Technology drives a lot of dentistry treatments and services today. Digital imaging and other solutions can help enhance the precision and quality of procedures, from preventive care to cosmetic and restorative dentistry options. We’ve invested in several technological tools at our office to help keep our patients comfortable and better informed during their treatments. Click the links below to learn more about the dental technologies we use in our practice.
CEREC crowns are one of the most innovative dental technologies to ever emerge. With CEREC crowns, you don’t have to worry about messy impressions, temporary dental crowns, or multiple visits. CEREC crowns are made in our office, placed in just one visit, and are crafted from pure porcelain and contain no metal. CEREC crowns look and feel just like your natural teeth!
These digitally crafted and discreet aligners are designed to help move misaligned teeth into place. They are clear, BPA-free, and made from acrylic. As they are not bonded to your teeth like traditional braces, they can be removed when brushing your teeth or eating.
Digital x-rays, also known as digital radiography, use 80 percent less radiation than traditional x-rays. This means that they are safer for you. And they are safer for the environment because there is no waste created from chemical processing.
After we make a digital x-ray, we can show it to you on a monitor next to the chair. This will help you better understand our treatment and diagnosis recommendations. We always want you to be educated so that you can rest well knowing you made informed decisions about your dental care.
Digital x-rays are also transferrable. They can be sent to other doctors, insurance agencies, or kept for your own records.
Sometimes, there are hard-to-reach places in a patient’s mouth. That is where an intraoral camera can help. It is a long and narrow handpiece with a small camera attached at the end. It allows us to see precise images inside your mouth. A tiny, fiber-optic light illuminates the area we are viewing. The camera’s image is transmitted to a large monitor, where we can see details of your teeth and mouth.
Images captured from the intraoral camera can be transmitted, too, to specialists and insurance providers. We also keep them in your file for future reference.
CBCT Cone Beam
The CBCT Cone Beam is a unique, advanced type of x-ray that we use in situations in which regular dental or facial x-rays cannot get the job done. It is particularly strong and can generate 3D images of soft tissues, dental structures, nerve paths, and bones. Moreover, it can generate all these images in a single scan.
