Technology can improve the dentistry you receive. When we see some type of technology that allows us to communicate better with our patients, provide more accurate or comfortable care, or allow us to provide more precise results, we invest in it in order to give you the very best.
Here are some of the ways we use technology so that you can enjoy the high-quality dental care you deserve.
X-rays help our dentists see what is not visible with the naked eye alone. We use digital x-rays because they are safe - up to 80 percent less radiation than old film x-rays. They also give us high-resolution images that our dentists can zoom in on, change exposure, or adjust contrast to give them the ideal image for diagnosis.
We recommend periodic x-rays based on your oral health history and your personal needs.
Televisions in Rooms
Each of our treatment rooms has a television - a 40-inch LCD monitor. We can show you images regarding your health, but we can also use it to allow you to view your favorite television shows while you receive dental care. This can help you relax and pass the time, while we give you the world-class dentistry you deserve.
An intraoral camera is a small, handheld device that easily fits into your mouth and can snap a high-resolution image or video. We use this, primarily, to show you exactly what we see, so we can do a better job of describing your conditions and possible treatment options. We can also use these images to provide additional documentation for insurance claims or to refer to a specialist's office.
We display these images right on our treatment room monitors so you can see them right away!
