Though it surfaced back in the mid-1980s, we’re still thrilled to use digital x-ray technology. Benefits include quick and convenient imaging while you’re comfortable in the dental chair, crystal-clear details that make for more accurate diagnosis and treatment, and reduced exposure to radiation.
Intraoral cameras are another invention we’re grateful for. These pen-sized wands display full-color photos that can be magnified up to 30 times, aiding the detection of gum disease, cavities, and early stage oral cancer. These images also show you how much your oral hygiene habits are paying off!
