We use digital x-rays that have the advantage of delivering high quality, immediate images. In our office, each of our 4 patient rooms is equipped with a digital x-ray machine and computer so that patients can have a more comfortable and efficient experience in our office.
For younger children who can not fit the digital sensor in their mouths, we use more comfortable, paper-thin films.
In our office, we have our own panoramic x-ray machine, which allows us to capture one large, broad image of your jaws, all teeth, sinuses, nasal area, and TMJ's. This x-ray is not used to find cavities; rather, it helps to identify problem areas that can not be captured with regular x-rays like: impacted wisdom teeth, jaw fractures, TMJ problems, bone abnormalities (i.e. tumors, abnormal growths, etc.), and infections.
DENTAL MICROSCOPE FOR ENDODONTICS
Our endodontist, Dr. Jeff, utilizes a special dental microscope when completing his procedures to ensure the highest quality work. Though not a requirement, Dr. Jeff has been trained to work with the most up-to-date technologies during his residency, and will continue to implement this technique with all of our patients.
