If you have a smartphone, you know that innovators keep making incredible progress in technology all the time. The field of dentistry is no different. Our team is continually trained how to work with the latest technology to make your dental visits more convenient, more comfortable, and more efficient. We are proud to invest in some of the most advanced technology dentistry has to offer to make your smile as healthy and beautiful as it can be.
When it comes to diagnosing dental issues, X-rays are essential. They reveal what’s going on beneath the surface, helping us identify decay and other problems where the naked eye can’t see. Years ago, X-rays took a while to develop. The dental assistant had to work with hazardous chemicals in a dark room, but digital technology has changed everything. Now, within seconds your X-rays are on a screen, ready for review. Plus, you’re exposed to much less radiation. Needless to say, digital X-rays are much faster, safer, and more convenient for everyone!
Sometimes, it can be difficult to understand what is going on inside your mouth because you’re unable to see it for yourself. That’s where having an intraoral camera at each operatory comes in handy! We can show you exactly where the issue is, explain your treatment options or provide instructions for at-home care, and work with you to determine the course that best suits your smile. In other words, we empower you to become an equal partner in your oral health.
If you have received a dental restoration or an oral appliance in the past, chances are you’ve experienced traditional impressions. What a goopy, uncomfortable mess! Instead of making you gag on the putty-like material, we utilize the iTero scanner. This small device easily fits inside your mouth and digitally scans your oral cavity. Within just a minute or two, we have a complete digital model of your smile, from which we can plan your Invisalign treatment or design your completely custom dental crown.
