Digital sensors capture detailed X-ray images with a fraction of the exposure found in traditional film X-rays.
Technological advancements in X-ray technology provide multiple benefits, from safety to improved treatment results.
Digital X-rays help diagnose cavities while they are tiny, often allowing for less invasive treatment. If they are caught early enough, decay may be stopped with some minor changes to your child’s homecare routine.
Using digital X-rays, our dentists can look for teeth that haven’t erupted yet, make sure your child’s jaws and teeth are developing well, and monitor whether orthodontic treatment will be needed in the future.
Today’s digital X-rays expose your child to less radiation than ever before. Lead aprons and taking X-rays only when necessary further reduce your child’s exposure.
Intraoral imaging gives you a detailed view of your mouth in pictures and videos.
Putting specific problem areas onto a computer screen lets us see with clarity and detail that’s not possible with a traditional mouth mirror. Handheld wands quickly capture the details of your teeth and gums.
In fact, even small cracks that often lead to broken teeth appear vividly with the click of a button. We can explain the need for treatment more clearly by showing you what we see in great detail.
As an added benefit, dental insurance benefits often pay more quickly with the visual proof of a digital image.
Traditionally, hours of labor in a dental laboratory were required to make a crown or bridge. With the adoption of more technology into dentistry, digital imaging continues to grow in importance.
Most restorations begin with a mold of your mouth that involves messy impression materials. With the iTero Digital Scanner, you can say goodbye to the mess.
iTero eliminates this step, replacing it with simple digital images captured with a handheld wand. The images quickly appear on a computer screen as 3D models of your teeth. Our dentists review the detailed images to make sure they meet their strict standards.
With a simple click of the mouse, the files are instantly transferred via the internet to begin the process of designing your restoration or other prescribed treatment. Reduced shipping time expedites the return of your case to our office while ensuring you receive all the advantages of digital impressions:
