Intraoral cameras are a helpful patient education tool that gives you and your family an in-depth look into your oral health. The process is simple – we’ll insert the comfortable, camera-tipped wand into the mouth, and within seconds, clear, crisp images of your smile will be transmitted to a convenient TV monitor in the room. While getting an up-close-and-personal shot of your dental concerns may be overwhelming at first, this information is invaluable when it comes to explaining how to improve oral hygiene routines and how certain treatment options will affect you.
Older patients may remember the days of tedious film x-rays that required traditional darkrooms and lightboxes, but that’s all in the past here at Today’s Dental. Now, our digital radiography system captures high-resolution images of your smile and related facial structures and transfers them to our computer system for viewing in the span of mere seconds. Better yet, parents won’t have to worry about their children being exposed to an excessive amount of radiation during the process – digital x-rays reduce this exposure by up to 80%!
When we’re treating your delicate gum tissue, precision is an absolute must for our staff here in Dayton. That’s why we rely on our advanced soft tissue laser for the treatment of periodontal (gum) disease. This device allows us to eliminate deep bacterial pockets and trim away diseased tissue while preserving the healthy structure that remains, all while minimizing bleeding, swelling, and other postoperative symptoms. This technique helps our patients heal faster than ever!
Being able to identify areas of tooth decay earlier in their development can make a big difference in the quality of our patients’ ongoing oral health. Our team uses an advanced cavity detection system to scan teeth quickly and painlessly, revealing small areas of weakened structure – even ones that may not actually be visible to the naked eye just yet. This valuable information makes your care simpler and much more effective from visit to visit!
