X-rays are crucial to detecting cavities in the hard-to-see spaces between your teeth as well as underneath the gumline. In the past, these X-rays could only be developed in a darkroom filled with toxic chemicals, and they ended up exposing patients to very high amounts of radiation. Modern X-rays rely on digital technology, meaning that the images are produced almost immediately, and the amount of radiation that the patient is exposed to is dramatically decreased.
Have you ever found yourself having trouble understanding what your dentist was talking about? An intraoral camera is an invaluable tool for communicating with our patients. We can use it to take pictures of your mouth from various angles and then display them on a monitor. The highly detailed images aid us in detecting gum disease and other oral health issues, and they can give you a clear picture of the damage in your mouth and what needs to be done to fix it.
Cavity Detection System
Looking for cavities is a routine part of any dental checkup. However, some cavities might be harder to detect than others during the initial stages of decay. It’s essential that we find cavities as early as we can in order to treat them quickly. That’s why we’ve invested in a state-of-the-art cavity detection system. By using special instruments, we can quickly and painlessly identify areas where decay is occurring so that we can develop treatment plans for those who need them the most.
DentalVibe Injection System
If you’re undergoing a procedure that involves an oral injection of anesthesia, you might be worried about the discomfort it could cause. The DentalVibe Injection System is designed to help patients overcome these fears. While the injection is being administered, the system will cause the tissues around the site to vibrate. The vibrations reach the brain first so that it doesn’t even register the feeling of the injection itself, meaning you’ll feel no pain.
