CAD-CAM—Same Day Crowns
We now offer same-day crowns, which as the name implies, are made in our office and fitted on your tooth all in one visit! Same-day crowns are made possible thanks to computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM). Read more about same day crowns!
Cone Beam X-ray
Our surgical center features the latest state-of-the art technology, including 3D imaging and digital impressions. Our 3D cone beam imaging system allows us to support a high level of patient care, as this system offers 3D computer-generated scans in order to provide a detailed and advanced look at the teeth, nerves, bone and tissues, with cross-sectional and 3D views. This provides critical information that won't be available with a traditional "flat" dental x-ray.
Our 3D imaging technology will allow us to provide you with a much more comprehensive evaluation and consultation, at which time our surgeons will:
Digital Panographic X-ray
Digital radiography has greatly enhanced the practice of dentistry. It allows the patient and the doctor to see images of the teeth in higher resolution on a large format for easier detection of problems, all while decreasing the radiation exposure to the patient. The process we use further defines the radiograph, resulting in clinically meaningful images that are sharp, detailed and rich in contrast.
Images are available instantly after exposure, eliminating the wait and effort spent developing and mounting x-rays. If an image needs to be retaken, it can be done immediately. Digital format also allows us to send and receive your images electronically, allowing for a faster consultation with your dentist.
X-rays give us a clear view of what we can't see such as decay between the teeth. An intraoral camera gives the patient a view of what the dentist sees. An intraoral camera is a device that is about the size of a toothbrush. Broken fillings, fractured teeth, decay or any other dental problem can be viewed so that we can discuss with you any treatment needed. With a clear understanding of your dental needs we can decide together what the best treatment is for you.
