Digital Radiography and Panoramic Imaging:
Aside from significantly lower radiation dosage digital technology allows for image enhancements. This aids the trained eye in detecting decay while it is still small. The result is a longer lasting restoration. It also results in greater patient comfort and shorter treatment times.
A complete evaluation of the oral cavity and associated sinuses is possible with a panoramic image. It is the standard of care and a valuable diagnostic tool that images the entire jaw and joints at once. The radiographs produced are also used to study orthodontic and periodontal conditions. They will disclose areas of disease concern and allow measurements for implant placement.
