Today there are many ways to detect dental issues before they become bigger concerns. Our main goal is for you to maintain your beautiful smile with healthy teeth and gums! We use several tools to help us catch problems that may not be visible from the traditional perspective. Some technology we use include a caries detector, digital radiography, and an intra-oral camera.
The caries detector uses an LED light directed into the grooves of a tooth to detect holes or decay.
Our digital radiographs are created with very sensitive and modern digital sensors that require a fraction of the radiation exposure used in older, film-based radiography. This process is very quick, giving us a nearly instant view of your teeth and bones that would be invisible to the naked eye.
Our intra-oral camera is a conveniently small wand we use to capture images of your teeth. We can then display these images on our chair-side monitors to discuss with you, and store them in your records for reference.
