Digital Dental and Cone Beam X-rays
Dental x-rays offer a behind-the-scenes view of your mouth. As skilled as a dentist is at looking at your mouth to examine your teeth, x-rays allow your dental teem to check the internal parts of your mouth that are not visible to the naked eye. Digital x-rays give off 90 percent less radiation than traditional x-rays, and they are ready to be viewed the second they are taken.
Your Prosper, TX dentist also utilizes 3D Cone Beam X-rays to view your underlying bone and tissue structure. This is an especially invaluable tool when a patient opts for dental implants, has a root fracture, needs an endodontic procedures, or a tooth extraction. Cone Beam x-rays can also help in identifying temporomandibular joint disorder.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer screenings are an important part of dental checkups. Oral cancer has a high survival rate – 50 to 80 percent – when caught early. Detection can be challenging, however, because the first sign of oral cancer is often a small sore or bump that many patients write off as a canker sore. Dr. Ganjoor is trained to identify suspicious sores, and will also use the VELscope tool to further evaluate your mouth for possible malignancies. The VELscope scans your mouth with a blue light that can highlight areas of concern. The whole test is comfortable and fast, taking only about two minutes.
