iTero Digital Impressions
The phrase “dental impressions” can cause some people to grimace, as they’re likely thinking about an unpleasant-tasting putty that needs to be held in the mouth for a long time. But at our dental office, taking impressions most often means using our iTero scanner. Which means, no goop in your mouth!
An intraoral camera is a special sort of camera that can give patients an opportunity to see what their own mouths look like from a dentist’s point of view. Our Lensiora® intraoral cameras are small, wand-like devices that easily fit inside your mouth so that we can take detailed pictures of your teeth and gums. All of these images can be displayed on our chairside monitor for your viewing convenience so that you can see any issues for yourself and ask questions about your oral health.
Digital X-rays aren’t like the traditional X-rays that some of us might remember. For one thing, they're a radiation-free way of sumpplementing other X-rays. For another, the images are ready to be viewed immediately and don’t have to undergo a lengthy development process in a dark room. And finally, being digital means, we can keep them on a computer instead of in a crowded filing cabinet, letting us pull them up at any time.
3D Cone Beam Imaging
Regular X-rays show a two-dimensional image of your smile, which doesn’t always give us all the information we might need for a more advanced procedure. Our CareStream cone beam scanner uses a cone-shaped X-ray beam to capture images of your teeth as well as oral soft tissues and other structures in your mouth in order to create a detailed 3D model that can aid us in planning your care and identifying potential complications that need to be taken into account.
Cavity Detection System
All dentists are thoroughly trained to look for decay, of course, but can’t catch every cavity just by looking. Our cavity detection system includes low radiation digital X-rays, 3-D cone beam digital imagery, and NIRI, which is an infrared light that is a radiation-free diagnostic laser. This system helps us find otherwise hidden signs of tooth decay so we can provide more conservative, simpler, and lower-cost treatment.
