Dental Imaging Guidelines
To detect and diagnose any type of problem, dentists use dental imaging technology. Dental imaging is a type of technology used to obtain radiographs of your teeth and mouth. This technology also helps monitor the progress of your treatment and your overall oral condition.
Our dentist at Master's Hand Dental evaluates your needs to provide you with the most optimal possible outcome. 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. With us, you can experience professional care with fast and efficient procedures. Learn about the vast range of dental imaging techniques utilized at our office in Allen, Texas.
Read more about CEPH X-ray
A Cephalometric X-ray, or Ceph X-ray, is a diagnostic radiograph used primarily for orthodontic treatment planning. Ceph X-Rays are extraoral, so patients do not have to insert any sort of trays, bitewings or films into the mouth. They are also safe, fast, painless and extremely effective.
Among the most commonly used dental imaging techniques, digital x-rays are useful as they do not expose patients to as much radiation as film x-rays tend to do. The imaging results help our dentist identify any growths or abnormalities in the gums, teeth and enamel with efficiency.
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
iTero Dental Impressions
The iTero Intraoral Scanner allows doctors to take a 3D digital scan of a patient’s teeth and bite rather than using a viscous impression material. This digital impression scanner can be used for veneers, crowns, bridges, surface inlays, onlays, implant abutments from single units to full arches and even modeling an Invisalign treatment. Patients are also able to view before and simulated after images of their dental treatments on an in-office computer display.Read more about iTero Dental Impressions
