Our team is committed to staying current with advances in dentistry that make treatment easier and more efficient. There's a lot of new technology to choose from, but we're committed to investing in equipment that streamlines treatment and minimizes discomfort. Our goal is to provide patients with the best dental experience possible while working as efficiently as we can.
A sensor is inserted into your mouth which aids in capturing the images of your teeth. Although it looks like the film used for traditional X-rays, the digital sensor is an electronic device connected to a computer. The device captures the images and then projects them on a screen instantly for both you and the dentist to view, and uses much less radiation while doing it.
Next time you walk in for a dental X-Ray, you need not really panic about its consequences as these are completely safe and without health hazards.
Panorex or Panoramic x-rays are a one of a kind radiograph that is taken outside of the patient’s jaw. Panorex x-rays can show an overall look at structures like impacted teeth, jaw anatomy, nasal sinuses, and any suspected pathology around the mouth.
Panorex films are most commonly known for being taken on young adults with orthodontic consultations or when dentists are beginning to monitor wisdom tooth development. Because smaller x-rays taken inside of the mouth cannot show dentists much of the jaw, the panorex films are the best way to do this.
An electronic health record (EHR) is a digital version of a patient's paper chart. EHRs are real-time, patient-centered records that make information available instantly and securely. Switching from paper charts to electronic medical records makes consultation and the sharing of information with other specialists easier.
Laser dentistry allows us to use a beam of laser light to remove areas of decay quickly and painlessly—no shots are needed! With a dental laser, we can treat multiple teeth in multiple areas of the mouth with fewer office visits. Children appreciate that there is no vibration or loud noise involved, making the process of treating cavities much more comfortable. Your child can return to eating and other activities right away without risk of biting their tongue or lip since they won’t need to be numb to receive treatment.
We are happy to answer any questions you have about making an appointment or your insurance coverage.
