Posted on 6/8/2020 by Clackamas Oral Surgery Office
The technology, which is used to give detailed and critical images of our oral cavity, teeth and gums, jaw, and all other areas surrounding our mouth is nothing short of amazing. Even though this method of internal imaging has been in use for several decades now, the improvements and advancements in the field continue to make it an incredible, up to date means of getting a better look at the numerous things which could be causing the various oral health issues that our friends and patients have to deal with. And of the many different types of X-rays and other internal scanning equipment available, the versatility and specialization that each of them provides all help to do their part when trying to pinpoint a particularly difficult to diagnose problem. Here are some of the examples of today's imaging machinery:
Modern Generation X-rays
The current lines of these machines are the most advanced and highly developed in the history of radiation imagery. The details and depth of investigation are nearly limitless and make the old X-ray machines of the 1970s and 80s look like something cavemen would have used in the early days of dental practice.
Digital Scans and Similar Methods
And with the onset of digital imagery and other similar technologies, these already clear and distinct scans can now be magnified and amplified on a computer to home in on the exact location or specific item that our oral health professional wants to focus in on. This greatly increases accuracy in diagnosis and treatment strategies.
