The Imaging Techniques We Use

Advancements in technology have offered our dental experts the ability to use faster and more precise ways to diagnose a problem, and that is no different in dental imaging. At 360 Dental, we are proud to have the technology available to accurately diagnose your dental issues and provide you with the ideal treatments available. Below are some of the technologies that we may use during your visit.

Digital X-Rays

Among the most commonly used dental imaging techniques, digital x-rays help our dentist identify any growths or abnormalities in the gums, teeth, and enamel with efficiency and ease. The x-ray machine is connected to a computer that displays the images just minutes after they are taken. This not only makes your dental appointment shorter, but also allows our dentist to view the results immediately instead of having to wait for hours or days.

360 Dental in Tulsa, Oklahoma has a team of dedicated staff who will address your dental needs.

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. 

The intraoral camera is extremely helpful in diagnosing dental conditions such as tooth decay and cracked teeth and in educating the patient. Since the intraoral camera is used in tandem with a computer screen or television monitor, your dentist can easily show you, in real-time, if you have a fractured tooth or need gum disease treatment. A picture is worth a thousand words!

Time-savings that come with the intraoral camera are especially noticeable when your dentist needs to take several images at one time. Intraoral camera images are easy to re-take, print and duplicate. Printouts can be sent to dental insurance companies to strengthen claims. In fact, these images are so useful that some insurance companies now accept images via e-mail; the reduced paper trail cuts down on claim-processing time and is an environmentally friendly option as well.
