Intraoral Cameras

If you want to stay engaged with your own dental care, naturally you need to be able to stay informed about what’s going on inside your mouth. With our intraoral camera, we can take a number of high-quality images that highlight the current condition of your teeth and gums so that we can clearly explain our diagnoses and show exactly why certain treatments might need to be performed to deal with a current problem or prevent a future one.

All-Digital X-Rays

Digital X-rays have been adopted by many dental offices across the country because they’re much safer than traditional X-rays. They don’t call for hazardous chemicals to develop them, and they produce around 85% less radiation than regular X-rays. The images they produce are very clear and highly detailed, allowing us to pinpoint problem areas in much less time and keep track of any developments in your jawbone so that we can act quickly if there’s a problem.

CBCT Scanner

While a regular dental X-ray is excellent if we need to get a closer look at a few teeth, our CBCT scanner allows us to see all of your dental anatomy in a single image. It captures images from multiple angles and pieces them together to create a 3D model that includes both rows of teeth, the upper and lower jaws, and many adjacent structures. This helps us see the big picture when it comes to your oral health as well as focus on small details. We can use it to establish a baseline when you come to see us for the first time, or it can enable Dr. Patel to better plan and personalize more advanced procedures (like dental implant placement).

Intraoral Scanner

Before we give someone a denture, veneer, or crown, we need to take an impression of their bite to ensure it will fit and look perfectly. In the past, this meant the patient would need to bite into a mold filled with messy, odd-tasting dental putty to create a physical model. Now, we can simply scan the mouth in a matter of minutes to generate a perfect digital recreation of the teeth. It’s faster, more comfortable, more accurate, and doesn’t make a mess like the old way, saving time for both you and our team.
