Dental imaging is the process of creating high quality images for diagnosing the dental problems. Dental imaging is a technology that helps the dentists to diagnose dental diseases by providing visual images of dental problems such as cavities, bone loss, oral malignant melanoma and hidden dental structure. Radiography is a valuable imaging tool that helps to examine the dental problems. Radiography is developed with image sensor technologies such aspanoramic, cephalometric, cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), and intra-oral dental imaging. The dental beam tomography is type of x-ray machine, which is used instead of regular dental or facial x-rays.
There are several types of dental X-rays devices which shows different aspects of teeth includes intraoral x-rays, bite-wing x-rays, periapical x-rays, extraoral x-rays, panoramic x-rays, tomograms, sialogram and Cephalometric projections x-rays.The extraoral x-rays are used to treat the problems of jaw and skull. Cone beam CT is a type of 3D imaging x-ray that creates 3D images of dental soft tissues, nerves and bones. It also helps to guide tooth implantation and evaluates cysts and tumors in the mouth and face.it can also detect problems of gums, roots of teeth. The periapical x-ray is used to see the whole tooth from the crown and beyond the root where the tooth attaches into jaw it also detect unusual changes in the root and surrounding bone structures.
Based on application the dental imaging market covers therapeutic application, diagnostic application, forensic application and cosmetic application.
