Advanced Technology for Exceptional Dental Care
We use the latest technology in all areas of our practice, from our modern amenities to our state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment processes. These leading-edge technologies not only help us provide more efficient and precise dentistry—they also make your visits with us more efficient and enjoyable. Why settle for anything less than the fastest, most comfortable care possible?
Digital X-rays emit significantly less radiation than conventional X-rays, and they’re faster and more comfortable, too. Digital X-rays don’t require any lengthy chemical processing, so the images are available on our computer screen within seconds.
We use digital X-rays in the dental exams of patients of all ages, because many problems with the teeth and surrounding tissues cannot be seen during a standard visual exam. X-rays are needed to reveal:
- Deep cavities and decay between teeth
- Decay below existing restorations
- Infections in the jaw bones
- Abscesses, cysts, and some tumors
- Early signs of oral cancer and gum disease
- Developmental abnormalities
Detecting and treating serious problems at an early stage can save you unnecessary discomfort, money, and time. In cases where X-rays help us detect oral cancer and periodontal disease, they can even help save your life!
Like dental X-rays, digital photographs taken with our intraoral cameras are a useful diagnostic and patient education tool.
Intraoral cameras enable us to diagnose complex issues by providing more detailed, up-close views of areas that are often difficult to see, including the back molars. Photos taken with our intraoral cameras are also the best way for us to show you exactly what we see during your exam. Having a thorough understanding of your diagnosis and treatment options will empower you to make wise, well-informed decisions about your oral health.
