Below your gum line, all types of dental problems can develop, including cavities, gum disease, and even oral cancer. Usually, they can only be noticed once they become serious! Thankfully, we use digital X-rays in our office to help us catch these issues and more way before they can cause lasting damage. These X-rays are extremely sharp, take only seconds to develop, and they even emit 90% LESS radiation compared to traditional film.
Rather than just shining a bright light into your mouth during your regular checkups, we can use a small intraoral camera to take high-resolution images of your entire oral cavity. These help us see your teeth and gums much more clearly compared to a traditional visual exam, allowing us to spot minor decay and infections earlier than ever. We can even show you your own images so you’re always on the same page as your dentist.
Digital Impression System
Dental impressions allow us to create a working model of a patient’s teeth and bite so we can personalize their treatment and ensure it looks great and functions seamlessly. We’ve fully digitized the process so we can save our patients from having to bite into a mold filled with gooey putty. Now, we simply scan the teeth with a small handheld device, and after a few minutes, a highly detailed and accurate impression is generated on a nearby monitor.
