PLANMECA Intraoral Camera
While X-rays provide important information that we can’t get from any other source, they don’t show you everything that’s going on in your mouth. That’s why we have invested in an intraoral camera – a highly advanced piece of diagnostic technology that allows you to see what we see inside your mouth.
The intraoral camera is approximately the size and shape of a dental mirror. It has a built-in light source, and serves as a tiny video camera that allows us to zoom in on one tooth with magnification. The images can be displayed on a television or computer monitor, so you will be able to see problems such as worn or broken fillings, cracked teeth, plaque accumulation, cavities next to fillings and excessive wear. We can also print or email an image for you to take home with you. These images are also very useful in gaining acceptance for treatment from insurance companies.
Planmeca PlanMill 40 S is a state-of-the art milling unit. With this milling unit on-site, our lab technicians are able to manufacture long-lasting and natural-looking restorations available in a surprisingly short period of time, which, of course, saves you, the patient, time and doctor visits. Further, we can make adjustments to your restoration’s shades and fit while you are in the office.
Cone Beam CT Scanner
Cone Beam CT scanner is a an advanced technology that allows us to use x-rays to make 3 dimensional images. This is very important when evaluating patients for wisdom teeth surgery, implants, and root canals. Our Cone Beam CT scanner uses 10 times less radiation than a traditional CT scan and provides a wealth of important information.
