Learn About Dental Imaging

Dental imaging tools like digital x-rays allow our dentist to identify cavities, infections, bone loss and abnormal growths to ensure timely and accurate diagnoses and precise treatments. 

CEPH X-ray


A Cephalometric X-ray, or Ceph X-ray, is a diagnostic radiograph used primarily for orthodontic treatment planning. Ceph X-Rays are extraoral, so patients do not have to insert any sort of trays, bitewings or films into the mouth. They are also safe, fast, painless and extremely effective.

Digital X-rays

Digital x-rays allow our dentist to identify structural problems within the tooth roots and bones to ensure prompt diagnoses and accurate treatments. Unlike traditional film x-rays, the digital version minimizes the amount of radiation exposure, keeping patients safe.

Intraoral Camera

An intraoral camera is a small video camera that takes an image of the outside of the gum or tooth. The intraoral camera resembles an oversized pen. While simultaneously viewing a monitor, the dentist inserts the camera into a patient's mouth and gently shifts it about so that images can be taken from a variety of angles.

iTero Dental Impressions

The iTero Intraoral Scanner allows doctors to take a 3D digital scan of a patient’s teeth and bite rather than using a viscous impression material. This digital impression scanner can be used for veneers, crowns, bridges, surface inlays, onlays, implant abutments from single units to full arches and even modeling an Invisalign treatment. Patients are also able to view before and simulated after images of their dental treatments on an in-office computer display.

KaVo DIAGNOdent Laser Cavity Finder

The KaVo DIAGNOdent laser is a revolutionary, ADA approved method for detecting cavities using sound. Using a low-density laser, hidden decay is found much the same way a metal detector locates metal objects in the ground. When the laser pinpoints a cavity, it produces a sound. Thanks to this new technology, your dentist at ProDental can discover unseen decay long before other conventional methods and provide treatment before larger oral problems develop. The procedure is quick and pain-free.
