Do dental X-rays stress you out? Many patients and parents worry about the radiation exposure associated with traditional film X-rays, and that’s a big reason why we don’t use them! Digital X-rays are able to create sharper images in much less time compared to film. Almost as soon as we capture them, we can show the images to you on a chairside monitor. And, the process also emits 90% LESS radiation. This means your appointments will be shorter and safer, which is a big win-win.
Cameras can be found pretty much everywhere these days, and that includes your dental office! Now, we can use a small device that fits easily into the mouth to capture close-up images of the teeth and gums. Our team can then display them on a monitor right in the treatment room. This makes it easier for us to spot potential problem areas, plus patients can actually see what we’re talking about for a change, making their appointments much more transparent and easy to understand.
CT/Cone Beam Scanner
Traditional 2D X-rays are excellent, but they can’t tell us everything when it comes to a patient’s dental anatomy. When planning a more complicated procedure like dental implant placement or root canal therapy, our CT/cone beam scanner helps us ensure a successful treatment. How so? By creating an exhaustively-detailed 3D X-ray model of the teeth, jaw, and nearby oral structures. This allows us to personalize every detail of a treatment to suit a patient’s unique needs.
