Our dental office wants to make each of your appointments more comfortable, precise, and faster. That’s why we’ve equipped our dental office with several advanced dental gadgets that enhance our diagnostic abilities and allow us to create highly successful, detail-oriented treatments to improve your oral health. To learn more about some of the instruments we use, read below.
To help us spot hard-to-see symptoms of oral health problems that are hidden in nooks and crannies of your mouth, we utilize our intraoral camera. It’s a small, handheld wand with the camera on the tip of it that produces a magnified, clearer view of wherever we point it at. It’s also attached to a large, chairside monitor that allows you to see real-time footage of the issue as well!
Dentists used to rely on film X-ray imaging systems to capture images of the area of your mouth that lies below your gums. Today, we utilize digital X-ray imaging to make this process safer and faster. By producing clearer images, we’re able to more easily spot harmful oral health issues that could be forming that aren’t visible to the naked eye, like cysts and impacted teeth.
Used to plan dental implant treatment, TMJ dysfunction diagnoses, and in a variety of other helpful ways, our cone beam CT scanner is an X-ray imaging device that offers a unique view of your teeth, oral tissues, nerve pathways, and bone. It easily captures a panoramic view of your mouth and facial structure within just minutes.
Whether you’re looking to balance out your particularly gummy smile, your child needs a frenectomy to allow them to latch during breastfeeding, or you’re having dental implant surgery, you’ll likely encounter our soft tissue laser. This advanced device creates a concentrated beam of light that eliminates the need for scalpels and sutures and makes oral treatments a breeze.
