Cone Beam 3D Imaging
Our Cone Beam 3D Imaging machine offers our patients images quickly. Our dentists are able to diagnose our patients better, catching problems sooner than they would be able to with only traditional imaging. It allows us to view your teeth, roots, airways, and even sinuses in less than ten seconds. We are also able to monitor TMD.
By using Cone Beam 3D imaging, we are able to diagnose and treat our patients quicker so that they don’t have to spend as much time in our office. We can view the images in just a few seconds instead of minutes, so we can start treatment right away!
X-Rays are used to examine the inside of your teeth. We are hoping to be able to catch any problems that we can’t see with the naked eye! Using radiology, we are able to see which teeth are developing cavities. We may also see some teeth or gum areas that may require some extra work.
We are dedicated to giving our patients the high quality care they deserve. We are proud to offer the latest technologies and equipment to keep their mouths healthy. One way we do this is by offering our patients the intraoral camera. They always say that a picture is worth a thousand words. We use our camera for just that reason.
We can take a picture and show you what is going on with your mouth. You may not believe you have dental disease until you see the pictures. Our camera is also very helpful when we are tracking the disease’s progress. We can take before and after pictures to determine if the treatment is working. We can see how far your mouth has come and determine if more treatment or a whole different type of treatment is needed.
If you decide to get a complicated procedure, a picture may help you see what you really can’t see otherwise.
iTero 3D Scanner
One of our newest pieces of equipment is our iTero 3D scanner. It allows us to take images of your smile. We can also use it to show you the results you can get with Invisalign®, which is invisible braces.
One of the benefits of collecting images with our scanner is that you won’t have to get impressions made, which can be quite unpleasant. You won’t have to deal with the unpleasant taste of the material. Instead, the scanning process is quite comfortable, and you can breathe normally during the procedure.
The procedure is also safe because there is no radiation. Instead, it uses a laser to form the images.
