Our Dental Imaging

X-rays generally reveal defects in your dental structure and various other problems with your teeth. On the other hand, dental imaging is utilized to learn about the presence of cavities, dental infections and oral masses that can be either harmless or threatening. Dental imaging is also used to study bone loss in a patient.

CEPH X-ray

This particular x-ray also gives a comprehensive look at a patient’s dental structure, bones and jaw placements, and only takes a few minutes to develop. The main reason to use this kind of x-ray is to predict the consequences of the procedure or the treatment suggested by our dentist. The CEPH x-ray helps our dentist select the best course of action for the patient.

Digital X-rays

Offering superior resolution with less radiation exposure, digital radiography at your O'Fallon 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.

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.
