One of the modern advances at Northside Dental and Implant Centre is the use of digital radiographs. Digital radiography utilises digital x-ray sensors instead of traditional photographic x-ray film, to produce enhanced computer images of teeth and their supporting structures.
Digital radiographs produce immediate results with less radiation that are able to be computer enhanced.
Cone Beam 3-Dimensional Imaging
3-Dimensional scanning is a necessary part of modern dental practice. Cone Beam 3 dimensional imaging produces a virtual 3D image of the mouth or skull which can be rotated and viewed in any direction. Three dimensional scanning greatly improved treatment planning, particularly surgical planning, as all surrounding vital structures can be safely viewed and located.
Applications of Cone Beam Imaging:
- Wisdom Teeth assessment
- Dental Implant surgical planning
- Planning for jaw surgery
- Jaw cyst and lesions assessment
- Root canal therapy
- Gum assessment
OPG is another advanced type of X-Ray, which allows the dentist to have a panoramic view of all your teeth in one film.
Applications of OPG Radiographs:
- Overall occlusal assessment of the dental arches
- Initial Implant planning
- Gum health assessment
- Third molar assessment
- Patients with overactive gag reflexes
