Technology

Hygenist Striving to meet our patients’ needs and comfort, we do so with the help of the newest technological advancements the dental profession has to offer.

  • Digital X-ray

Rather than using cumbersome film, we use a digital sensor to take X-rays of your mouth. This sensor uses significantly less radiation to produce highly detailed images that are transferred instantly to our computer screens. From there we can magnify, rotate, and color code each X-ray to best explain the issues behind your dental health.

  • Intra-Oral Camera

A picture is worth a thousand words – especially when it comes to your dental health! To aid in diagnoses and record keeping, we use hand held cameras to take magnified and detailed photos of your mouth, which can be displayed on our computer screens and TV monitors so you can see what our doctors are seeing.

  • Diagnodent

The diagnodent aids the dentist in determining if a tooth has a cavity in the pits and grooves of the biting surface. It is a laser instrument that uses a fluorescent light to scan your tooth for any decay. If a cavity is present on the tooth, the diagnodent will send a signal back letting the dentist know. This is a painless and fast way of determining if you have a cavity.

  • Computer Monitors

Every operatory room comes equipped with two TVs – one on the wall to show and explain your x-rays and one for the dentist and staff to enter your current dental treatment.
