Oral X-rays are very important part of understanding your overall oral health. We use them to spot decay, detect bone level, prepare for restorative procedures, oral surgeries and much more. Gums & Smiles Family Dental utilizes digital X-rays, which are a modern advancement in radiography, which eliminates the need for uncomfortable X-ray film. They also emit less radiation and deliver detailed images immediately for more efficient treatment planning & patient education.
Intra-oral cameras have revolutionized the world of dentistry. It has made dentists more accurate in their diagnosis and patients more accepting of the treatment advised. Understanding the reason for the treatment starts with accepting the fact that there is a problem. An intraoral camera is the best tool available to dentists through which they can show live images and videos of the problem areas and educate the patient about the dental illness. Using intraoral cameras is now a standard practice, and we use it to give you a visual “tour” of your mouth on screen so you can take a close look at everything we see, helping you better understand diagnosis and treatment recommendations.
A little intra-oral device, the Isolite system has a variety of capabilities that make your patient experience more comfortable and that make our job super easier. It has a bright light that allows us to work under shadows, it has a place to rest your jaw, and it has a vacuum-like attachment that suctions out water and saliva so we can work more efficiently.
Caries are clearly revealed by the bright red color in the caries mode of device. Other
surrounding tissue is displayed in black and white, thus focusing on the carious lesions to
help a Dentist diagnose more efficiently.
Due to the wavelength emitted by the LED lights, the new plaque is highlighted by its white and grainy characteristic and old plaque is revealed a shade of yellow and orange, that helps a Dentist to explain patients very thoroughly.
