We Eliminate The Guesswork With Dental Imaging

It’s almost impossible to imagine the practice of dentistry without x-ray technology. Radiographs (x-ray pictures) allow dentists to diagnose and treat problems not yet visible to the naked eye, including early tooth decay, gum disease, abscesses and abnormal growths. There is no question that since x-rays first became available a century ago, this diagnostic tool has prevented untold suffering and saved countless teeth. Now, state-of-the-art digital x-rays have made the technology even safer and more beneficial.

At Genesee Family Dentistry, we're dedicated to having the latest technology to serve the people of Flint the best way we can.

Digital X-Rays

Digital radiography (digital x-ray) is the latest technology used to take dental x-rays. This technique uses an electronic sensor (instead of x-ray film) that captures and stores the digital image on a computer. This image can be instantly viewed and enlarged helping us detect problems easier. Digital x-rays reduce radiation 80-90% compared to the already low exposure of traditional dental x-rays.

Dental x-rays are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. We use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden dental abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan. Without x-rays, problem areas may go undetected.

3D Imaging CBCT

Traditional dental imaging systems have been around for several years now. Some of the common methods that dentists rely on are x-rays, oral scans, intraoral radiography, tomography, among others. However, with the advancement in technology, arose a need for a better imaging system that got rid of the limitations of the traditional system.

We would like to present to you, Green Vatech Cone beam CT imaging system, the most advanced oral imaging system at the moment. It uses a cone-shaped beam of light, that is projected on the face of the patient from a revolving set up. The patient can either stay seated or in a standing position while the device revolves around their head. The data from the scan is sent to the computer device where it is analyzed and projected on to a screen. This provides an infinite number of views of every little feature of the patient’s oral set up without distortion. The best part is that they can be viewed in 3-D.
