Our Office Uses the State of the Art Digital Radiography
- Significantly Less Radiation: Digital X-Rays give off up to 90% less radiation than regular film X-Rays.
- Environmentally Friendly: With digital X-Rays, there aren’t any toxic chemicals to expose employees or patients to or to dispose of.
- Instant Photos: Digital X-Ray images are available instantly to view with a patient or to electronically send to specialists or insurance companies
How Digital Dental X-Rays Work
We place a tiny sensor in your mouth which is connected to a computer by a thin wire. Next, an X-ray beam records the image of your teeth and sends it to the computer. The sensor can then be repositioned to photograph other sections of your mouth.
Why Digital Dental X-Rays are Better
The digital X-ray system has more sensitivity than regular dental X-ray film systems, so your exposure to X-rays is reduced by as much as 90 percent. The large, color-enhanced images let you see what your dentist sees, so it's easier for you to make an informed decision. Your fees don't include payment for extras such as photo chemicals, film, processing or film storage. Also of great importance, the used photo chemicals and film are not polluting our environment. Your dental checkups take less time, and it's fun to watch this system work! Most patients are amazed by this wonderful technology.
Cosmetic Imaging Envision Yourself Before and After Cosmetic Dentistry with Imaging!
Our latest innovation allows you to see what your new smile may look like BEFORE you proceed with treatment! This advanced software helps the dentist determine the changes that are possible with new bonded ceramic restorations. We can lengthen, re-shape, realign and even lighten the color of your teeth to demonstrate possible cosmetic changes.
Whether your looking for that Hollywood smile or just a more natural appearance, with our Cosmetic Imaging Service we have taken the anxiety out of that difficult decision. Our patients can visualize their dream smiles before any treatment is started.
People rarely have a clear idea of the actual state of their dental health. Even with lights and mirrors it’s hard to see what the dentist can – that is, until now.
We use intraoral cameras, so during your check ups, you can sit comfortably back in the chair and get ready to learn about what’s going on in your mouth. The dentist or hygienist will place a pen-sized, camera into your mouth. Covered with a disposable plastic sheath to prevent contamination, the wand simply takes a video of the inside of your mouth and transmits the images to a computer screen that you can comfortably view from your dental chair. Aha! We can point out problem areas and explain recommendations for treatment, so you’ll become an informed partner in your dental treatment instead of a clueless bystander.
Although seeing your dental problems may seem a bit overwhelming at first, consider the experience the first step toward a healthier smile. The camera can reveal the early stages of serious problems, giving you the opportunity to prevent small problems before they worsen. This is especially helpful with gum disease and other conditions that cause serious damage without causing pain. Furthermore, the camera can also show you how your regular home hygiene routine is working. The dental hygienist or dentist can recommend different ways to improve your home care based on their findings.
