When a patient receives a traditional full-mouth x-ray series (18-20 small films encompassing all the teeth), the information gleaned is limited by this 2-D flat photographic view, and there is still some distortion.
With utilizing the latest three dimensional x-ray technology, the information from the areas scanned is stored digitally, and a multiplicity of images can be created from them, depending on what needs to be seen and studied.
Medical CT scanners emit fan-shaped x-ray beams that gather data in multiple slices, and might expose a patient to as much as 10 times more radiation than a CBCT scan. By contrast, a single CBCT scan delivers a dose of radiation nearly equal to that of only a standard 20-film digital full-mouth x-ray series. Unlike conventional dental x-ray machines, 3D x-ray machines have additional settings to improve image quality and size of the image. The greater the detail or image quality required, the greater the radiation exposure. If more anatomical structures need to be seen, the scan becomes larger and therefore the radiation dosage may be larger.
Laser technology is becoming quite commonplace in a wide variety of areas throughout the healthcare industry. Today, using a small, handheld device, it is possible to detect tooth decay that is not yet visible and would otherwise be undiagnosed by conventional methods alone. You can expect:
On Premise lab: Since we specialize in crowns, fixed bridges, implants, and cosmetics; having a lab on premises that specializes in these services is a major plus for our patients. We can custom color and design every crown uniquely. Our patients do not have to drive anywhere for their teeth "to match". Our technicians come from Europe and Japan where they go to school for 4 years of training. Then come here to apprentice for several years before they become master technicians.
By inserting the mouthpiece fitted around your existing orthodontics and wearing the activator for 20 minutes everyday, AcceleDent Aura can speed up tooth movement through the use of SoftPulse Technology®. Faster tooth movement may decrease the duration of your orthodontic treatment and may help to make your orthodontics more comfortable.
Part of the way that orthodontics works is by changing or remodeling the bones surrounding your teeth. As this remodeling process is accelerated, your teeth move more quickly. That’s where AcceleDent comes in. By using tiny vibrations, or micropulses, SoftPulse Technology® is designed to speed up bone remodeling, accelerating tooth movement.
