as the previous forms of technology. A digital X-ray is quicker because it gives results without delay, where the device is attached to a computer and shows the X-ray on screen immediately.
The intraoral camera comes with three options:
Bite-Wing X-Ray: This X-ray produces a result that incorporates the upper and lower teeth of a specific area in your mouth. This intraoral camera helps in detecting tooth decays, cavities or any other abnormality in the patient’s mouth.
Periapical X-Ray: This X-ray produces a result limited to only one tooth. It studies the details and the anatomy of that one tooth in particular. This is why this kind of intraoral camera detects even the smallest change in the patient’s dental structure.
Occlusal X-Ray: This intraoral camera focuses on the arch of the teeth. It could be either the upper jaw or the lower jaw of the patient. This camera can produce results which help study the dental structure and the developments of any procedure.
