Techniques in Dental Imaging

To better detect, diagnose, treat and monitor oral conditions and diseases, dental professionals are using digital radiography, a type of X-ray imaging that uses digital X-ray sensors to replace traditional photographic X-ray film, thus producing enhanced computer images of teeth, gums and other oral structures and conditions.

Digital X-rays

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 do. The imaging results help our dentist identify any growths or abnormalities in the gums, teeth and enamel with efficiency.

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.

iTero Dental Impressions

The iTero Intraoral Scanner allows doctors to take a 3D digital scan of a patient’s teeth and bite rather than using a viscous impression material. This digital impression scanner can be used for veneers, crowns, bridges, surface inlays, onlays, implant abutments from single units to full arches and even modeling an Invisalign treatment. Patients are also able to view before and simulated after images of their dental treatments on an in-office computer display.
