ANN ARBOR, MI, December 14, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Drs. Robert Tar and Allison Tar-Crutchfield, family dentist in Ann Arbor, of Ann Arbor Dental Associates are implementing the most cutting edge technology available in dentistry today at Dr. Tar's practice, including intra oral photography and panoramic X-ray machines.
Intraoral cameras are an excellent tool for a dentist who wants to utilize the most modern technology in dental procedures. Similar in size to a pen-light, these cameras magnify images up to 40X and project them on a nearby screen. Using a sterile sleeve over the camera for each patient, the Ann Arbor dentists, Dr. Tar and Tar-Crutchfield, can move the small camera freely in the patients' mouth.
In addition to helping the Ann Arbor dentists see and diagnose their patients' conditions, the intraoral camera also allows patients to see the inside of their mouths, giving them a better understanding of their own issues. The projected images can be paused or printed so the dentist can thoroughly explain the condition. Patients need time to consider important decisions regarding their health, and a printed image of the condition from an intraoral camera can assist in this process.
For those who may have been reluctant to have certain recommended dental procedures done, the intraoral camera allows them to see for themselves the issue the dentists in Ann Arbor are seeing, creating a better trust and understanding between dentist and patient.
Panoramic X-ray machines were first developed at the beginning of the 20th century but didn't become commonly available until the 1960's. Panoramic imaging is essential to modern dentistry, and Dr. Tar, general dentist in Ann Arbor, implements the most modern type of this diagnostic tool in his practice.
A panoramic X-ray creates an image of the entire jaw. Depending on the position of the patient and the machine, Drs. Tar and Tar-Crutchfield can sometimes view the sinuses with images from a panoramic X-ray.
Besides being able to clearly view the underlying adult teeth in children or emerging wisdom teeth in adults, panoramic X-rays can detect early cancer by showing tumors or bone defects on the images. For these reasons, Drs. Tar and Tar-Crutchfield recommend patients get a full panoramic X-ray once every 3 to 5 years as a way to detect and treat dental and other health problems.
Bone degeneration due to periodontal disease can be diagnosed by utilizing the panoramic X-ray images, as can disorders of the jaw and cavities that may not e picked up by traditional dental X-rays. Drs. Tar and Tar-Crutchfield use the panoramic X-ray as a way to plan for various dental surgeries.
