Digital Technology Gives Us Increased Precision
You will be introduced to our many dental technologies beginning with your first visit. That appointment will start with a comprehensive review of your situation and then some X-rays. Nowadays we use digital X-rays, which emit less radiation than traditional X-rays and give us more precise images.
We also have a CBCT 3D scanner that allows us to take 3D X-rays of your oral cavity. This technology makes it much easier for us to diagnose emerging dental problems and even plan out future procedures like placing dental implants.
Another specialized tool we use during exams is the intraoral camera. With this camera, we’ll take pictures around the mouth and then show you exactly what we see inside your mouth.
We Have Dental Laser Technology
Gum disease is the #1 cause of tooth loss in adults and is far more common than you might imagine. When one of our patients exhibits signs of gum disease, we can spare them the ordeal of traditional gum surgery. This surgery works well enough but requires the use of scalpels and stitches. At North Oaks Dental, we’re using laser therapy to treat gum issues. The laser evaporates the gum infection and allows the teeth and gums to reattach without stitches. The healing happens faster this way too!
Goopy Impressions Are A Thing Of The Past
Many dental offices in the area still rely on goopy materials to get an accurate impression for a dental crown or a bridge. The problem with the impression material is that the majority of patients find it untolerable, and it can even trigger a gag reflex. Rather than using goopy materials, we now have a digital scanner. The digital scanner allows us to get the perfect digital impression of the area in question. It’s important to get the perfect impression because a better impression means a better restoration. A restoration that fits poorly or may fail much earlier than one that fits perfectly.
