Dental Imaging

Getting A Clearer Picture

Digital X-rays (also known as digital radiography) capture X-ray images of the teeth and jaws using electronic sensors rather than traditional X-ray film. This imaging allows practitioners to see how the teeth are positioned and identify potential abnormalities with the teeth and jaws. There are several advantages to digital X-rays that benefit both patients and orthodontists:

  • Patient exposure to radiation is decreased by 90% compared to the already low exposure of traditional X-rays
  • Orthodontists can instantly view images, allowing for faster diagnoses and better communication with patients
  • Digital X-rays don’t require film, eliminating the need for chemical processing

Digital X-rays help us safely develop the best treatment plan for your unique needs.

A Digital View With Dental Imaging

Intraoral scanners, which are used for dental imaging, allow us to get a clear and accurate picture of your teeth so that we can provide you with the best possible treatment. Intraoral scanning is an important part of restorative and preventative care, allowing doctors and patients to visualize problems with the teeth and gums. It can also help orthodontists develop custom braces, aligners, and fixed appliances to align the teeth and jaws. Our intraoral scanning services give patients the peace of mind that the treatment they receive at Gentle Care Orthodontics is tailored to their unique needs.
