Dental Imaging

Digital X-ray

Offering superior resolution with less radiation exposure, digital radiography at your Tamarac dentist is an excellent way to help diagnose oral problems. Digital X-rays not only use 90% less radiation than traditional film X-rays but are also much less time-consuming.

 Using a small radiographic camera that is only slightly larger than a pen, we capture images of each tooth. This technology eliminates the need for developing or chemical processing of the images. Instead, they appear instantly on a computer screen as each scan is complete. By shifting the angle of the imaging wand only slightly, the dentist can capture every surface of every tooth.

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. 

The intraoral camera is extremely helpful in diagnosing dental conditions such as tooth decay and cracked teeth and in educating the patient. Since the intraoral camera is used in tandem with a computer screen or television monitor, your dentist can easily show you, in real-time, if you have a fractured tooth or need gum disease treatment. A picture is worth a thousand words!

Time-savings that come with the intraoral camera are especially noticeable when your dentist needs to take several images at one time. Intraoral camera images are easy to re-take, print and duplicate. Printouts can be sent to dental insurance companies to strengthen claims. In fact, these images are so useful that some insurance companies now accept images via e-mail; the reduced paper trail cuts down on claim-processing time and is an environmentally friendly option as well.

Endodontic Microscopes

In endodontics, accurate treatment is not only dependent on the skills and knowledge of the dentist but also on clear, detailed visualization of the surgical field. As the outcome of an endodontic treatment is influenced by many factors that are not visible to the naked eye (such as additional root canals or anatomical variations), the high magnification and illumination provided by an endodontic microscope have become indispensable for both diagnosis and therapy. Today, it is widely agreed that the use of dental microscopes can provide significant visualization benefits at all stages of endodontic treatment.

The benefits of utilizing an endodontic microscope include:

  • Improved visualization, magnification, and illumination of the root and tooth structures
  • Improved diagnosis 
  • Increased precision and predictability in procedures
  • Improved manipulation of tissues
  • More thorough cleansing of root canal systems
