Digital dental x-rays will eventually become the standard in the dental industry. Compared to conventional x-ray technologies, our digital x-ray equipment reduces patient radiation exposure by almost 90%. Our digital sensors enable our dental professional to record an x-ray image of the teeth and bone structure of the head and neck. These images are stored in an imaging software program that contains a suite of tools that allow our dentists to more accurately analyze your teeth and surrounding structures.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer screenings are a very important component of a patient dental visit. The Perry Family Dentist team has received specialized training for oral cancer screening. We employ the latest fluorescence based technology to identify potential issues earlier than can be detected with traditional examination methods. This technology helps with the detection of issues before they become a major irreversible problem.
An intraoral camera is an amazing diagnostic tool for viewing different perspectives in the mouth that we would not have been able to just a few years ago. The camera gives us the ability to view hard-to-see areas on a computer monitor and better assess potential oral health issues. Furthermore, the patient can see first hand the same images being viewed by our dental professionals. These digital images often assist in the process of obtaining treatment approval from insurance companies.
Endodontics, more commonly known as root canal, is a procedure where the roots or nerves of the tooth are removed. This is often due to the fact that they are infected and the tooth is causing pain.
Rotary Endodontics is a way of performing the root canal utilizing a specific electrical handpiece. This tool often makes the process faster and allows the dentist to perform the process with greater ease.
CAD/CAM and CT Scan
Computer Aided Design / Computer Aided Mapping technology are employed by our dental team for planning and design of dental treatments including crowns, bridges, dentures, and implants. Specialized software for analyzing images created by computerized tomography are used for virtual implant treatment planning and surgical guide fabrication.
