No matter how thorough a dentist checks the mouth visually, there are still some areas that can be missed. Fortunately, there is now a way to get a clearer view of the mouth, thanks to the help of x-ray imaging. But at Lakeshore Dental Studio, instead of just the traditional approach, we give patients the advantage by offering Digital and even 3D X-rays! With these devices in hand, our patients are assured that the nooks and crannies of their mouths can be properly monitored.
Are Digital and 3D X-rays really that special?Although the traditional approach can provide an image of the mouth, once this is exposed, it can no longer be altered. But in the case of digital x-rays, there are things patients can take advantage. One is it subjects a person in a much lesser amount of radiation, which is one of the chief concerns when it comes to x-rays. The other thing is, dentists can manipulate the image taken using the software on a computer. It offers better viewability for the dentist to provide better evaluation and diagnosis of the patient’s condition.
In the case of 3-D x-rays, dentists can take precise measurements in all dimensions. What’s more is, it also gives the professional an idea on density. Meaning they can get the information about both the hard and soft tissues in the mouth.
Due to this feature, performing a dental implant procedure is easier than ever before. With the help of 3-D x-rays, there is no longer a need to make large incisions. As a result, patients are bound to experience less discomfort after the procedure. Oral surgeries can become much quicker and predictable with the help of the dentist’s good planning. Plus, it can become more comfortable even without the use of sedation.
