Committed to Comfortable, Productive Dental Experiences
- Improved Communication Between Patient and Dentist
It can sometimes be difficult to understand what your dentist is talking about without seeing the problem for yourself. With the Digidoc intraoral camera, it’s possible for us to show you your teeth and gums from our point of view. These highly detailed images can also help us home in on small cracks, cavities, and other forms of dental damage that we might have overlooked otherwise. The end result is highly accurate diagnoses that you can easily wrap your head around.
The role that X-rays play in the dental environment is already common knowledge: they allow us to find issues in the jawbone or other areas that cannot be easily examined with the naked eye. However, instead of using traditional film, dentists today take digital X-rays, which can be developed much more quickly in order to produce higher quality images. This reduces the number of retakes that are necessary. Digital technology is also safer for you and the environment since there’s less radiation involved and no need to treat the images with potentially harmful chemicals.
CT/Cone Beam Scanner
We may recommend a cone beam scan instead of a regular X-ray depending on the kind of dental care you need. Cone beam scanners slowly rotate a detector around your head while taking up to 200 pictures, which can be combined into a three-dimensional model of your mouth that captures all kinds of details that might have been overlooked otherwise. This allows us to take nerve paths, unseen oral structures, and other unseen variables into account while we plan your treatment.
