At Calabasas Dental Spa, we utilize the latest technology to ensure our patients receive the highest quality care. We use digital X-rays, CBCT scans, and infrared cameras to diagnose and treat dental issues accurately and quickly.
Digital X-rays have quickly become the standard of dental care. While most dentists use only X-rays to detect cavities, at Calabasas Dental Spa, we also use an infrared digital camera to check the status of the developmental grooves of the teeth and special software to check for cavities between the teeth. Early detection of cavities means using minimally invasive, biomimetic restorations and saving most of your healthy teeth.
Our digital X-ray system helps provide us with clear, detailed images of your teeth and jawbone immediately following an exam. This allows us to detect problems that may not be visible during a regular visual examination. With this advanced imaging technology, we can get an accurate picture of what’s going on in our mouth – even for cavities or other issues that are hard to spot.
Digital X-rays are also beneficial for monitoring bone health, checking for impacted teeth, monitoring jaw growth and development, and detecting potential problems of the teeth, jaws, and temporomandibular joints (TMJ). We can also discover cyst abscesses, developmental abnormalities, and tumors that cannot be detected with visual examinations alone.
- Cone-beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) and stereophotography: Cone-beam
Computed Tomography (CBCT) and stereophotography are two of the latest imaging modalities available for three-dimensional (3-D) view of your entire mouth, jaw, nasal, and throat areas. A CBCT creates fantastic 3D images that show bone, airway, and soft tissue in these areas and any dental. CBCT scans use much less than the CT scans you are used to, and they are very safe while providing many benefits, like more views and angles of three-dimensional images to evaluate more complex structures. This information can include images of:
In addition to digital X-rays, our practice offers infrared camera scans. These infrared scans give us an even more detailed view of your teeth, gums, and surrounding area. We can use them to detect everything from plaque buildup to existing caries (cavities) that may need treatment.
Using digital X-rays and infrared camera scans allows us to diagnose and treat dental issues quickly and accurately – saving you time in the long run. With this advanced technology, we can provide our patients with quality care that meets their needs and exceeds their expectations.

Typically, we recommend having digital x-rays once a year. Infrared camera scans can be done more frequently if necessary - depending on your individual needs.
Yes, both procedures are highly safe. Digital X-rays use deficient levels of radiation that pose no risk to your health. The infrared camera scan uses light to detect cavities or other issues in the mouth – making it a noninvasive procedure.
Digital X-Rays and infrared camera scans provide us with detailed images of your teeth, gums, and surrounding area so that we can quickly detect any problems. They also allow us to monitor bone health, check for impacted teeth, monitor jaw growth and development, and detect potential problems of the teeth – all without having to resort to invasive treatments such as drilling or filing. This helps save our patients time in the long run by providing accurate diagnosis and treatment quickly.
