At our practice, we use the most modern dental technology because it helps with a more accurate diagnosis, gentler care and better results for you. Our technologies include digital x-rays, cone beam scanners, and intraoral cameras, just to name a few. We also have an in-house milling unit that allows us to prepare your custom-fit restorations in a timely and convenient manner.
Cone Beam Imaging — One of our newest technologies, the CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography), is a cutting-edge alternative to the traditional CT scan and an incredible improvement on the traditional x-ray. This machine takes 3D and digital panoramic images of your mouth, allowing us to monitor growth and diagnose problems, as well as view your entire mouth from every angle — in less than 20 seconds!
Previously, we were limited to a two-dimensional view and low-resolution x-rays, which made it harder to detect problems. The CBCT has changed that, making your diagnosis more precise and more accurate than ever before
Digital X-Ray — Digital radiography provides a detailed view of your individual tooth.
Digital x-rays use a digital image capture device in place of traditional film which sends an image immediately to a computer. The result is a highly detailed image of your tooth/teeth. We can enhance the image’s contrast and resolution. This image allows us to more easily diagnose dental problems and determine the very best treatment for each case. We can also transmit this image to other dentists and dental specialists, saving you time and money.
This means more safety and better accuracy for you. X-rays are a focused beam of x-ray particles that pass through bone to produce an image on special film, showing clearly the structure through which it passed. This creates the familiar black and white images doctors and dentists use to diagnose problems and diseases. Without an x-ray of the whole tooth and supporting bone and gum tissues, there would be no way to detect infection or pathology that requires attention.
Digital radiography uses an estimated 40-90 percent less radiation than conventional film x-rays. Digital x-rays use a digital image capture device in place of traditional film, sending an image immediately to a computer. The result is a highly detailed image of the mouth, and its contrast and resolution can be enhanced to more easily diagnose dental problems and determine the very best treatment for each case.
