Best Dental Digital X-Rays | Joplin MO

Dental Cone Beam CT Scan

Digital X-Rays

Dental x-rays have been a valuable diagnostic tool in dentistry for many years.  New technology provides us the opportunity to use digital x-rays. 

A digital x-ray is exceptional and delivers advanced imaging possibilities that allows for a precise image of your teeth and gums. Digital x-rays take less time and you are exposed to less radiation. 

For those who have trouble with gag reflex, there is even a way to capture an image of the teeth without having to put a sensor or x-ray film in your mouth. 

Digital x-rays will help us to obtain necessary information about your dental health in a quicker and more comfortable way.

Dental Cone Beam CT

Digital x-ray technology has continued to expand and improve the precise diagnosis of different dental related problems. Joplin Family Dental has a Cone Beam Computed Tomography unit. CBCT scans are the latest and greatest technology available in digital imaging for dental patients.

The CBCT scan is used to obtain a 3-dimensional view of your upper teeth, lower teeth, sinuses and jaw bone. The Cone Beam x-ray can be used to diagnose the following:

  • locating the origin of dental pain
  • TMJ disorders
  • surgical planning for removal of wisdom teeth
  • accurate placement of dental implants
  • evaluation of the jaw, sinuses, nerve canals and nasal cavity

This 3-dimensional view is better than the traditional 2-dimensional x-ray to provide a better and more accurate diagnosis for your dental problems.
