Everything You Need to Know About the Dental Imaging Techniques

Dental Imaging is a progressive form of X-rays used for diagnosing dental issues. X-rays typically uncover flaws in your teeth's structure and other dental problems. Dental imaging is used for studying cavities, dental infections, oral masses and bone loss.

Digital X-rays

Among the most commonly used dental imaging techniques, digital X-rays are useful as they do not expose you to as much radiation as film X-rays tend to do. The imaging results help our dentist identify any growths or abnormalities in the gums, teeth and enamel with efficiency.

Intraoral Camera

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.
