Techniques in Dental Imaging
We are a dental practice that uses various techniques to concisely diagnose any dental issues that you may present. We use these techniques to better offer you treatments that will treat your condition or to verify that a treatment plan has worked. Dental imaging provides our dentist with insight into your oral health and have proven to be very useful for our dental practice. The following are the dental imaging techniques we offer atComfortable Care Dental in Sarasota, Florida.
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 ease.
The X-ray machine is connected to a computer that showcases the image within minutes of being taken. This not only makes your dental appointment shorter, it also allows our dentist to view the results immediately instead of having to wait hours or days.
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
