Panoramic Digital X-Rays
Panoramic X-rays allow our team to have a clear view of the underlying dental structures of patients’ teeth. These images are an essential part of diagnosis and treatment planning, but traditional x-rays were difficult to capture, develop, and view. That’s why we utilize digital x-rays to offer higher-definition images for earlier diagnosis and more precise treatment planning. Plus, these images are instantly available on our chairside computer monitors, and they can be quickly and easily stored and transferred via computer.

It can be very hard for a person to understand what a dentist is seeing as they are taking care of them. Conditions such as tooth decay and gum disease may be very subtle and only detectable to a trained eye. An intraoral camera can help a patient see what their dentist is seeing. It is a pen-sized camera that not only fits easily in the mouth, but also displays the image on a chairside screen. This helps communication between doctor and patient, which can lead to better understanding and care.
