Dental Imaging

Dental imaging is utilized to analyze and learn about the presence of cavities, dental infections and oral bone structure. These advanced digital imaging tools provide sharper, more accurate images of your teeth and mouth than traditional x-rays. At Neibauer Dental Care in Waldorf, Maryland, we utilize a variety of dental imaging techniques to ensure the most thorough diagnosis for our patients. Learn more about each of the tools we use, below. 

Dental Imaging

Digital X-rays are one of the most important advancements in dentistry. The technology replaces the concept of traditional films used in conventional X-rays with advanced electronic sensors. A few benefits of the digital x-ray includes:

● It enables our dentist to make an accurate diagnosis more efficiently.

● It is less time-consuming and provides immediate results.

● It offers better imaging results, enabling our dentist to figure out abnormalities in teeth and gums.

Intraoral Camera

The intraoral camera is an advanced digital imaging tool used to take photos inside the mouth. It comes with three main options:

  • Bite-Wing X-Ray: This x-ray produces a result that incorporates the upper and lower teeth of a specific area in your mouth. It helps in detecting tooth decays, cavities or any other abnormality in the patient’s mouth.

  • Periapical X-Ray: This x-ray produces a result limited to only one tooth. It studies the details and the anatomy of that one tooth in particular. This is why this kind of intraoral camera detects even the smallest change in the patient’s dental structure.

  • Occlusal X-Ray: This intraoral x-ray focuses on the arch of the teeth. It could be either the upper jaw or the lower jaw of the patient. The camera can produce results which help study the dental structure and the developments of any procedure.
