Digital Dental X-Rays
Digital dental x-ray technology offers a valuable preventative and diagnostic tool, allowing us to create effective treatment plans. Unlike traditional x-rays that produce images on film, digital x-ray technology relies on electronic sensors to capture and save digital images on a computer. We can instantly view the images, zoom in on specific areas, and evaluate your oral health with exceptional clarity. Digital x-ray technology reduces radiation exposure by up to 90 percent compared to traditional x-rays.
An intraoral camera is a small, advanced diagnostic tool about the size of a dental mirror. It features a high-intensity light source and a camera that allows us to see close-up, incredibly sharp images of teeth on a computer screen or iPad. Intraoral cameras help us identify problems such as cavities, cracked or worn teeth, and damaged dental restorations. Being able to show you exactly what we are seeing can help you make informed decisions about your dental treatments.
Digital Intraoral Scanner
Intraoral scanning offers a modern approach to capturing full-mouth digital impressions. A handheld intraoral scanner quickly and comfortably captures full-color, high-resolution digital images in real-time that we can view and enlarge. We can also take 3D impressions of the oral cavity without gooey, messy putty. The digital models are then used to fabricate quality, precise dental restorations.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous oxide sedation, also known as laughing gas, is a mild form of sedation that helps ease anxiety during dental appointments. It is beneficial to patients with extreme anxiety, dental phobia, a sensitive gag reflex, highly sensitive teeth, or decreased sensitivity to local anesthetics. It is also helpful for patients requiring lengthy dental procedures, children who may otherwise not sit still for long, or patients with special physical, cognitive, or behavioral needs. If you are anxious about an upcoming dental appointment, make sure to ask about our nitrous oxide sedation.
