Digital Radiographs (X-rays)
Digital radiographs (X-rays) are a technological advancement that result in less exposure to radiation for our patients and an almost instantaneous picture for Drs. Carroll, Atwood, and Carroll. Unlike traditional, film-based X-rays, digital radiographs often show more detail and can be archived in our computerized system for quick future reference and comparison. You will appreciate a more comfortable visit, with less waiting and faster treatment.
Digital photography gives your dentist instant images to keep on file to track your progress. Digital images can be saved electronically in our computer system and are more efficient than traditional photographs that must be taken off-site for development.
An intraoral camera lets you see inside your mouth during both treatment planning and dental procedures. Our intraoral camera displays your teeth on a video screen, allowing your dentist to walk you through your proposed treatment. This camera allows us to work with you to meet your dental care goals. Your dentist is always happy to answer any questions you may have about your treatment options. We want you to picture how your appearance will improve with dental care, giving you all the more reason to smile!
Cone Beam 3D Imaging
Understanding the unique composition of your smile is vital to a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. Enjoy the latest digital X-ray technology known as Cone Beam 3D Imaging at Topsfield Dental Associates. Unlike flat, two-dimensional X-rays, Cone Beam images provide a 3D digital replica of the bones and tissue of your face, teeth, jaw, and head. Your computerized image is easily manipulated, allowing your dental team to zoom-in on specific areas, to view your scan from various angles, and to ultimately better understand the complete makeup of your smile. This understanding is extremely useful when your dentist is planning dental implant treatments, as well as many other restorative and cosmetic dental treatments. Best of all, your Cone Beam scan is painless, takes only ten seconds, and safely operates with a lower dose of radiation than a traditional CT scan. The imaging system’s scanner rotates around your head one complete circle. With Cone Beam 3D Imaging, enjoy a truly customized treatment plan based on your exact dental needs!
