Techniques in Dental Imaging

Our dental practice uses many different techniques to concisely diagnose any dental problems that you may present. We use these techniques to offer you treatments that will improve your condition or to verify that a treatment plan has worked. Dental imaging gives our dentist insight into your oral health. The following are the dental imaging techniques we offer at 21st Century Dental in Indianapolis,IN

Digital X-Rays

Among the most commonly used dental imaging techniques, digital x-rays are useful because they do not expose you to as much radiation as film x-rays often do. The imaging results help our dentist easily identify any growths or abnormalities in the gums, teeth and enamel.

The x-ray machine is connected to a computer that displays the images minutes after they are taken. This not only makes your dental appointment shorter, it also allows our dentist to view the results immediately instead of having to wait hours or days.

Intraoral Camera

Another common dental x-ray, the intraoral camera, is used when our dentist needs to take x-rays that show the interior of your mouth as clearly as possible. During this process, the camera is focused on the interior of your mouth.
