Our Dental Imaging Guide
When visiting Dental Group of Bourbonnais, 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.
Dental imaging is an advanced procedure that depends on the extent of radiation penetrating through the patient’s dental structures. 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 issues in your dental structure and various other problems with your teeth.
Digital X-rays are one of the most important advancements in dentistry. This technology replaces conventional X-rays, reducing the use of film, harsh chemicals and waste materials used to capture the images. Unlike traditional X-rays, digital X-rays use less radiation. They also make it easier for our dentist to accurately and efficiently reach a diagnosis as their processing time is faster, providing immediate results.
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
