Digital X-Rays

In the past, dental x-rays were analog, meaning they were taken on film that needed to be developed in a dark room. Today, digital dentistry and other technological advances are becoming increasingly common in dental offices.

The advantages of digital are making them the standard of care in dental health.

  • They expose patients to significantly less radiation, making them a safer alternative.
  • Your dentist can immediately view them on a computer screen, which makes it easier to accurately diagnose dental conditions, such as periodontal disease or infection.
  • Digital data can be easily stored and transmitted electronically, which is more efficient than film-based storage and transmission.

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CT)

Cone beam CT (CBCT) is one of the new technologies revolutionizing dental procedures. CBCT uses a cone-shaped x-ray beam to create a 3D image of the teeth and jawbone. Dental professionals can use this image to plan dental implants, assess wisdom teeth development, and diagnose TMJ disorders.

CBCT images are much more detailed than traditional images and can be viewed from any angle. As a result, dental professionals can easily understand the patient’s needs and develop the best treatment plan.

CBCT is a safe and effective way to obtain accurate images of the teeth and jawbone. It is an essential tool that helps improve oral healthcare quality.

Same-Day Crowns

The latest technology in CAD/CAM (computer-assisted design and computer-assisted manufacture) allows us to produce same-day dental restorations for our patients. The crown is made from a ceramic-like material designed to match the color of your natural teeth. This process only requires one appointment for placement, and it eliminates the need to use putty in the patient’s mouth to generate a mold for the dental lab.
