Intraoral Cameras

Do you ever find yourself wishing that you could see what your dentist sees? Thanks to our SmartMouth intraoral camera, you can now. Thanks to this device, we can display detailed pictures of your teeth and gums on a monitor so that you can see what’s going on for yourself. Our team will be happy to point out any areas of note, and they can use these images to help you understand why you might need a particular kind of treatment in the near future.

All-Digital Dental X-Rays

The traditional film X-rays that dentists used in the past tended to expose patients to high levels of radiation, and developing the images usually took quite a bit of time. Our all-digital Planmeca X-rays are much faster and safer by comparison, cutting down radiation exposure dramatically and allowing us to develop the images quickly. Another advantage of digital dental X-rays is that it’s easier for us to store them and refer to them as needed throughout your treatment.

3D Cone Beam Imaging

The key to planning dental implant placement and a variety of other advanced procedures is to be as precise as possible. In order to do that, it’s important for us to gather as much information as we can about your mouth. Our 3D Ultra Low Does CT/Cone Beam Imaging system can create a complete model of your mouth that includes your teeth, gums, nerves, jawbone, and any other structures that need to be considered.

Digital Dental Impression System

An accurate impression of your teeth is necessary if you want to ensure that your final restoration fits as intended. However, traditional impressions can be a bit messy, which is why we’ve made the switch to digital dental impressions. All we need to do is scan your mouth and use the captured information to design a restoration that’s just the right size, shape, and color. Thanks to digital impressions, we can repair your smile in a highly natural-looking way.

Cavity Detection System

If you want to minimize the amount of dental work your smile needs, it is important to have cavities identified as early as possible. Our Cariosity Tip with Planmeca cavity detection system is an invaluable tool for catching cracks or decayed spots while they are still small and easy to overlook. Even minor issues can eventually turn into emergencies, but our advanced detection system can help ensure that cavities are taken care of promptly.

3D Printing

As part of the dental implant process, we can use our 3D printer to create a surgical guide. This makes it easier for us to see exactly where each dental implant post needs to be inserted in your jaw. It’s easier to avoid unnecessary complications during the implant process when the posts are placed as precisely as possible. The guide will be designed with the help of advanced software.
