Digital radiographs are a technological advancement that results in less exposure to radiation for our patients and an almost instantaneous picture for our dentists. Unlike traditional, film-based x-rays, digital x-rays often show more detail and can be archived in our system for future reference and comparison. You will appreciate a more comfortable visit with less waiting and quicker treatment.
Cone Beam 3D Imaging
Understanding the unique composition of your smile is vital to a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. Enjoy the latest digital x-ray technology at Bloomington Modern Dentistry in Cone Beam 3D Imaging. Unlike flat, two-dimensional x-rays, Cone Beam images provide a 3D digital replica of the bones and tissue of your face, teeth, jaw and head. Your computerized image is easily manipulated, allowing your dental team to zoom on specific areas, view your scan from various angles and ultimately understand the complete makeup of your smile. This understanding is extremely useful when your Bloomington Modern Dentistry team is planning dental implant treatments, as well as many other restorative and cosmetic dental treatments. Best of all, your Cone Beam scan is painless, takes only 10 seconds and safely operates with a lower dose of radiation than a traditional CT scan. The imaging system’s scanner rotates around your head one complete circle. Enjoy a truly customized treatment plan based on your exact dental needs!
An intraoral camera lets you see inside your mouth during both treatment planning and dental procedures. Our intraoral camera displays your teeth on a video screen, allowing your dentist to walk you through your proposed treatment. The use of this camera allows us to work with you as a team to meet your dental care goals. We are happy to answer any questions you may have and discuss your treatment options with you. We want you to picture how your appearance will improve with dental care, giving you all the more reason to smile.
Digital photography creates instant images to use for cosmetic imaging or to keep on file to track your progress. Digital images can be saved electronically and are more efficient than traditional photographs that show less detail and must be taken off-site for development.
