Digital Radiographs (Schick)
Digital radiography is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography.
Instead of X-ray film, digital radiography uses a digital image capture device. This gives advantages of immediate image preview and availability; elimination of costly film processing steps; a wider dynamic range, which makes it more forgiving for over- and under-exposure; as well as the ability to apply special image processing techniques that enhance overall display of the image.
An intraoral image is defined as a photographic image/images obtained by intraoral or extra oral cameras.
There are several reasons why we take intraoral images (code D0350) on your child. Intra oral images are important diagnostic aids for our dentists and professional staff. By taking these images our professionals are able to map out a clear plan and assessment of the patients needs as well as being able to clearly envision how to correct a problem. It magnifies the image, enables us to detect lesions, assists the dentists in restoring the tooth’s anatomy and, it depicts the severity of tooth conditions.
