Dental Imaging

Digital radiography is an important new advancement seen in dentistry that reduces the exposure to radiation by up to 80 percent compared to film-based systems. Increasing diagnostic proficiency and reducing the use of harsh chemicals and other waste materials associated with traditional radiography are added conveniences. At My Dentist in Fort Smith, Arkansas, we utilize a variety of modern digital imaging systems to provide the most effective diagnosis.

Digital X-rays

Digital x-rays are a dental imaging tool that helps our dentist identify any abnormalities in the teeth and gums. With less exposure to radiation than traditional film x-rays, the digital x-ray immediately displays images onto our dentist’s computer screen. This process also allows our dentist to show visual demonstrations while reviewing and explaining the results.

Intraoral Camera

An intraoral camera is used to generate images of remarkable sharpness and clarity. It has the necessary depth-of-view for both intra- and extraoral images, making it an all-in-one solution for dental digital photography still shots and videos. From full arch to macro views, an intraoral camera delivers consistently clear, high-resolution dental digital photography images that our dentist can easily share with you so that you see what our dentist sees, helping you make an educated decision regarding treatment recommendations.

Advantages of the intraoral camera:

  • Ergonomically designed handpieces to obtain high-quality images

  • Single button capturing features, unlike other techniques which require clicking on computer screens

  • A handpiece that can be plugged into a USB port to export images

  • More visibility for patients, making them more responsive to recommended treatments

  • A time-saving technique that takes multiple images at once
