Our office has been around for a long time. During those years, we’ve seen many changes to the dental field, often in the types of technology being used. We’ve taken the time to carefully look at these new technologies and see which ones would provide the most benefit to our patients. The technologies we’ve chosen for our office have been proven to reduce treatment times and improve comfort, efficiency, and effectiveness. Your comfort and safety are of the utmost importance to us, and the technology we use in our dental office is a reflection of that.
2D Digital X-Rays
This technology allows us to take highly-detailed images of your teeth to detect cavities and other potential problems. In some respects, the process for taking digital x-rays is not all that different from film x-rays. However, digital imaging is quick, comfortable, and significantly reduces your exposure to radiation. Using digital x-rays allows us to see the tiniest problems before they become more serious and costly to fix.
3D X-Ray Machine CBCT
Our practice utilizes state-of-the-art, small volume cone-beam CT (computed tomography) technology that provides highly accurate, 3-D radiographic images for the diagnosis, planning and treatment of endodontic disease. This allows three-dimensional visualization of teeth, bone, sinuses and surrounding structures with minimal radiation to the patient, enabling a level of anatomical accuracy and patient care not possible with 2-D technologies (regular dental x-rays).
An intraoral camera is specially designed for use in dentistry. This small handheld camera is about the size of a pen, and it allows us to take highly detailed images of your teeth. These enlarged images let us detect details that are simply too small to see during a visual exam.
Each of our treatment rooms is equipped with a TV monitor so we can share the images with you. This allows you to see exactly what we see when examining your teeth. Using these images, we can show you the reason you need treatment and talk to you about your options. Using an intraoral camera provides us with the information we need to make your diagnosis easier and more accurate.
Our advanced laser technology allows us to detect problems in your teeth more quickly and repair them with more precision. Faster, safer, and less invasive than traditional dentistry, treatment with dental lasers can benefit you if you’re anxious about dental procedures or just looking for ways to streamline your treatment. Lasers decrease the discomfort associated with certain dental procedures and provide for quicker healing times.
Televisions in Every Treatment Room
We have televisions in each of our treatment rooms for our patient’s viewing pleasure. These devices also allow us to display photos and x-rays of the patient’s teeth to assist with explanations about diagnosis and treatment. This technology allows the patient full disclosure about their treatment and care. The television in each room makes the environment more comfortable and entertaining.
The Trios Scanner is an intraoral scanner that we move around a patient’s mouth. Its camera captures countless images and assembles them into an accurate, detailed, three-dimensional representation of the patient’s teeth. We can use the TRIOS scanner to:
- Design dental prosthetics, such as crowns, bridges, and veneers.
- Communicate with patients about their recommended treatments and help them truly understand the path ahead of them.
- Gain a realistic, comprehensive, and easy to understand visualization of a patient’s oral structures.
Intraoral scanners from iTero scan the mouths of patients, capturing images to create three-dimensional dental images in minutes. Intraoral scanners are simple to use and can be operated by one person. Their user-friendly nature helps dental professionals get the best results. The scans they produce are also more detailed than the traditional two-dimensional images they replace.
Intraoral digital scans help dental professionals create accurate physical dental models for restorative work, including crowns, veneers, and implants. They also help orthodontists diagnose orthodontic problems and develop the best treatment plans.
