Our office uses the latest in digital x-ray technology. Digital x-rays offer a detailed image of your entire mouth and also offer up to 80% less radiation than traditional film x-rays.
X-rays play an invaluable role in the diagnosis of dental problems, as well as provide a clear picture for a dentist to accurately diagnose and provide the necessary treatment.
We place a small sensor in your mouth. The sensor is connected to a computer by a thin wire. Next, an x-ray beam is sent through your teeth and into the sensor, which records the image of your teeth and sends it to the computer. The sensor can then be repositioned to image other sections of your teeth.
The digital dental x-ray system is more sensitive than dental x-ray film systems, so your exposure to x-rays is cut by as much as 90 percent. The large and color-enhanced images let you see what your dentist sees, so it's easier for you to understand how your dentist will treat your teeth. Your dental checkups take less time, and it's fun to watch this system work! Most patients are amazed.
The custom perio tray is fabricated to fit precisely over your teeth and gum tissue. The special seal helps to place medications into the gingival crevice or periodontal pocket. Your dentist will determine what medication is most appropriate for your perio treatment needs and how often to wear the perio tray. It is convenient, comfortable, and easy to use.
The Zoom Whitening System is available in our office. This system can whiten teeth by an average of nine shades lighter in around an hour. Anyone who wants to brighten their smile can take advantage of this system, even individuals who have food, tobacco, or tetracycline stains can benefit from this procedure.
