At Jennings & Larson Family Dentistry, we use advanced dental technologies to make your treatments as comfortable, precise and effective as possible. Among the technologies used in our office are digital X-rays and 3D imaging. These diagnostic tools make it possible for us to make accurate diagnoses of dental problems and to plan and perform treatments that are more closely tailored to your needs.
Digital X-rays and 3D imaging changed the way that pictures were taken of your mouth. In the past, X-rays were taken using film and required the use of chemicals to develop. With digital radiography, the images can be captured using a small digital sensor. This makes the imaging process faster and much more comfortable, reducing radiation exposure by up to 90% and allowing the captured images to be viewed almost instantaneously on a nearby monitor. This allows our dentists and team to make quick and accurate diagnoses about your dental health.
Some problems that digital imaging allows us to more easily diagnose include:
- Tooth decay
- Fractures in the teeth or in fillings
- Bone loss and infection in the tooth nerves
- TMJ disorders
- Developmental abnormalities
- Incorrect tooth root positioning
- Cysts, abscesses and tumors
- Abnormal teeth
- Dental and facial trauma
The captured images also allow our dentists to plan your treatments more precisely. X-rays are frequently used to plan and perform oral surgical procedures, implant placements, TMJ treatments, root canal therapy and orthodontic treatment.
