Dental Imaging Techniques
We at Manor Dental in Garden City New York offer various dental imaging techniques that are thorough and that help our dentist give an accurate diagnosis that will meet your dental needs. Please review our imaging techniques below and don’t hesitate to contact us at 516-775-2330 or talk to our dentist about any of the following methods.
Among the most commonly used dental imaging techniques, digital x-rays are useful because they do not expose you to as much radiation as film x-rays often do. The imaging results help our dentist identify any growths or abnormalities in the gums, teeth and enamel.
The x-ray machine is connected to a computer that displays the images minutes after they are taken. This not only makes your dental appointment shorter, it also allows our dentist to view the results immediately instead of having to wait hours or days to see them.
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.Read more about Intraoral Camera
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.Read more about iTero Dental Impressions
