During the past three decades, dentistry has witnessed great advances in all its branches. Consequently, the need for more precise diagnostic tools, specifically imaging methods, has become mandatory. From the simple intra-oral periapical X-rays to advanced imaging techniques, like magnetic resonance imaging, cone beam computed tomography and ultrasound have also found their place in modern dentistry. Moving from analog to digital radiography has not only made the process simpler and faster, but has also made image storage, manipulation and retrieval easier. Three-dimensional imaging has made the complex craniofacial structures more accessible for examination and for the early and accurate diagnosis of conditions that range from mild to severe.
To offer our patients at Nashboro Village Family Dental, our dentist utilizes a variety of dental imaging techniques at our office in Nashville, Tennessee. Learn more about the systems and tools available, below.
Digital x-rays are one of the most important advancements in dentistry. This technology replaces conventional X-rays, reducing the use of film, harsh chemicals and waste materials used to capture the images. Unlike traditional X-rays, digital X-rays use less radiation. They also make it easier for our dentist to accurately and efficiently reach a diagnosis as their processing time is faster, providing immediate results.
Intraoral cameras are used to generate images inside the mouth with remarkable sharpness and clarity. They have the necessary depth-of-view for both intra- and extra-oral images. From full arch to macro views, they deliver consistently clear, high-resolution images that our dentist can share with you to help you make an educated decision regarding treatment recommendations.
