Intraoral cameras and digital X-rays are tools our dentist and dental team use to detect and diagnose dental problems. An intraoral camera is a small, pen-shaped device that Dr. Goel uses to view multiple angles inside the mouth. The images are displayed on a monitor in the treatment room, allowing our dental team to view the teeth and gums and detect signs of periodontal disease, tooth decay, and other dental problems. Our patients can also view the images provided by the intraoral camera, helping them to better understand their oral health and dental treatments.
Digital X-rays also aid our skilled dentist in detecting and diagnosing dental problems. Digital radiography allows Dr. Goel to view dental conditions that may not be visible with the naked eye or with the intraoral camera, such as tooth decay between teeth, cysts, tumors, bone loss, or infection in the tooth nerve. Digital X-rays use approximately 80% less radiation than traditional X-rays, and they provide high-quality images that can be expanded for more accurate diagnoses. We welcome you to contact us at our dental office in Santa Clara, California for more information on intraoral cameras and digital X-rays. We are eager to get to know you!
