If you have not been to the dentist in a long time, you are probably unfamiliar with many of the changes adopted to make your visit more relaxing and pleasant. Dental technology continues to evolve making diagnosis, treatment and comfort better than ever. Drills are quieter and faster making it possible for you to spend less time in the dental chair and under more comfortable circumstances. X-ray machines emit lower doses of radiation and are safer than ever before. A variety of dental instruments and tools have been developed to provide more effective and precise treatment.
At Lane Family Dental, we are proud to offer you the best in new dental technology to make your visit with us more enjoyable and efficient. If it has been a while since you have made a visit to a high-tech dentist office for dental services, you are in for a very pleasant surprise.
With digital X-rays, we can immediately see what is happening under the surface of your teeth and gums. More efficient than the traditional method of taking radiographs, digital x-rays do not require the time or chemicals used to develop old-style pictures of your teeth and bone structure. The images can be transferred and enhanced so you can clearly see what has been x-rayed. Digital X-ray machines also give off less radiation than older machines. This means a safer environment for you and for the dental team.
Thanks to a device known as the intraoral camera, we can share with you what we see in your mouth during your dental examination. This device accurately takes pictures of the inside of your mouth, highlighting areas that are difficult, if not impossible, to see visually. With the intraoral camera, we can shed light on procedures – why and how they need to happen – in terms you can easily understand. Pictures produced by the intraoral camera make it easy to understand what is happening to your teeth.
Dental technology keeps evolving for the comfort of the patient. We stay current on this ever-changing field so we can provide the best oral care for you. Contact Lane Family Dental today to schedule an appointment for yourself or your entire family.
