We use a digital intra-oral camera device which has a tiny image capture lens on the tip of a handpiece. We can use it to view and enlarge hard-to-see areas in your mouth and examine and diagnose any problems or potential problems at extremely close range.
The camera is connected to a computer, so we're able to show you what's going on inside your mouth in real-time. It's like watching a movie of your mouth!
A digital x-ray uses a small sensor pad which is placed in your mouth instead of traditional x-ray film packets.
This method reduces radiation exposure up to 90%.
The x-ray image is immediately viewable on a display monitor, which helps us ensure that the best possible image is captured. The image can be enlarged to check for tooth decay, bone loss, and other dental problems.
