Digital Intraoral Radiographs
Intraoral cameras are small hand-held cameras that capture high-resolution images of single teeth or certain areas of the mouth. In addition to the use of monitoring oral conditions, intraoral cameras provide us a way to show patients what our dentists see when they look inside the mouth.
Intraoral radiographs, also known as x-rays, assist in the diagnosis of common dental conditions such as decay, infection, fractures, and bone loss. Because we use digital technology, our dentists can manipulate the images by zooming in to see greater detail.
Soft tissue lasers are beneficial in many types of gum surgeries including:
• Periodontal treatment
• Gingival sculpting
Laser dentistry can also be used in preparation for dental crowns and veneers.
Panoramic x-rays use an x-ray unit that moves around the head to capture a full mouth view of the upper and lower jaw and temporal mandibular joints. Panoramic images are used in surgical planning, bone evaluation, jaw joint diagnosis, and wisdom teeth evaluations.

The scanner allows your dentist to take a digital impression—a highly accurate, digital 3D image of the individual characteristics of your tooth surfaces and gum tissue. The iTero® scanner is all about keeping you comfortable while delivering precise imagery, without the putty-filled impression tray that makes you gag!
