Dental Imaging Techniques

During your visit to Bonita Dental Arts, you can expect your oral exam to be accompanied by x-rays or other dental imaging techniques. Dentists use imaging to find cavities, hidden dental structures, bone loss or malignant or benign masses. Learn more about the various dental imaging techniques utilized at our dental office in Bonita Springs, Florida, below.

Digital X-ray

Offering superior resolution with less radiation exposure, digital radiography at your Bonita Springs 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

Another common dental x-ray, the intraoral camera is used when your dentist needs to take x-rays which show the interior of your mouth as clearly as possible.

Dental imaging helps your dentist make a well-informed diagnosis and treatment plan catered to your unique needs. There are various types of x-rays available for dental imaging. Depending on your symptoms, some x-ray procedures will be more suitable than others.
