In order to offer you convenient dental care that’s also thorough and precise, we’ve equipped our office with the most advanced technology in our field. That way, you can spend less time in the treatment chair and more time enjoying your healthy, rejuvenated smile. To learn more about the advanced instruments we use, read on below.
Our intraoral camera is a hand-held imaging device that we can place in your mouth to gain a detailed, magnified view of areas that are hard to see with the naked eye. It’s attached to a chairside monitor as well, allowing us to thoroughly explain the treatment and how it’s going to address the issue.
In the past, dentists used film X-rays to be able to see whether there are any problems developing beneath your gum line. Today, we utilize all-digital X-rays, which are safer, faster, and allow us to make precise diagnoses due to their enhanced resolution.
Our CT/cone beam scanner is an advanced instrument that allows us to capture a panoramic, 3D image of your mouth and facial structure. This helps us precisely plan advanced treatments like dental implant placements and tooth extractions.
Traditional impressions are typically taken with a piece of putty that causes some patients to gag. Fortunately, at Healthy Smiles Dental Care, we take digital impressions, which makes the process more comfortable, easier, and faster. The system captures a precise blueprint of your dental structure, so your sportsguard or protective nightguard fits perfectly.
