We use a variety of dental technology to assist us in providing for your dental care. Dental technology can help minimize human error, and it can also reduce time spent in dental appointments by reducing dental procedure times. The following are some of the dental technology that we currently use:
- Digital X-rays
- Soft Tissue Laser
- Digital Pano
With these digital technologies, we can put your mind at ease about your dental procedure. You will be able to follow along as we explain the results of your examination.
The digital X-ray is different from traditional X-rays because the process uses a flat electronic pad or sensor as opposed to the standard X-ray film. The image is uploaded into a computer, where it can be viewed right in the examination room.
Soft Tissue Laser
Lasers can be used in a variety of dental procedures, and they allow for an added level of precision removing tissue from partially exposed wisdom teeth to shaping gum and bone tissue.
One of the biggest benefits of technology is that it allows for paperless transactions between our offices, our patients, and the insurance companies. This also makes for an environmentally friendly business.
The process of making Invisalign aligners involves 3D imaging to get a tailored fit. This process will help us to be sure your aligners are effective in treating your orthodontic condition.
We use the Diagnodent technology to examine teeth for damage or bacteria. In this process, we shine a handheld laser probe into the mouth. Cracks and bacteria will give off more fluorescent light than normal teeth will.
We use panoramic X-ray techniques to see images of the entire mouth. This technique is performed by using a special machine that circles your head while taking a digital image.
At Orange Door Dental Group we will put our dental technology to work for you!
