Dental Imaging Solutions

Dental Imaging is the modern dental technology used to obtain radiographies of your teeth and mouth. This technology also helps monitor the progress of your treatment and your overall oral condition. There are different types of x-rays available for dental imaging. At Mountain Crest Dental in Mesa, Arizona, our dentist offers various dental imaging techniques which help detect and diagnose any dental health issue that you may be experiencing. Some x-ray techniques are more suitable than others based on the symptoms you have.

CEPH X-ray

A Cephalometric X-ray, or Ceph X-ray, is a diagnostic radiograph used primarily for orthodontic treatment planning. Ceph X-Rays are extraoral, so patients do not have to insert any sort of trays, bitewings or films into the mouth. They are also safe, fast, painless and extremely effective.

Digital X-rays

Among the most commonly used dental imaging techniques, digital x-rays do not expose you to as much radiation as film x-rays (up to 90% less). The imaging results help your dentist identify any abnormalities in the gums, teeth and enamel. Unlike film x-rays, digital x-rays yield high quality images almost instantaneously, resulting in shorter dental visits!

Intraoral Camera

An intraoral camera is a small video camera that takes an image of the outside of the gum or tooth. The intraoral camera resembles an oversized pen. While simultaneously viewing a monitor, the dentist inserts the camera into a patient's mouth and gently shifts it about so that images can be taken from a variety of angles.

iTero Dental Impressions

The iTero Intraoral Scanner allows doctors to take a 3D digital scan of a patient’s teeth and bite rather than using a viscous impression material. This digital impression scanner can be used for veneers, crowns, bridges, surface inlays, onlays, implant abutments from single units to full arches and even modeling an Invisalign treatment. Patients are also able to view before and simulated after images of their dental treatments on an in-office computer display.
