Dental Imaging Brands
To detect and diagnose any type of problem, dentists use dental imaging technology. Dental Imaging is the modern dental technology used to obtain radiographies of your teeth and mouth. Dental imaging will also help monitor the progress of your treatment and your overall oral condition.
Digital X Rays
When you go to our dentist at Thomasville Road Dental Care in Tallahassee, Florida, a large part of the initial visit is usually spent taking tests and/or diagnosing any dental issues you may be experiencing. In many cases, the kind of x ray used can provide immediate results, which makes it easier for both our dentist and you to understand the problem and assess it accordingly.
There are various kinds of x rays available for dental imaging. Our dentist takes your needs in consideration to provide the best results possible. Some x-ray procedures will be more feasible than others, depending on the symptoms you have.
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.
The intraoral camera is extremely helpful in diagnosing dental conditions such as tooth decay and cracked teeth and in educating the patient. Since the intraoral camera is used in tandem with a computer screen or television monitor, your dentist can easily show you, in real-time, if you have a fractured tooth or need gum disease treatment. A picture is worth a thousand words!
Time-savings that come with the intraoral camera are especially noticeable when your dentist needs to take several images at one time. Intraoral camera images are easy to re-take, print and duplicate. Printouts can be sent to dental insurance companies to strengthen claims. In fact, these images are so useful that some insurance companies now accept images via e-mail; the reduced paper trail cuts down on claim-processing time and is an environmentally friendly option as well.
