Digital Imaging

What Is Digital Imaging?

Digital imaging uses less radiation than radiographic film and is produced at the source — such as a dental X-ray machine. To produce digital images, a process called ADC (Analog to Digital Conversion) is required. Through the process of sampling and quantization, Gulf Coast Dental is able to digitally convert images of your teeth. All of this means that we can analyze detailed images of your teeth and gums on a computer screen throughout your appointment.

Why Use Digital Imaging?

Gulf Coast Dental uses digital imaging for our X-rays to guarantee the strongest detail in our X-rays while also maintaining the health of our patients. We use digital imaging to check on the roots of your teeth, the development of cavities, the potential of gingivitis and even the progression of tooth development for our patients that are children.

Digital images can be sent directly to a computer to be stored, printed or viewed. More advantageous than traditional X-rays, digital images can be enlarged to view teeth closer. This makes it easier for your dentist to see the tiniest changes that can’t be seen in an oral exam. Also, if necessary, images can be sent electronically to another dentist or specialist for a second opinion or to a new dentist. It’s also important to note that digital imaging uses less radiation than traditional X-rays.

Different Types Of Dental Images

Dental images can be taken in two ways — either outside the patient’s mouth or from the inside. Your dentist will work with you to find the best way to view your teeth and mouth. With extraoral and intraoral X-ray options, we at Gulf Coast Dental can help you have the healthiest teeth and gums possible.

Gulf Coast Dental And Digital Imaging

We use digital imaging software in our office, which allows us to take a digital picture of your teeth. We use our imaging system to predict how a particular treatment or cosmetic procedure would change the appearance of your teeth.

This software is beneficial for patients who are considering cosmetic procedures but are not sure if they’re ready for dramatic changes. Digital imaging also allows us to document your dental case and procedures very well. We take digital images of your face, teeth and smile to provide us with a permanent dental record and to provide a visual documentation of treatment.

Extremely Understanding

Not a good dental patient but good experience. All were extremely understanding and calming and great block. Took 7 years to venture to a new dentist after losing ours and very happy and comfortable with the choice.
