Dental imaging is a foundation of oral health diagnostics. Intra-oral cameras allow your dentist to detect and monitor grooves, cracks, and pits over time and compare any changes year over year. This results in more predictable and precise diagnoses, and lets you see exactly what your dentist sees inside the mouth.
Intraoral digital scanners have eliminated the need for traditional impressions. The handheld wand allows a far more comfortable experience and takes about 1/5 the time of impressions.
Frequently Asked Questions
What should I expect from intra-oral images?
Intra-oral images are painless and take only seconds to capture. Your dentist or hygienist can take photos and scans of your entire mouth in two minutes or less.
Will I need more photos in the future?
If early signs of cavities or cracks are found on your intra-oral images, your dentist may obtain additional photos at subsequent visits for comparison. Monitoring the progression of decay and cracks can help determine whether treatment is necessary.
