Dental Imaging Techniques
Our dental practice uses various dental imaging techniques, such as x-rays, to accurately diagnose any dental issues you may have.

They're also valuable in determining whether a particular procedure worked or if further treatment is required. Dental imaging provides our dentist with insight into your oral health is a valuable tool in our dental practice.
Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging
Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray that is necessary when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. Your doctor may use this technology to produce three-dimensional images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan. With cone beam CT, an x-ray beam in the shape of a cone is moved around the patient to produce a large number of images. This makes it much easier to analyze the issue and make an accurate diagnosis, allowing for successful treatment planning and completion.Read more about Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging

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
