People seldom have a clear idea of the actual status of their dental health. Even with lights and mirrors, it’s difficult to see the back and sides of your mouth. But intraoral cameras have changed all of that. Now you sit comfortably back in the chair while Dr. Morgan, or a hygienist, inserts a small, pen-sized, camera-tipped wand into your mouth. The camera takes video of your teeth and gums and transmits the images to a chairside monitor where you can see your dental concerns. Together, you and your dentist can view every detail of your oral health.
Computer Smile Imaging
At your initial smile makeover consultation, we will take digital photographs of your smile and enhance them with imaging software, showing you how your new smile could look.
Laser Cavity Detection System
We use DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection to accurately find and diagnose hidden tooth decay. This process is safe, easy, and comfortable. More and more patients place value on healthy and attractive teeth and early detection offers the best way to find and treat dental caries before they become a larger problem. DIAGNOdent detects even the smallest lesions, enabling you to protect and preserve more of your natural tooth structure.
Digital x-rays reduce a patient’s exposure to radiation by up to 90%. The x-ray images are also immediately available to view on a chairside monitor in each operatory. No more waiting for x-rays to develop, or splotchy, inaccurate films. Digital x-rays offer efficiency, effectiveness, and safety.
Each operatory boasts chairside monitors for viewing dental education material such as x-rays and intraoral photos, as well as your favorite cable TV stations! We also offer iPods with headphones for your comfort and convenience.
