Among the most commonly used dental imaging techniques, digital x-rays are useful as they do not expose you to as much radiation as film x-rays tend to do. The imaging results helps our dentist identify any growths or abnormalities in the gums, teeth and enamel with efficiency.
The x-ray machine is connected to a computer that showcases the image within minutes of them being 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.
Another common dental x-ray, the intraoral camera, is used when our dentist needs to take x-rays which show the interior of your mouth as clearly as possible. In this case, the camera is largely focused on the inside of your mouth.
