Intraoral Cameras

Sometimes it can be hard to picture what’s going on inside your mouth relying on just the descriptions that your dentist gives you. Fortunately, we can show you the issues affecting your teeth and gums firsthand thanks to our intraoral cameras. These wand-like devices allow us to take pictures of your smile from a variety of angles, allowing you to get a good look at any problem areas.

All-Digital Dental X-Rays

X-rays are invaluable when it comes to diagnosing unseen dental problems. However, traditional X-rays come with a number of drawbacks, such as radiation exposure and lengthy development time. Our team uses digital X-rays instead; the images they capture are available for viewing right away, and they produce far less radiation. On top of that, high-quality digital X-rays can help us catch issues while they are still in their early stages.

3D Cone Beam Imaging

It’s important to be as precise as possible when placing dental implants or performing certain other advanced treatments. Our 3D cone beam imaging system can combine multiple pictures of your mouth into a single comprehensive model that can be viewed from any angle. This allows us to gather important information that could make all the difference for certain procedures; for example, we can figure out if there are any blood vessels or nerve pathways located around the areas where implant posts need to be inserted.

Digital Dental Impressions

There’s no such thing as one-size-fits-all dentistry. Crowns, bridges, and veneers all need to be carefully personalized according to the needs of the patient’s unique smile. With our iTero digital impression system, we can scan your teeth and gums in order to create a three-dimensional model of your mouth. Thanks to this model, the lab technicians responsible for making your restoration can ensure that the final product looks natural and fits like it should. Taking a digital dental impression means that there’s no uncomfortable, unpleasant-tasting putty to worry about.

Cavity Detection System

The earlier a cavity is caught, the easier it is to have it treated before it can lead to severe oral health issues. However, some cavities can be all too easy to overlook while they’re still small. That’s where our cavity detection system comes in. It can help us find decayed areas that might have been missed otherwise. As soon as we discover that a cavity is present inside your mouth, we can start putting together a treatment plan for restoring your oral health.
