Intraoral Camera

Images from a high definition intraoral camera can show tooth decay, visible tooth cracks/craze lines, leaky/defective old fillings/crowns, gum health/disease and several other conditions in the oral cavity. These images enhance the ability of the patient to view these conditions and make an informed decision about his/her own treatment. This allows the patients to participate in their own treatment and positively affect treatment outcome.

The intraoral cameras have advanced lenses placed inside a small head that conveniently takes high definition images in the mouth. These images are conveniently taken during a comprehensive visit exam within 1-2 minutes. Pre and post operative images can also be compared to see the treatment outcomes.

Digital Radiographs

Digital radiography is a type of X-ray imaging that uses digital X-ray sensors to replace traditional photographic X-ray film, producing enhanced computer images of teeth, gums, and other oral structures and conditions. There are several advantages of using digital radiographs.

  • Digital sensors are more sensitive to X-radiation and require 50 to 80 percent less radiation than film to produce a better quality high def image. This technology adheres to the ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) principle, which promotes radiation safety.
  • Digital radiography offers high def images that can reveal small hidden areas of decay between teeth or below existing restorations (fillings), bone infections, gum (periodontal) disease, abscesses or cysts, developmental abnormalities and tumors that cannot be detected with only a visual dental examination.
  • Digital imaging software features like contrasting, colorizing, 3-D, sharpness, flip, zoom, etc. better assist in detection and interpretation, which in turn assist in diagnosis and patient education. Digital images of problem areas can be transferred and enhanced on a computer screen next to the patient’s chair.
  • Digital radiographs can be viewed instantly on any computer screen, manipulated to enhance contrast and detail, and transmitted electronically to specialists/other dentists without quality loss.
  • Early detection and treatment of dental problems can save time, money and discomfort.
  • Dental digital radiographs eliminate chemical processing and disposal of hazardous wastes and lead foil, thereby presenting a “greener” and eco-friendly alternative.
  • Digital dental images can be stored easily in electronic patient records and, sent quickly electronically to insurance companies, referring dentists or consultants, often eliminating or reducing treatment disruption and leading to faster dental insurance reimbursements.
