Dental imaging is a routine aspect of comprehensive exams. At Aesthetic Dental Innovations, our dentist utilizes a variety of x-ray and imaging techniques to ensure they obtain the most thorough insight into your oral health. Take a closer look at the systems utilized at our dental office in Ft. Worth, Texas, below.
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. With cone beam tomography, our dentist can acquire a 3D image of the teeth, gums and other soft tissues, as well as the bones and the nerve pathways of the roots, to correctly locate and treat the problem at hand.
This style of dental imaging also helps identify unusual bone growth, nasal cavity issues, jaw diseases and problems in the sinus area. The images produced are usually more detailed than the ones provided by a traditional CT. Such resolution makes it easy to identify complications in the muscular structure, lymph nodes, nerves and glands in the mouth. This type of x-ray is often used when planning for in-depth surgery.
Digital x-rays are a common dental imaging tool that's replaced traditional film x-rays. This system provides quick and efficient results that allow our dentist to view the images in a matter of minutes.
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
