How Technology Makes Our Dentistry Better
- More Accurate, Precise Diagnoses
- Improved Patient-Dentist Communication
- State-of-the-Art Treatment Planning
Are you having a hard time imagining what your smile is going to look like after you get veneers or a crown? Digital imaging will take the guesswork out of the process. We can alter a picture of your teeth to simulate the effects of the treatment. This is both a useful tool for planning the procedure and a way for you to decide whether you’re truly comfortable pursuing certain types of treatment. If you’d like, we can give you a copy of the image so that you can give your loved ones a sneak peek of your future grin.
Naturally, X-rays remain as vital as ever when it comes to diagnosing dental problems that would otherwise go unseen, but the way they are taken nowadays has been completely transformed thanks to modern digital technology. For one thing, the images can be developed much faster and in much cleaner detail than traditional X-rays. Also, digital X-rays emit 90% less radiation than traditional X-rays, meaning you and your loved ones can complete the process without worry.
Have you ever felt like you were in the dark about what was going on inside your own mouth? An intraoral camera gives us a way to show you exactly what we’ve found during our examination. The images captured by a digital camera can capture and transfer high-resolution images of the teeth and gums to monitor in the treatment room so that you can see exactly what we see. That way, you’ll have a full understanding of the state of your oral health and what you can do to protect it.
Wax Up Models
When planning a complex or cosmetic case, we don’t want to leave anything to chance. In many cases, we’ll create a wax-up model of your jaws and teeth to work on in order to test the viability of certain complex treatments. Having a detailed, accurate model of your mouth to work with will allow us to design prosthetics, veneers, and other forms of dental work that fit as properly as possible. This also gives us a chance to show you what each proposed solution will look like so that you can decide whether or not it’s truly right for your smile. After making any necessary adjustments, we’ll send the model to the dental laboratory so that they have it as reference when creating a dental restoration for you.
