Modern Dental Technology
Our office uses the latest technology to help diagnose and treat our patients. These effective tools assist our team in taking a closer look at problem areas in the mouth and providing an accurate impression of the teeth and gums:
Digital x-rays: Digital x-rays create detailed images of the teeth and gums so that we can easily diagnose dental problems. Because these x-rays are digital, we can easily share them with oral surgeons or specialists. They are also safer than traditional methods as they give off 80% less radiation.
Intraoral cameras: Small intraoral cameras allow our team to view different angles of the mouth so we can get a better view of each patient’s dental problems. These images are projected on a monitor so we can show them to our patients in real-time. Intraoral cameras are a key aspect of patient education.
Digital impressions: Traditional dental impressions are made of a thick putty material that is messy and uncomfortable to use. Digital impressions are an alternative for patients that uses a handheld scanning camera to capture digital impressions. Like digital x-rays, these impressions can be saved and shared with local dental labs or surgeons.
