The intraoral camera is a diagnostic dental tool that allows us to detect potential problems within the mouth. The tiny intraoral camera takes pictures of your teeth, gums and the inside of your mouth, and displays the magnified images on a computer screen. This allows Dr. Sanders or Dr. Loe to clearly point out problems such as cracks and decays so you are able to see and understand why treatment may be necessary. The accompanying software also provides clear and accurate data to ensure that the best treatment options can be selected.
Chair Side Computers
Our patients have enjoyed the many benefits brought about by our fully computerized and networked treatment rooms. Having chair-side computers in every treatment room allows for all intraoral and extra-oral photography, patient records, written communication, and clinical information to be shared between the doctor and treatment areas instantly.
Snore Guards – Silent Nite
Silent Nite is a custom-made snore prevention device that is thin, flexible, and comfortable to wear. It has been proven successful in combating the disruptive, unhealthy effects of snoring and sleep apnea. In addition, the device minimizes stiff jaw joints, reduces the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and ADHD, is non-invasive, cost-effective, and easy to care for.
The Cavitron Ultrasonic Cleaner allows our hygienists to remove tartar from above and below the gum line without having to scrape it off, as they previously had to. With this new technology, we are able to remove tartar gently and comfortably using high frequency sound waves.
Similar to the medical CT scan, Panorex Imaging takes three-dimensional images of the tooth and its surrounding oral structures. The clear, sharp images produced allow us to clearly see the tooth and its root structure as well as the jawbone, nerves and soft tissue. Since we are able to make out these internal structures, we are able to detect, diagnose and treat issues while they are small, before they cause significant damage. The Panorex also allows us to monitor any potential problems and make informed decisions about if, and when, treatment is needed.
