3D imagery is a fast growing part of dental practice. This technology provides the doctor with an in-depth view of the mouth and skull, allowing bone structure, bone density, tissues, and nerves to be clearly viewed and examined. These are quick scans resulting in far less radiation exposure to the body.
Digital x-rays allow the doctor to get a much better view of your teeth and potential dental conditions. The digital imaging software allows the doctor to see a number of different views of each tooth to gain a better understanding of the proper course of management. Digital x-rays provide a great benefit to the patient. Not only are they an excellent diagnostic tool, but they decrease radiation to the patient by over 80%.
Soft Tissue Laser
A diode soft tissue laser allows our doctors to do a multitude of procedures in a more precise manner and with much less discomfort or post-operative pain than before. Patients are able to leave the office feeling minimal pain after these procedures are completed. Some of the many procedures that are now available with the laser include: exposure of unerupted teeth, frenectomy, gingivectomy, and soft tissue crown lengthening.
Intraoral cameras are an excellent means for allowing the patient to view potential dental conditions in their own mouth. It is much easier to understand what is happening in your mouth if you can see the problem on a computer monitor. This digital image can be utilized to provide information to insurances and other doctors if necessary.
