At Audubon Dental & Implant Center in Lexington, Kentucky, we use various techniques to concisely diagnose any dental issues that may be present. Dental imaging provides our dentist with insight into your oral health and has proven to be very useful in the creation of treatment plans. Below, you'll find the dental imaging techniques available at our dental office.
Among the most commonly used dental imaging techniques, digital x-rays are useful as they do not expose patients to as much radiation as film x-rays tend to do. The imaging results helps our dentist identify any growths or abnormalities in the gums, teeth and enamel with efficiency.
To capture these insights, the x-ray machine is connected to a computer that showcases the images within minutes of them being taken. This quick turnaround not only makes your dental appointment shorter, it also allows our dentist to view the results immediately instead of having to wait hours or days.
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.Read more about Intraoral Camera
