Different Techniques in Dental Imaging

To maintain healthy teeth, it's essential to have good oral and dental hygiene. It is also vital to visit our dentist, who will provide advice and instructions on how to take care of your teeth properly. During your initial visit to Bear Branch Family Dentistry in The Woodlands, Texas, you can expect your oral exam to be accompanied by x-rays or other dental imaging techniques.

Dental imaging helps our 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. Take a closer look at some of the modern dental imaging procedures we may use during your visit.

Digital X-rays

Offering superior resolution with less radiation exposure, digital radiography at your The Woodlands 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.

Intraoral Camera

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.
