Cone Beam CT 3D Imaging
The latest addition to our office is our Carestream Cone Beam CT. This technology enables us to take three-dimensional xrays of your teeth and jaws! 3D xrays allows us to make more accurate diagnoses and catch problems that are not often seen in conventional 2D xrays! This technology also allows us to precisely place dental implants using a surgical guide, which ensures a safer surgery where we can place an implant exactly where we want it in the bone, and avoiding nerves or a sinus.
In addition to being much more comfortable for the patient, using the scanner allows us to be more efficient and accurate, which can result in a reduced number of visits to the office, saving the patient time.
Digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation needed as compared to film x-rays. The improved diagnostic capability of digital x-rays and the ability to view the x-rays on a computer screen allow the patient to better understand and follow treatment. Digital x-rays are instant, there is no longer a need to develop the film. Digital x-rays save time and increase patient care. It’s also a very green technology. By eliminating film, developer and chemical waste it is better for you and the environment!
Soft Tissue Lasers
Soft tissue lasers are used for periodontal (gum) surgeries. These lasers are more efficient, cause less discomfort, promote a faster healing time, and decreased risk of infection, providing a better outcome.
Digital Intraoral Cameras
An intra-oral camera combines the latest video technologies with dental care. Both the patient and dentist can see detailed images of the teeth and mouth in real time. With an intraoral camera, you are able to better understand what is happening in your mouth and review the status of your oral health.
Noise Cancelling Headphones
These ultra quiet headphones are for patient use during any dental procedure. Patients can listen to their favorite music, movie, or television show without having to hear all of the surrounding noise going on as the dental work is being performed.
Our office offers free Wi-Fi for our patients use while visiting our office.
