Thanks to advancements in the field of dentistry over the past several decades, diagnosing oral health concerns and keeping your teeth healthy couldn’t be easier. At Healthy Smiles Dental Care, we take full advantage of the latest technology. This ensures that your smile is always taken care of.
Intraoral cameras are small, handheld devices that are about the size of a pen. Despite this, they can take highly detailed photos of your smile and allow us to better examine difficult-to-reach areas of the mouth. It’s also the perfect way for you to stay engaged during your exam.
With dental X-rays, we’re able to gather relevant information about your jaw and the bones that make up the rest of your mouth. Since they are digital, it’s easy to view results quickly, rather than wait for a picture to process in a darkroom.
When we need a more complete image of your mouth than what an X-ray can provide, we bring you to our cone beam scanner. This technology combines multiple images into a single 3D image, meaning it can be used to plan dental implant treatments as well as create oral appliances.
Have you ever needed dental impressions taken in the past? Chances are you probably don’t have the most positive memory of the experience. With our digital impression system, we can gather everything we need about your smile, including the alignment and shape. The difference? There’s no need to use gray and goopy dental putty in the process. Not only that, but digital impressions tend to be more accurate, which means a lower risk of error resulting in us needing to make a new impression anyway.
