Digital dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. At Cosmetic and Family Dentistry our team utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs.
Digital Dental Imaging
Dr. Reiner and Team chooses carefully when and which radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. It gives us the ability to enlarge and focus on very specific areas on the digital x-ray. This is not possible with conventional x-rays. With digital x-rays there is no ‘wait time’ for development the x-ray comes up on the computer screen for instantaneous viewing.
Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
Panoramic dental x-rays in contrast to traditional radiographs, a panoramic dental X-ray creates a single image of the entire mouth: the upper and lower jaws, their temporomandibular (TMJ) joints, all the teeth, the nasal area and sinuses, along with evaluating the 3rd Molars (Wisdom Teeth). This image provides a flat representation of the jaw's otherwise curved structure, making it easier to analyze each part.
