Digital radiography is one of the most important new advances that dentistry has seen in quite some time. It has the capability to reduce the exposure of radiation to the patient by up to 80 percent, compared to film-based systems, while increasing our diagnostic proficiency which has astounding implications on your care. Digital x-rays allow us to store patient images, and enable us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies as well.
An intraoral camera is a very small camera that allows us to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth, and gums, in order for us to accuratley make a diagnosis. With these clear, defined, enlarged images, we are able to see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations
Digital impressions are a cutting-edge piece of technology that allow dentists to create a computer-generated replica of your teeth and gums using lasers and other optical scanning devices. The digital technology captures clear and highly accurate impression data in mere minutes, without the need for traditional impression materials that some patients find inconvenient and messy. The impression information then is transferred to a computer and used to create restorations such as crowns, inlay's or veneers.
The Osstell helps to determine implant stability and to assess the progress of osseointegration (binding of the implant to the bone) without jeopardizing the healing process. It is a fast and noninvasive system that provides the accurate and objective information needed to proceed with implant restoration with confidence.
These lasers are ideal for procedures involving cutting or contouring soft tissues. Diode lasers are capable of creating precision cuts in gingiva and other soft tissues while also eliminating bleeding at the site and reducing the healing time and pain for the patient.
