Among the most commonly used dental imaging techniques, digital x-rays are useful as they do not expose you to as much radiation as film x-rays tend to do. The imaging results help our dentist identify any growths or abnormalities in the gums, teeth and enamel with ease.The x-ray machine is connected to a computer that showcases the image within minutes of being taken. This not only makes your dental appointment shorter, but it also allows our dentist to view the results immediately instead of having to wait hours or days.
Another common dental x-ray, the intraoral camera, is used when our dentist needs to take x-rays to see the interior of your mouth as clearly as possible. In this case, the camera is largely focused on the inside of your mouth
Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging
Dental cone beam tomography, also known as a Cone Beam CT, is largely used when regular facial or dental x-rays are not applicable to the dental condition being treated.

Oral cancer is usually non-fatal if detected in its early stages. This is why our dentist could recommend you get tested or screened.
