At Family Dental Care, the technology we use helps us provide patients with efficient dental care including dental lasers, digital x-rays and intraoral scanners.
Technologies at Our Practice
At Family Dental Care, we use technology to inform treatment planning and make your appointments more efficient.
Because we can display digital x-rays and scans on the monitors in our treatment rooms, we can show you any issues in your mouth and walk you through your treatment plan.
Our goal is to provide patients with efficient dental care, and make sure they are fully informed about their oral health. Dental technology helps us do that.
Digital x-rays use digital sensors instead of traditional photographic x-ray film. They produce highly detailed computer images of the teeth and gums, as well as other oral structures and conditions, allowing your dentist to examine parts of the mouth that are not visible to the naked eye.
Panoramic x-rays allow your dentist to create a single image of your entire mouth. This image is a flat representation of the teeth, upper and lower jaws, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and the nasal and sinus structures. Panoramic x-rays are often used to help plan treatments for dentures, braces, extractions and implants.
In dentistry, lasers (extremely focused light beams) can be used in a variety of soft and hard tissue procedures. They allow our dentists to perform dental procedures with less pain and fewer medical interventions.
iTero 3D Scanner
The iTero® intraoral scanner takes highly accurate, 3D impressions of your bite. It allows us to plan your dental treatment in real time, store data digitally, and create Invisalign clear aligners.
