Intra Oral Camera

The Intra Oral Camera allows our Dental Avenue team to give you a guided tour of your mouth. The camera is mounted in a small tube that is easily moved around your mouth while you watch live on the screen. The camera allows you to see your teeth up close and view the problem areas and issues being explained by our Dentists. Another great benefit of having these images is it’s a great way to monitor teeth over time.

Low Dose, Digital X-Rays

At Dental Avenue, we ca take a simple digital X-ray, the result of which can be viewed instantly on a computer screen from where you sit in the dental chair. This allows for quick and accurate diagnosis, and to easily show patients any problem areas. These new digital x-rays also produce 90% less radiation than traditional film x-rays.

Cone Beam 3D Imaging

Cone beam scans give Dentists a three-dimensional representation of the head that allows us to accurately gauge the positions of the teeth, bone density, location of the nerves and a range of other important information at a significantly lower radiation dose over a traditional fan beam CT scan.

Some of the advantages of Cone Beam 3D imaging include:

  • 3D analysis for your jaw and face
  • Lower radiation dose than conventional CT
  • High resolution images
  • Reporting by Oral and ENT Surgeons
  • Short scan times of 10, 20 to 40 seconds

Some applications for 3D Data:

  • Implant planning
  • Wisdom teeth extractions
  • Impacted teeth
  • Jaw surgery planning
  • Fractures
  • Temporal bone
  • Periodontal (Gum) assessment
  • Airway assessments
  • OPG (Full face scan showing all teeth present)
  • Cysts and lesions
  • Sinus and Skull base assessment
