Dental technologies have changed dramatically since we opened our doors in 1977. One of the most significant changes in that time has been the use of computer-aided imaging technology. Here are just a couple of the technologies we use:
Digital X-rays have replaced film-based X-rays just as digital cameras have replaced film cameras. These computer-aided X-ray systems use significantly less X-ray radiation to produce images that are clearer and more detailed than images using film. Plus, we can bring up your X-rays on a monitor and zoom in on specific areas, making it easier to diagnose problems.
A panoramic X-ray is a digital X-ray that takes an image while revolving around your jaw. The resulting image provides a panoramic view of your entire jaw, letting us detect alignment issues, choose locations for implants, and detect signs of disease and decay.
