Bringing Dentistry into the Modern Age
Just like any other medical field, research and development continues to bring the world of dentistry into the modern age. The field has only evolved over the years, making your future treatments more efficient, more comfortable, and much easier to complete. Our dental office technology is designed to make your treatments more comprehensive, especially when it comes to your preventive care. Below, you’ll learn more about these technologies and how they make your next visit even better.
When you get your X-rays done, you can rest easy knowing that they are completely safe, effective, and faster than X-rays of the past. By going fully digital, we can show you a detailed image of your current smile in just a few minutes, all while reducing your exposure to radiation by over 80 percent compared to previous methods. We’ll always take the necessary precautions to ensure your safety from start to finish.
Have you ever felt unsure of why you might need a certain treatment, such as a filling or crown? Do you feel like you need to see an issue before you feel comfortable pursuing treatment? Our intraoral camera makes it easy to take high-quality images of your mouth, display them on a nearby monitor for closer viewing, and explain why we may recommend treatments to protect your oral health.
If you’ve ever had a crown placed or an appliance made for you in the past, then you’ve experienced putty impressions. Not only are they uncomfortable and time-consuming, but they are often inaccurate. That’s why we use a digital scanner. A small instrument scans your entire mouth within minutes, collecting the precise data needed for your custom restoration or appliance without causing a gag reflex. It’s one more way we’re changing the dental experience for our patients!
One of the ways we make your dental care more effective and efficient is by using a CBCT scanner. This amazing piece of dental technology takes hundreds of images in a matter of seconds by rotating around the patient’s head. These digital images give us a more detailed look at the dental structure and areas of the mouth that are difficult to see with a regular exam. Using the CBCT scanner, we create more precise and customized treatment plans that lead to better results! This state-of-the-art equipment also allows us to create 3D models of the smile without the need for messy, nasty putty.
