Digital X-Rays

Our advanced digital X-rays magnify and enhance teeth for better diagnosis and treatment. This technology allows us to take images of your child’s teeth and display them on a computer screen quickly and easily.

With digital X-rays, we can view your child’s teeth and surrounding structures with remarkable accuracy. These images provide the information we need to plan their dental treatment. They also require much less radiation than traditional film X-rays, making them a safe and effective dental technology.

Panoramic X-Ray

A panoramic X-ray machine rotates around your child’s entire head to take a 360-degree view of their teeth, sinuses, and the bone structure of their head and jaws. This provides a more complete image than standard X-rays. Panoramic x-ray imagery is a valuable resource for Dr. Ritchie to use in diagnosis and treatment planning.

Intra-oral Camera

The intra-oral camera is about the size and shape of a pen. It is used to record images of your child’s teeth, gums, mouth, and tongue from inside their mouth. Due to its small size and sleek design, it is comfortable, easy to use, and able to view a wide range of angles. The intra-oral camera is a safe and effective tool that can be used with patients of every age.

The intra-oral camera is a highly valuable resource for both diagnosis and treatment planning. Each time we use the intra-oral camera, a new disposable cover is employed. This ensures your child’s health and safety at all times. After the exam, images captured by the intra-oral camera may be digitally stored, printed out, or deleted.
