Digital Radiography (X-Rays)

Digital Radiography at Cynthia A. Layport, DMD X-rays are a primary tool for early identification of dental problems. Detecting issues with X-rays before they become problems can save you money in the long run by preventing the need for more extensive, expensive procedures or surgeries. X-rays are primarily used to detect:
•  Internal tooth decay
•  Cysts (fluid filled sacks at the base of your teeth)
•  Tumors, both cancerous and non-cancerous
•  Impacted teeth
•  Bone Loss
•  Teeth that are still coming in
•  Root shape and length


Dr. Layport uses digital radiography (x-rays) which have several advantages over traditional film based x-rays.
•  They emit up to 90% less radiation
•  They are ready for examination nearly instantly
•  They can be viewed on a computer screen
•  Their image can be refined and enlarged
•  They are greener; no chemicals are needed for processing
•  They are easy to share with your dentist, other specialists, and your insurance company.


VELscope - Oral Cancer Screening


The VELscope system helps dental professionals visualize abnormalities in the mucosal tissues of your lips, mouth and upper throat. In just two minutes, with no rinses, stains or discomfort, a VELscope examination lets healthcare professionals improve their assessment of your overall oral health.



The VELscope's blue light "excites" molecules (called "fluorophores") deep within the layers of oral mucosal tissues. In turn, those fluorophores emit their own light (fluorescence), in shades of green, yellow and red. The VELscope's proprietary filter makes fluorescence visualization possible, by blocking reflected blue light, and by enhancing the contrast between normal and abnormal tissue.
