Dental Imaging Techniques

Dental imaging is an advanced procedure that depends on the extent of radiation penetrating through the patient’s dental structures. When visiting Lake Miona Dental Care you will undergo an evaluation and testing to identify 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.

There are different types of x rays available for dental imaging. Our dentist evaluates your needs to provide you with best possible outcome. Dental imaging is a great tool to learn about the presence of cavities, dental infections, and other oral issues in a patient. Traditional x- rays generally reveal the issues in your dental structure and various other problems with your teeth.  Here are some x-ray and dental imaging techniques that Lake Miona Dental Care offers:

Digital X-rays

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 helps 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 immediately displays the image taken. This not only makes your dental appointment shorter,but also permits the dentist to view and analyze the results immediately.

Intraoral Camera

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.

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.
