X-rays are utilized to learn about the presence of cavities, dental infections, and oral masses that can be either harmless or threatening. Dental imaging is also used to study bone loss in a patient.
Dental imaging is an advanced procedure that entirely depends on the extent of radiation penetrating through the patient’s dental structures. This radiation hits the film and strikes an image that helps our dentist study the cause of the problem or pain that the patient is suffering from.

Read more about CEPH X-ray
A Cephalometric X-ray, or Ceph X-ray, is a diagnostic radiograph used primarily for orthodontic treatment planning. Ceph X-Rays are extraoral, so patients do not have to insert any sort of trays, bitewings or films into the mouth. They are also safe, fast, painless and extremely effective.
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
Digital X-rays have become an advancement in many dental fields. Taking x-rays digitally is more convenient and produces more accurate, reliable results than before. This process is safer for the patients and quicker than traditional x-rays. A digital x-ray is safer because it doesn’t expose the patient to harmful x-ray radiations as the previous forms of technology. A digital x-ray is quicker because it gives results without delay, where the device is attached to a computer and shows the x-ray on screen immediately.
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

This digital impression scanner can be used for veneers, crowns, bridges, surface inlays, onlays, implant abutments from single units to full arches and even modeling an Invisalign treatment. Patients are also able to view before and simulated after images of their dental treatments on an in-office computer display.Read more about iTero Dental Impressions
