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.
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
iTero is a scanner which helps take oral impressions for our dentist to understand the case of the patient more precisely. This scanner is quick and produces clearer images. Since this technology takes a 3D view of a patient’s mouth, it helps to create a complete dental map of the patient. This enables our dentist in diagnosis, analyzing the causes of any problems that the patient may have.
