A Brief Look at Dental X-Rays

The Use of Teeth X-Rays

Dental professionals today are increasingly using digital dental radiographs (digital X-rays) to better detect, diagnose, treat, and monitor oral conditions and diseases.

Dental radiographs or digital X-rays treat, diagnose, monitor, and detect oral conditions and disease. They have been the go-to method for dentists to delve deeper into a patient’s dental health. This technology replaces the traditional photographic X-ray film, producing enhanced computer images of structures of mouth, teeth, and gums.

The Three Methods of Teeth X-Rays

Direct: Uses an electronic sensor placed in the mouth in order to record images.

Indirect: Uses an X-ray film scanner to see traditional X-rays as digital images.

Semi-indirect: A combination of a scanner and sensor to convert X-rays into a digital film.

Types  Dental Radiographs

Intraoral: This is taken inside the mouth. It’s the most common type and is used to detect cavities, as well as check the status of developing teeth and bone health. Our Hammond intraoral imaging is a step ahead in checking the status of your teeth and gums.

Extraoral: Taken from outside the teeth, but they don’t provide the same feature as intraoral x-rays. On the other hand, they are used to monitor jaw growth and development, determine potential problems between teeth, jaws and other facial bones, detect impacted teeth.

Benefits of Digital Dental Radiography

Digital X-rays can be viewed on any computer screen and are enhanced for contrast and detail, and then transmitted with to specialists without sacrificing quality.

They also reveal hidden areas of decay between the teeth or below gum disease, bone infections, cysts, abscesses or fillings and other dental and oral health issues that cannot be detected by visual examination alone.

Teeth radiographs provide early detection and treatment of dental problems that in turn save money and time. The technology also removes the chemical process of hazardous wastes, which makes them friendly to the environment.

In addition, digital x-rays have colorizing features, as well as 3-D, sharpness, zoom, and flip, and among others. Digital images of the problems detected can be transferred or enhanced in a computer screen right next to the patient’s chair.

In Sum…

Digital X-rays are easier and less time-consuming in terms of teeth examination and diagnosis. It will save the trouble for both dentist and patient, and it’s easy to record the latter’s dental files. Digital radiographs do have their limits, but it’s no denying that they have played a big role in helping dentists detect different dental and oral diseases and infections.

About Hammond LA

Don’t complete your tour of Hammond with a history lesson that you can enjoy with family or friends. Louisiana is rich in culture and history, and Hammond is one of its cities that offer a glimpse of the old days.

Here are some places in the city that you can check out and learn a thing or two how Hammond came to be.

Independence Historic District

The business district now consists of 38 structures most of which are brick buildings that date all the way back from 1913 to 1930. Dating back to 1837, the entire district has prospered due to the Italian immigrant truck farmers. Unfortunately, one of the buildings burned down in a fire in 1913. It was eventually rebuilt and has become one of the popular historic attractions in the city.

Greenlawn House

Located at 200 East Chestnut Street in Amite, Greenlawn House contains a one-story rear wing and full galleries. The house features a Victorian Renaissance Revival, with a touch of Queen Anne decorations.

According to local tradition, the house was built in the 1890s by Bolivar Edwards, a prominent lawyer. The house remained in his family until 1972.

Camp Moore

Camp Moore consists of about 450 acres of land covered mostly with woods and open fields. The place has buildings such as the Camp Moore Confederate Museum, the United Daughters of the Confederacy chapter house, and several residences. The cemetery in the area is the final resting place for Confederate soldiers who died while training at Camp Moore. That being said, it has a military significance seeing it was the training ground for about 25,000 Louisiana soldiers before entering combat during the Civil War.

Just brought my little girl here for a cleaning this morning - and she had a really good experience. This was her first time at this dental office because our previous dentist retired and moved out of state, but they did a great job of making her feel calm and relaxed, giving her a "familiar" vibe, despite being in a totally unfamiliar place.

For the past few years I've been debating a tooth restoration treatment from my dentist here, and I finally took the plunge, and they look great! The reason I ended up going for it is, what's not to like? Their services are modestly priced, and the staff is loyal and friendly to their longtime customers (aka me!)

My sister in law recommended me the dentists here because she has little kids - like me - who felt nervous about going to the dentist, and said they do a great job here of easing them into the work they do, so that they feel more comfortable and open. Glad I brought them here!
