Techniques in Dental Imaging

Our dental practice utilizes various digital imaging techniques to accurately diagnose any dental issues you may be experiencing. We use these techniques to create an individualized treatment plan for your specific concerns or to verify healing. Here are some of the dental imaging techniques we offer at www.coralridgedentalarts.com in Alton, IL 

Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging

Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray that is necessary when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. Your doctor may use this technology to produce three-dimensional images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan. With cone beam CT, an x-ray beam in the shape of a cone is moved around the patient to produce a large number of images. This makes it much easier to analyze the issue and make an accurate diagnosis, allowing for successful treatment planning and completion.

Digital X-rays

Offering superior resolution with less radiation exposure, digital radiography at your Fort Lauderdale dentist is an excellent way to help diagnose oral problems. Digital X-rays not only use 90% less radiation than traditional film X-rays but are also much less time-consuming.

i-Cat 3D Imaging

Dental implants are the most sophisticated replacement for missing teeth but are often time-consuming to place. i-CAT® scans are quick, convenient, and vastly reduce the overall time it takes to complete dental implant procedures.

Intraoral Camera

An intraoral camera is a small video camera that takes an image of the outside of the gum or tooth. The intraoral camera resembles an oversized pen. While simultaneously viewing a monitor, the dentist inserts the camera into a patient's mouth and gently shifts it about so that images can be taken from a variety of angles.

iTero Dental Impressions

The iTero Intraoral Scanner allows doctors to take a 3D digital scan of a patient’s teeth and bite rather than using a viscous impression material. This digital impression scanner can be used for veneers, crowns, bridges, surface inlays, onlays, implant abutments from single units to full arches and even modeling an Invisalign treatment. Patients are also able to view before and simulated after images of their dental treatments on an in-office computer display.

KaVo DIAGNOdent Laser Cavity Finder

The KaVo DIAGNOdent laser is a revolutionary, ADA approved method for detecting cavities using sound. Using a low-density laser, hidden decay is found much the same way a metal detector locates metal objects in the ground. When the laser pinpoints a cavity, it produces a sound. Thanks to this new technology, your dentist at Coral Ridge Dental Arts can discover unseen decay long before other conventional methods and provide treatment before larger oral problems develop. The procedure is quick and pain-free.
