Intraoral Cameras For A More Transparent Visit
We pride ourselves on keeping up with the latest dental technology so that we can serve every patient with the best dental care possible.
The intraoral camera is an amazing diagnostic tool for viewing different angles in the mouth that we would not have been able to view just a few years ago. The camera gives us the ability to view the entire mouth on a monitor so that we can get a closer look at any potential issues or problems that may arise. In addition, the patient will have the ability to see first hand the same images that we are seeing. These digital images are also excellent for gaining procedure acceptance from insurance companies.
MORE WAYS WE DESIGN YOUR SMILE THROUGH DENTAL TECHNOLOGY
A panorex is a very impressive piece of imaging machinery in that it is capable of identifying many issues and structures that a normal x-ray is not. Initially, you will sit in a chair with your chin on a small ledge. Once positioned in the machine, it will rotate around your entire head taking a full 360 degree view of the teeth, head, sinuses and bones.
CONE BEAM TECHNOLOGY
Cone Beam technology is one of the most important pieces of dental technology we use today. It allows us to provide 3D imaging of the teeth, soft tissue and gums while reducing the patients exposure to radiation. Each scan gives us a transparent image of the health of your mouth allowing us to create an appropriate treatment plan.
Nitrous oxide sedation is very safe and effective. This option allows us to perform more than one treatment in the same day. Once the procedure is over the nitrous oxide will wear off fairly quickly, and you will probably be able to drive yourself home and return to your daily activities.
