Images from a high definition intraoral camera can show tooth decay, visible tooth cracks/craze lines, leaky/defective old fillings/crowns, gum health/disease and several other conditions in the oral cavity. These images enhance the ability of the patient to view these conditions and make an informed decision about his/her own treatment. This allows the patients to participate in their own treatment and positively affect treatment outcome.
The intraoral cameras have advanced lenses placed inside a small head that conveniently takes high definition images in the mouth. These images are conveniently taken during a comprehensive visit exam within 1-2 minutes. Pre and post operative images can also be compared to see the treatment outcomes.
Digital radiography is a type of X-ray imaging that uses digital X-ray sensors to replace traditional photographic X-ray film, producing enhanced computer images of teeth, gums, and other oral structures and conditions. There are several advantages of using digital radiographs.
3D printing has various applications in the world of dentistry. The use of 3D printing makes dental treatments more efficient and less painful. We use 3D printers to create surgical guides for dental implants that help place the implants faster and more accurately. With the help of this advanced printing technology, we can also create affordable temporary crowns and dentures for our patients while they wait for their permanent ones. 3D printing has made dental treatments more personalized and fast.
Our in-house 3D printing setup helps us save on our lab fees, and we pass these savings onto our patients. As such, all our patients can enjoy more affordable restorative treatments. The biggest advantage of 3D printing technology is that it allows you to get a glimpse of your treatment results. We can simply print your crowns or dentures for a trial smile to ensure you are satisfied with it. If you want to make any changes, we will modify it and print it again. 3D printing allows us to print different details to give you the smile you desire.
A dental cone beam CT (CBCT) scanner is an advanced dental x-ray machine that produces a 3-dimensional (3D) scan of your jaws, teeth, and joints in a single image. The 3D scan helps us to diagnose any dental issues accurately and provide efficient treatment. The technology is especially helpful in dental implant surgery where it ensures maximum predictability and safety.
In many cases, a 2D x-ray does not help locate the exact source of the pain. But with a 3D x-ray; even the most difficult to locate infections can be spotted. We also use CBCT scanners for visualizing infected nerves for a root canal and to perform an airway analysis for patients suffering from sleep apnea.
We understand that radiation from a digital scanner is a huge cause of concern. We have selected the best scanner that enables us to take a full jaw x-ray with minimum radiation. As the scanner allows us to select the specific site of examination, the radiation levels are further decreased.
