Dental Imaging Techniques
At St. Augustine Family Dentistry, our office is equipped with a variety of state-of-the-art dental imaging tools to diagnose dental health issues and design precise dental restorations. You can expect to have x-rays taken at your first visit and at least once per year after that to monitor the health of your tooth roots, jawbone and more. Other dental imaging tools may be used depending on the particular symptoms you present or the treatments you require.
One of the most important advances in dental imaging has been the digital x-ray. Unlike its traditional film predecessor, the digital x-ray results in significantly reduced radiation exposure and is more accurate and efficient. Within minutes of taking digital x-rays, our dentist can view detailed images of your mouth on a computer monitor, make an accurate diagnosis and begin planning your treatment. With this dental imaging tool, you'll never have to wait for results.
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
