Digital x-rays are the newest technology used in dentistry to take and archive dental x-rays. Digital x-rays significantly reduces the amount of radiation as compared to traditional dental x-rays. This technique captures a digital picture of teeth with their supporting bone structures and stores the images on a computer in our Chicago Dental Office. You and Dr. Ranganathan will be able to instantly view your x-rays and enlarge the image to aid in the identification of dental problems and to guage your dental health. Dr. Ranganathan will use this information to create an individualized treatment plan.
Taking pictures of the teeth and supporting tissue with a small video camera about the size of a pen is a wonderful addition to dentistry today. The intra-oral camera creates digital images that can be stored on a computer at State Street Dental. The images are shared with our patients so they can join with us in the "co-diagnosis" of problems with their dental health. We can show you how others view your smile and which fillings are broken or discolored. We look forward to showing you a dental tour of your mouth in the privacy of your treatment room.

Sirona 3D Pano
The new OrtHOPHOs XG 3d combines the advantages of 2d and 3d into one comprehensive unit. With an extensive selection of panoramic and cephalometric programs to choose from, the right 2d diagnostic images are now augmented with the ability to capture 3d X-ray.
The 3d function increases diagnostic accuracy for all clinical needs and, when used in combination with cerec, it offers new possibilities in implantology.
The new hybrid unit from sirona requires about the same space as a traditional 2d X-ray machine, but now provides the advantages of 2d and 3d together in your practice while encouraging the lowest possible effective dose for the patient.
