We utilize digital x-rays for efficient imaging because of safety and convenience. Digital x-rays use less radiation and are extremely safe and quick to use. Patients can even preview their desired results through the x-rays and get a better idea of what's going on inside their mouth. Without the use of x-rays, many oral issues would go undetected and untreated, which may lead to a more severe complication.
Dental x-rays can help our dentists determine the following conditions:
- Dental abscesses
- Loss of bone structure
- Cancerous tumors
- Severe tooth decay
- Abnormal tooth growth
- Issues inside the tooth
Before the invention of 3-D digital imaging, patients had to deal with messy impressions and a mouth full of goop. More recently, 3-D technology has advanced rapidly and has made our 3-D models more precise and accurate. For procedures such as dental implants, the use of Cone Beam 3D scans can be completed as quick as under one minute.
Another revolutionary technological advancement to hit the field of dentistry is the use of laser technology to detect decay deep inside the tooth. It's an extremely versatile tool and can be used in combination with many different procedures.
Laser technology may also be used for the following:
- Teeth whitening
- Tumor removal
- Reshaping soft tissue
- Treating gum disease
