Cameras & X-Rays
Canon 20D Digital Camera
A picture is worth a thousand words....
The digital photo taken with the Canon 20D at your initial appointment are very useful, they enable you to see what we see & are a vital component in planning your care.
With these photos we are able to work with you to discuss what you like and dislike about your smile and what results you would like to achieve. The Canon D is also used to document treatment procedures, create before and after pictures for you to see and truly appreciate the results we have achieved.
Intra Oral Camera
With a small camera mounted on a wand, we are able to capture pictures of the smallest areas in your mouth and project the image onto a computer screen. This allows Dr. Babin to more closely inspect your teeth & gums. We are able to see cracks in old fillings, decay in areas that simply appear stained to the naked eye, and to more closely examine any lesions or other areas of concern in your mouth.
The intra oral camera also gives you, our guest, the opportunity to be more involved in every aspect of treatment for your oral care. The pictures are stored in the computer so they can be referenced each time you visit our office.
Gendex Digital X-ray System
Digital X-rays are an extremely progressive addition to our dental office. Digital X-rays are computer generated images. These images require up to 90% less radiation than with conventional film type X-rays.
Instead of using the traditional silver-oxide X-ray film that must be developed and then fixed in caustic and environmentally damaging solutions, the new system takes pictures via a small electronic sensor. It then instantaneously transmits a picture of the tooth onto the video monitor in the treatment room, allowing us to see your teeth and surrounding structures immediately.
Not only does the new digital X-ray eliminate the usual wait for X-ray film to be processed, but it also is highly sensitive - allowing better diagnosis - and our guests are exposed to even less radiation than with conventional X-rays.
