Intraoral Digital X-Ray Sensors
Digital x-rays are quickly becoming adopted by a large percentage of the dental industry. A digital x-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allow the dentist to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy. As a benefit to the patient, the digital x-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version of the x-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind.
Intraoral Digital Camera
The intraoral camera is an amazing diagnostic tool for viewing different angles in the mouth that we would not have been able to just a few years ago. The camera gives us the ability to view the entire mouth on a monitor so that we can get a closer look at any potential issues or problems that may arise. In addition, the patient will have the ability to see for themselves first hand the same images we are seeing. These digital images are also excellent for gaining procedure acceptance from insurance companies.
Digital Panoramic Radiograph (X-ray)
This probably doesn’t mean much to you, but it is a giant step forward in providing you excellent care. A panoramic radiograph (x-ray) gives incredibly important information as to the health, development and position of different structures in your mouth and jaws. A digital panoramic x-ray can show these areas in such detail that, should a problem start, we can see it in very early stages. It will show abnormal growths such as cysts, impacted (unerupted) teeth, bone health, changes in the jaw joint, and in some cases, even show calcified areas in the carotid arteries!
All this and the image is formed in seconds with a fraction of the x-ray exposure that traditional film-based machines produced.
Endodontics, more commonly known as root canal, is a procedure where the roots or nerves of the tooth are removed. This is often due to the fact that they are infected and the tooth is causing pain.
Rotary Endodontics is a way of performing the root canal utilizing a specific electrical handpiece. This tool often makes the process faster and allows the dentist to perform the process with greater ease.
