What You Should Know About Dental Imaging
Your initial visit to our dentist at Sumter Dental Care will most likely consist of tests to identify the cause of any prevailing dental condition. Originally, procedures during this visit took time and required more than one session. But with the advancement of technology in dentistry, our team has adopted techniques that are more efficient in helping diagnose many dental issues.
When it comes to dental imaging, modern-day techniques have enabled us to obtain better and faster results. Learn more about the various tools and systems we utilize for imaging at our North Port, Florida, office, below.
A digital x-ray is one of the most important advancements in dentistry. The technology replaces the concept of traditional films used in conventional X-rays with advanced, electronic sensors. Its advantages include high-quality images and precise diagnoses.
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
