Our office offers modern technology used to help diagnose and treat patients:
Digital x-rays are able to show areas of decay that may not be able to be seen with a visual examination alone. Damage to dental fillings, bone loss, root canal problems, cysts, and tooth growth can be visualized using this technology. X-rays help our dentists plan dental implant placement, orthodontic treatments, dentures, and other dental work.
We use an intraoral camera to help us better identify dental problems and diagnose patients. The intraoral digital camera provides a close-up view of teeth from angles that normally would be more challenging. In addition, the camera can provide a real-time image as well as a printed picture of the mouth. There are multiple benefits to this technology, including high-power magnification and lighting, better and more accurate documentation, and the ability to educate patients with clearer dental pictures.
Laser Cavity Detection
Laser Cavity Detection is used to scans teeth to measure fluorescence within the tooth structure. Higher levels of fluorescence are proportionate to extensive tooth decay. This tool enables our dentists to more quickly diagnose decay and prevent extensive tooth and gum damage. Early detection means fewer dental treatments, and laser detection is non-invasive and highly accurate.
3-D Imaging TRIOS
TRIOS is an intra-oral scanner that takes high definition photos of teeth and gums as they are scanned. The HD photos add a level of detail make it easier to find the placement of teeth. This digital solution can also create 3-D digital impressions, measures color shades of teeth. Using this information, dental technicians are able to design and manufacture high-quality dental restorations.
