Our team at Seahurst Park Dentistry is dedicated to providing families in Burien with the highest quality of dental care. One of the ways we’re able to do this is by equipping our dental office with the latest dental instruments, including an intraoral camera and digital X-ray imaging system. Not only does this advanced technology allow us to make each of your appointments faster and more convenient, but they also help us deliver more thorough care to keep your smile healthier than ever.
Our intraoral camera is a handheld imaging device that we can use to easily maneuver around your mouth to get a better look at troublesome nooks and crannies that may not be visible to the naked eye. The camera is hooked up to a large chairside monitor, so you can view the same images that we are capturing during your examination. That way, we’re able to better describe any issues and how our recommended treatments will take care of them.
In the past, dentists would use film X-rays to capture images of the surfaces of your mouth that lie below your gumline. The technology required harmful chemicals for development and exposed patients to an uncomfortable amount of radiation. Today, we utilize all digital X-ray imaging to make the process more thorough and safer than ever before. This advanced technology produces clearer images that allow us to make precise diagnoses and reduces radiation exposure by up to 90 percent, making the process completely safe for children and adults alike.
