Digital X-rays

Digital x-ray, also known as digital radiography, is an advanced x-ray that produces an instant radiographic image on a computer. X-ray sensitive plates capture data during the examination, and this data is transferred to a computer via an intermediate cassette. Digital x-rays provide many advantages over normal x-rays. Some of the advantages of digital x-rays include shorter exposure times, improved detail detectability, real-time applications, and enhanced SNR and linearity. Due to the increased dynamic range, dentists can inspect multiple thicknesses in one shot. Digital x-ray delivers immediate feedback, and it is easy to transfer the image to patients electronically.

Digital Pan X-Ray

Better for our patients, our dentists, and the environment, our dental office uses the most advanced digital pan x-ray equipment available. Patients are exposed to 85% less radiation compared to conventional x-rays. Since there is no film processing involved, dentists can access the digital images immediately. Using digital imaging enables us to provide you with the best possible care. Digital imaging allows us to make the treatment process faster, more convenient, and more comfortable. Our dentist will examine your teeth and view instant high-quality images on the computer monitor.

Cone-Beam CT 3D

Cone beam C.T. 3D is a special type of x-ray equipment that comes in handy when the normal dental or facial x-ray is not sufficient. Our dentists use this technology to produce three-dimensional images of your teeth and other oral tissues in a single scan. It requires little to no preparation for our doctors to conduct this procedure. We will seek certain information from you before conducting this procedure. For instance, we will ask about your health history and if you are pregnant. Cone beam C.T. is different from the conventional C.T., but it produces images similar to those produced by the conventional C.T.

Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a specialized type of x-ray technology used in dentistry. It produces a 3D image of the teeth, jaw, and surrounding structures. CBCT uses a cone-shaped x-ray beam that rotates around the patient, capturing multiple images that are then reconstructed into a single 3D image.

CBCT scans are useful for a variety of dental applications, including:

  1. Dental implants: CBCT scans can provide detailed information about the density, width, and height of the jawbone, which is important for planning dental implant placement.
  2. Orthodontics: CBCT scans can help orthodontists evaluate the position and orientation of teeth, as well as assess the relationship between the teeth and the surrounding bone.
  3. Endodontics: CBCT scans can be used to diagnose and treat root canal problems, such as abscesses or fractures.
  4. TMJ disorders: CBCT scans can help diagnose and treat temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, which can cause pain and discomfort in the jaw.
  5. Oral surgery: CBCT scans can assist in planning and performing oral surgeries, such as wisdom tooth extractions and jaw reconstruction.

Overall, CBCT technology allows dentists and other oral health professionals to gather more detailed and precise information about the structures of the mouth and jaw, leading to more accurate diagnoses and treatment planning.
