When visiting Dental Group of Rockford you will undergo an evaluation to identify dental issues that you may be experiencing. In most cases, the type of x-ray used can deliver instant results, making it convenient for the dentist to identify the problem and determine a treatment.
Dental imaging is an advanced procedure that depends on the extent of radiation penetrating through the patient’s dental structures. There are different types of x-rays available for dental imaging. Our dentist evaluates your needs to provide you with best possible outcome. Dental imaging is a great tool to learn about the presence of cavities, dental infections, and other oral issues in a patient. Traditional x-rays generally reveal the issues in your dental structure and various other problems with your teeth.
Among the most commonly used dental imaging techniques, digital x-rays are useful as they do not expose you to as much radiation as traditional x-rays tend to do. The imaging results help our dentist identify any growths or abnormalities in the gums, teeth and enamel with ease.
The x-ray machine is connected to a computer that showcases the image within minutes of 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.
Below are some great benefits of digital X-rays in comparison to the traditional x-ray:
Produces less radiation
Enables our dentist to make a more accurate diagnosis
Reduces the use of materials or harsh chemicals
Quicker to use and provides immediate results
Produces better image results, enabling our dentist to figure out abnormalities in teeth, gums or enamel instantly.
In addition to that, digital x-rays provide exceptional quality images for our dentist, who is able to adjust the image (contrast or brightness) as needed. This technique has become one of the most adopted methods of digital imaging.
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.Read more about Intraoral Camera
