Dental Treatment in MackayDigital x-rays

X-rays are a normal part of gathering data for dental treatment. They help to give a deeper picture of what is going on. Advances in technology now mean that these can be taken digitally with very low exposure to radiation and a high degree of accuracy. The data that is collected can easily be manipulated to help with treatment planning. It also, in conjunction with other programmes, often means that someone can see the course of their treatment and the results that they can expect.

Digital x-rays improve our ability to diagnose dental issues in the early stages. This often helps us to offer you treatment that means that you can avoid extensive work later. This is much better for your teeth and for your budget.

Intra-oral cameras

At Northern Beaches Dental, we know that one of the best ways to make some patients feel more comfortable with their dental treatment is to get them as involved as possible. One of the reasons why some people feel vulnerable during dental procedures is because they don’t know what is going on. Intra-oral cameras change all that because they allow us to show our patients what is going on. This is useful for educating about dental hygiene as well as helping them make decisions about future treatment.

Intra-oral cameras are also great for improving record keeping. This helps to provide better care and treatment plans.
