These small, pen-sized cameras offer intense image quality and zoom abilities. This allows us to get the closest possible images of any trouble spots in your mouth, making diagnosis more precise and accurate. Additionally, the patient can see the images, which is a terrific way for you to be involved with what’s going on and to better participate in your treatment plan.
Digital X-rays have a lot of advantages over conventional X-rays. Not only do they use up to 90% less radiation, but they’re faster and more accurate, and patients typically report a better and more comfortable experience. A small sensor takes images of your mouth and sends them to the computer. These digital images are detailed and exact, providing the best possible basis for diagnosis.
Cone Beam CT scan machine
We see your teeth and mouth 3D with Cone Beam CT (CBCT). Would you expect an architect to design your house with a ruler slider? Would you write a book on a typewriter? Never. We are a digital society. Digital x-rays are safer with less radiation. They are instantly developed and are much better quality than film x-rays. Cone Beam CT x-rays allow us to see the entire head in 360 degrees with 1/50th the radiation of the first generation of machines. The CBCT x-ray is used for a more detailed diagnosis of treatment planning for implants and wisdom teeth surgeries.
A panorex is a piece of imaging machinery in that it is capable of identifying many issues and structures that a normal x-ray is not. It allows us to see potential problems and ensure that everything is functioning as it should be. The panorex can view specific structural problems, infections or asymmetry, among many others.
