Digital Imaging

We use digital imaging software in our office, which allows us to take a digital picture of you and use our imaging system to predict how a particular treatment or cosmetic procedure would change the appearance of your teeth. This software is beneficial for patients who are considering cosmetic procedures but are not sure if they're ready for dramatic changes. Digital imaging also allows us to document your dental case and procedures very well. We take digital images of your face, teeth and smile to provide us with a permanent dental record and to provide a visual documentation of treatment.

Improved Diagnostic Precision:
Digital dental imaging allows for high-resolution images that provide a detailed view of the teeth, gums, and surrounding oral structures. This level of clarity is crucial for identifying dental issues such as cavities, gum disease, impacted teeth, and bone abnormalities. Dentists can zoom in, enhance, and manipulate these images to gain a better understanding of the patient's oral health.

Reduced Radiation Exposure:
One of the most significant benefits of digital dental imaging is the substantial reduction in radiation exposure compared to traditional X-ray films. Digital radiography typically requires up to 90% less radiation, making it a safer option for both patients and dental professionals.

Instant Image Capture:
With digital imaging, there is no need to wait for X-ray films to develop. Images are captured digitally and can be viewed almost immediately on a computer screen. This quick turnaround time allows dentists to discuss findings and treatment options with patients in real-time, leading to more informed decisions.

Enhanced Patient Education:
Digital images are easily shared with patients, helping them better understand their oral health conditions. Dentists can use the images to explain treatment options and demonstrate the progression of dental issues over time, leading to increased patient engagement and cooperation.
