How Technology Makes Our Dentistry Better
- More Accurate, Comprehensive Diagnoses
- Improved Communication with Our Patients
- Highly Detailed, Accurate Images of Your Smile
Just looking at your teeth won’t tell us everything we need to know about your oral health. X-rays are an invaluable, necessary tool for detecting decay that would otherwise remain unseen. By using digital radiography instead of traditional film, we can dramatically shorten the development process; instead of needing to spend an extensive amount of time in a darkroom, we can have the final image ready in a matter of seconds. Digital X-rays also emit an extremely minimal amount of radiation compared to traditional X-rays.
We can describe the state of your mouth to you, but an intraoral camera can make everything much clearer and help you learn more about how your smile works. An intraoral camera is shaped like a wand and can be used to take hundreds of pictures of your teeth and gums at a time. These images can be displayed on a monitor so that we can refer to them while explaining our findings. We hope that this gives you some additional insight into why specific treatments are being recommended for you.
