Low radiation dental diagnostic tools are becoming popular these days as they are the most sought after. These procedures are also meant to be safer and more precise in evaluating the patient’s dental health. As comfort and expertise are our priorities we have chosen to use low radiation techniques in our services.
Digital Dental Radiography
Digital Dental Radiography reduces radiation exposure to 90 percent. It is also the fastest, safest and precise type of imaging available. X-ray scans aren’t completely radiation-free and won’t be required to go forward with the procedure.
Why do you need Digital Dental Radiography?
They are generally undergone routinely in order to detect dental problems at an earlier stage. It is advised to take them even before the patient starts experiencing symptoms. They are used to identify cases of tooth decay, dental injuries caused by fall or crack, cysts, or lesions.
Dental Radiography has the ability to capture dental X-ray images with precision with dedicated software that runs the tool. This technology is able to provide state-of-the-art dental images without exposing yourself to harmful radiation. Our technology is to provide the patients with the best services without having to fear the possible side-effects.
Digital X-rays help to take clear, sharp, and accurate dental images of your teeth on a screen right in front of you. There is no waiting time for the film to be developed. This allows the dentist to review the results immediately. Digital X-rays produce high definition images as compared to the conventional X- rays. This will allow the specialists to zoom into the images for proper analysis of the case and hence provide an accurate diagnosis.
CariVu is a new generation radiation-free diagnostic dental tool that is used to identify dental cavities and cracks in and outside of the tooth. CariVu consists of a small handpiece which illuminates the teeth in near-infrared light. As our dentist gently touches the tooth with CariVu, they will be able to detect cavities and cracks through the teeth.
CariVu helps to detect dental dilemmas at an earlier stage. Combined with intraoral cameras and digital X-rays, CariVu is the best instrument that will help resolve tooth problems allowing early treatment.
Advantages of CariVu
Here is why our doctors recommend CariVu as the best alternative to the traditional X-rays.
- It will help detect troublesome cavities that X-rays would not. This way, proper diagnosis can be performed without having to over-treat or under-treat the patients.
- CariVu is the best option recommended for pregnant women as this is a radiation-free alternative available for detecting tooth cavities and other dental problems.
- This is also highly recommended for children as parents would be particular in not exposing their children to harmful radiation at such an early age. Being fast and easy, children will not be hesitant about allowing doctors to use this tool on them.
- CariVu is also recommended for patients who are undergoing radiation therapy. Our dentists can formulate a diagnosis with careful measures to ensure that such patients won’t have to expose themselves to harmful radiation.
