Digital sensors use 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays, so they are safer for our patients and our staff. Digital images are also safer for the environment because they do not require the use of chemicals to develop the images.
We do panoramic imaging, which takes an image of your entire lower face. It shows whether all permanent teeth are present or if orthodontic intervention is needed. It aids in the location of the sinus cavities, should an extraction be needed, and shows the position of wisdom teeth.
Panoramic images also help us diagnose:
• cysts or tumors
• bone abnormalities sometimes associated with cancer and other systemic diseases
Intraoral cameras are small cameras that allow pictures to be taken inside the mouth. We will be able to show you on a chair-side monitor the condition of your teeth and gums. We’ll explain treatment options and together decide the treatment that is right for you.
