Intraoral Definition and Its Uses
Considered to be the most common X-ray method in the dentistry world, intraoral imaging derives from the image receptor inside the mouth. It’s also used to diagnose caries, teeth inflammation, endodontic file location, and among others.
The intraoral camera resembles that of a pen and allows the dentist to see enlarged or detailed images of teeth, gums, and cavities that cannot be seen by a naked eye. Such a method doesn’t cause any discomfort or pain to the patient. It captures images of tarnished fillings, bleeding gums, plaque, and other forms of teeth problems.
Types of Digital Intraoral Imaging for Teeth
There are two types of intraoral imaging method that work well for patients with various dental needs. Your local dentist might choose either of the two depending on your teeth’s current situation and health.
Bitewing X-Rays: The patient bites down on the film and shows details of the upper and lower teeth. Each bitewing showcases a tooth from its own crown or top to about the level of the supporting bone. They are used to detect decay between teeth, as well as changes in bone density caused by gum disease. Dentists use them to determine dental crowns and other forms of restorations.
Periapical or Limited X-Rays: Show the entire tooth from the crown down the root tips and supporting bone located either the upper or lower jaw. Unlike their bitewing counterpart, periapical x-rays are used to detect root and bone structure issues. The methods allow specialists to see bone loss around each tooth and treat certain dental conditions such as advanced gum disease, lesions, and periodontitis.
The Benefits of Intraoral Imaging
Contrast and spatial resolution: Digital X-rays, in general, can be enhanced, colorized or sharpened for maximum quality, allowing both dentist and patient see what’s going on inside the latter’s teeth. This particular method is more advanced since some areas of the teeth cannot be seen with visual examination alone. Such technology greatly assists dentists around the world.
Saves time: Digital intraoral imaging also saves time for both the part of the dentist and patient. The images can be transferred into a computer and even can be shown right next to the patient’s chair. It’s easier to pinpoint the problem areas and the two parties can benefit from it in the long run.
Eco-friendly: There’s less hazardous waste such as lead or silver salts for this device, so it will definitely make Mother Earth happy.
Early detection: An early detection of oral or dental disease can save a patient the pain of a procedure, as well as time and money. It also means a less invasive treatment.
Helps in Documenting Patient Records: Say goodbye to files that keep missing. With intraoral imaging, dentists are able to capture, print, and file their patients’ results with just a click. The records can be a future reference for them to save the trouble of examining the same teeth all over again.
