Digital X-Rays Q & A
What is digital dentistry?
Digital dentistry provides realistic, 3-dimensional images not only of your teeth but of your entire jaw and even your muscles and soft tissue instead of having traditional X-rays. This allows for a more accurate and precise diagnosis and treatment.
For example, if you’re experiencing jaw pain, Dr. Moawad can use digital dentistry to determine if you’re suffering from temporomandibular joint disorder.
Why is digital dentistry advantageous to traditional X-rays?
Dr. Moawad only uses 3Shape 3D digital imaging to provide you with a more accurate diagnosis in comparison to taking X-rays or impressions. Digital imaging provides a plethora of information that can help in developing treatment plans.
In addition to providing more accurate information, other benefits of 3D over traditional X-rays include:
- Reduced radiation exposure
- Efficiently pinpointed problem areas
- A holistic understanding of the problem
- No need to worry about having a gag reflex
Seeing your anatomy in three dimensions, Dr. Moawad can study your images by rotating them and dividing them in half to get a 360° view of your mouth and face.
In addition, patients truly enjoy that they don’t need to have the gooey and gag-inducing bite molds in their mouth when they come into Dental Arts of Hoboken. Having digital imaging done allows for a clean and more productive trip to the dentist than the use of X-rays and impressions.
