Nine Types of Dental Imaging Techniques

Dental imaging is a great tool to learn about the presence of cavities, dental infections, oral masses and even bone loss in a patient. Traditional x- rays generally reveal the issues in your dental structure and various other problems with your teeth.  Dental imaging is an advanced procedure that entirely depends on the extent of radiation penetrating through the patient’s dental structures.

Digital X-rays

Digital X-rays are one of the most important advancements in dentistry. This technology replaces the traditional films used in conventional X-rays. Digital X-rays help diagnose dental health issues more safely and quickly. A digital X-ray emits 90 percent less radiation than a traditional X-ray. The images from this X-ray show up immediately so our dentist can quickly determine your oral health needs.
