Types of Dental Imaging Techniques
There are different types of X-ray techniques available for dental imaging. When visiting our dentist, the visit will consist of testing and evaluation of dental issues that you may be experiencing. In most cases, the type of X-ray used can deliver instant results, making it convenient for the dentist to identify the problem and determine a treatment. Our dentist will evaluate your needs to provide you with best possible outcome. Few X-ray techniques are more adequate than others based on the symptoms you have.

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
iTero Dental Impressions
The iTero Intraoral Scanner allows doctors to take a 3D digital scan of a patient’s teeth and bite rather than using a viscous impression material. 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
