A dentist’s skill and commitment to their patients are perhaps the most important elements that contribute to the quality of the care they provide. However, the tools and equipment at their disposal are also significant. We understand that, which is why we have invested in some of the most advanced dental technology on the market today. In the sections below, you will learn more about the tools we use to enhance your experience with us.
Digital X-Rays allow us to get a detailed look at your teeth and jawbone — including portions of them that we cannot see during a standard visual examination. Via X-Rays, we can diagnose potential issues while they are still in their early stages and thereby reduce your risk of pain and complications. The X-Ray process is fast and non-invasive. It is also quite safe; digital X-Ray technology uses about 90% less radiation than its traditional film counterpart.
While digital X-Rays are extremely valuable, they do not always provide the level of detail that is required to diagnose complex dental issues or plan advanced treatments, such as dental implant placement. That is where our CBCT scanner, also known as a cone beam scanner, comes into the picture. It uses a cone-shaped beam of radiation to produce a three-dimensional representation of your mouth, including your teeth, jaw, nerves, and connective tissues.
Manual dental impressions can be uncomfortable for patients, and they can significantly extend the length of an appointment — especially if it takes multiple appointments to get an accurate impression. That is why we have a digital impression system. We simply move a wand around the mouth. It captures thousands of images of the teeth and assembles them into a digital representation of the teeth. This impression method is accurate, comfortable, quick, and convenient.
