At Archbold Family Dental, we’re committed to providing our patients with the best dental care in Archbold, Ohio. We keep our office equipped with the best technology in the dental industry. With the advancement of technology, dentists are better able to diagnose problems more quickly and efficiently.
With tools and equipment such as digital and panoramic x-rays, we are armed to better prevent and treat your oral health needs.
One of the technologies we use is digital X-rays. Digital X-rays use sensors that are placed in your mouth and create images of your mouth instantly. With digital radiographic technology, there is no waiting for your X-rays to develop. Your X-rays will be projected onto a screen so that we can better explain your dental situation in real time. This assists with patient and doctor communication and provides a more clear image than traditional X-ray technology. These images can also easily digitally archived and can be referenced at later appointments.
Another technology that we use is a panoramic X-ray machine. For this imaging, we will have you bite down on a tiny piece of plastic. Panoramic X-rays are unique because they make one full image of your entire mouth. All of your teeth, both jaw bones, the nasal cavity, your sinuses, and your temporomandibular joints will all be captured in this image. Panoramic X-rays are used to see things like bone abnormalities, tumors, infections, and impacted teeth.
