Our Dental Imaging Guide

The initial consultation with our dentist is mostly for evaluation, routine check-up or to identify the cause of the prevailing dental condition. Today, the type of X-ray used during the comprehensive examination can deliver instant results, making it convenient for the dentist to quickly identify the problem and determine treatment.

Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging

Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray equipment used when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. Your doctor may use this technology to produce three dimensional  images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan. With cone beam CT, an x-ray beam in the shape of a cone is moved around the patient to produce a large number of images. This makes it much easier to analyze the issue and make an accurate diagnosis, allowing for successful treatment planning and completion.

Intraoral Camera

Intraoral Cameras are used to generate images of remarkable sharpness and clarity. They have the necessary depth-of-view for both intra- and extraoral images, from full arch to macro views, delivering consistently clear, high-resolution images that our dentist can easily share with you, so you see what our dentist sees, helping you make an educated decision regarding treatment recommendations. Intraoral cameras are used for:

  • Periapical X-Rays: These X-rays produce results limited to one tooth only as it focuses on the details and the anatomy of that one tooth in particular. This kind of intraoral camera detects even the smallest changes in your dental structure.

  • Bite-Wing X-Rays: These X-rays produces images that include the upper and lower teeth of a specific area in your mouth. This intraoral camera helps detect tooth decay, cavities, or any other abnormality in your mouth.

  • Occlusal X-Rays: This intraoral camera focuses on the arch of the teeth, either on the upper jaw or the lower jaw. The images obtained help study the dental structure and the effects of any procedure.

Identifying the issue is the first step for our dentist to further decide on a suitable treatment. We have a dedicated team of professionals on board to evaluate and correct all of your dental needs.
