During your visit to Dental Care of West Melbourne, you can expect your oral exam to be accompanied by x-rays or other dental imaging techniques. Dentists use imaging to find cavities, hidden dental structures, bone loss or malignant or benign masses.
Among the most commonly used dental imaging techniques, digital x-rays do not expose you to as much radiation as film x-rays (up to 90% less). The imaging results help your dentist identify any abnormalities in the gums, teeth and enamel. Unlike film x-rays, digital x-rays yield high quality images almost instantaneously, resulting in shorter dental visits!
Another common dental x-ray, the intraoral camera, is used when your dentist needs to take x-rays which show the interior of your mouth as clearly as possible.Read more about Intraoral Camera
Dental imaging helps your dentist make a well-informed diagnosis and treatment plan catered to your unique needs. There are various types of x-rays available for dental imaging. Depending on your symptoms, some x-ray procedures will be more suitable than others.
