Nine Different Types of Dental Imaging Techniques used by Dentists

When you first visit our dentist, most of it will be spent taking tests and identifying any dental issues present. Our dentist always takes your needs into consideration and provides an accurate diagnosis. Usually an X-ray is used to get immediate answers, making it convenient for our dentist to identify the problem and suggest a treatment. A number of X-rays are available for dental imaging. The type of X-ray used is based on your symptoms.

Digital X-rays

Digital X-rays are among the most common dental imaging techniques. The imaging results help our dentist easily identify any issues or growths in the gums, teeth and enamel. The X-ray machine is connected to a computer that showcases the image within minutes. This allows our dentist to view the results immediately and keeps your appointment shorter.
