Digital X-Rays

kesler_18We offer one of the latest technological advances in dentistry with digital radiography (X-rays). A wireless sensor is placed in the mouth, and a computer generates an image in 30 seconds as opposed to the general 4-6 minute wait time for images taken on dental film. These X-rays can also be enhanced on the computer and enlarged.

Not only are they friendly to the environment, they are much safer than traditional X-rays. Digital radiographs reduce radiation exposure by 90 percent!

Diagnodent

kesler_19Did you know that half of cavities found in your teeth could go undetected by current diagnostic techniques? However, our office now offers a new diagnostic method that can more accurately define caries in teeth.

We offer a unique service that can detect caries at the earliest stage. The DIAGNOdent Laser Caries Detector is over 90 percent accurate in detecting even the smallest lesions that don’t even appear on X-rays! Early detection enables us to better preserve and protect your teeth.

The DIAGNOdent Laser Caries Detector boasts a high patient acceptance and satisfaction with its quick, simple and painless nature.

Panoramic X-Rays

kesler_20A panoramic x-ray is a complete two dimensional image of your mouth, including the jaw bone, jaw joints, teeth, nasal area and sinuses. Panoramic X-Rays are often taken during the initial visit to a new dentist. These x-rays give a good starting point, revealing past treatments, trouble areas and problems such as cysts, bone irregularities and tumors.They are painless and require only a few seconds to perform.

Panoramic x-rays give the dentist the big picture. The show the lower jaw or mandible and can reveal where clenching and grinding of teeth has occurred. They also show impacted teeth that can sometimes be deep down in the jaw bone. Another great use of the panoramic x-ray has to do with identifying problems over time. A panoramic x-ray taken once ever two or three years can show progressive problems with the entire structure of your mouth over time. This is invaluable in correct diagnosis and treatment.

Intra-oral Cameras

kesler_21The standard X-ray is essential in determining any dental problems you may have, but unfortunately, it may not reveal everything happening inside your mouth. We are proud to utilize an intraoral camera in our office.

An intraoral camera can project an image of your tooth onto a monitor, so you can see the problem in a magnified version and how we can correct the issue. It can also identify problems that may not be detected by the general means of examination, including cracks in your fillings or fractured teeth. Similar to the size and design of a dental mirror, an intraoral camera allows you to make better decisions regarding your treatment as you can see the same things we see.
