With the advancement of technology in dentistry, our dentist at Neibauer Dental Care has adopted new dental imaging techniques that are more efficient in helping diagnose dental issues. During your visit to our Stafford, Virginia, office, you will learn of several dental imaging tools used in our office to take sharper, more accurate images of the teeth and mouth during our dental procedures. Learn about each of these, below.
Offering superior resolution with less radiation exposure, digital radiography at your Stafford 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.Read more about Digital X-ray
The intraoral camera is a digital imaging tool used to take precise images inside of the mouth, enabling the dentist to better see and analyze areas of the mouth hidden to the naked eye.
