About our Dental Imaginga

An initial visit to our dentist usually consists of  tests to identify the cause of any prevailing dental condition. Originally, procedures during this visit took time and generally required more than one session.

Digital X-rays

A digital x-ray is one of the most important advancements in dentistry. The technology replaces the concept of traditional films used in conventional X-rays with advanced, electronic sensors.

Below are some great benefits of digital X-rays in comparison to the traditional x-ray:

  • Produces less radiation

  • Enables our dentist to make a more accurate diagnosis

  • Reduces the use of materials or harsh chemicals

  • Quicker to use and provides immediate results

  • Produces better image results, enabling our dentist to figure out abnormalities in teeth, gums or enamel instantly.

In addition to that, digital x-rays provide exceptional quality images for our dentist, who is able to adjust the image (contrast or brightness) as needed. This technique has become one of the most adopted methods of digital imaging.

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.
