Dental Imaging Techniques
Dental imaging provides our dentist with insight into your oral health and have proven to be very useful for our dental practice. Our dental practice uses various techniques to accurately diagnose any dental issues that you may present. We use these techniques to offer you effective treatments that will treat your condition or to verify that a treatment plan has worked. The following are the dental imaging techniques we offer at Spring View Dental Care in Springfield Missouri.
The imaging results obtained with digital x-rays help our dentist identify any growths or abnormalities in the gums, teeth and enamel with efficiency.
The x-ray machine is connected to a computer that showcases the image within minutes of them being taken. This not only makes your dental appointment shorter, it also allows our dentist to view the results immediately instead of having to wait hours or days. Furthermore, digital x-rays do not expose you to as much radiation as film x-rays tend to do. These features have made digital x-rays one of the most commonly used dental imaging techniques.
