Technology at Marine Hills Dentistry
Dental providers are trained to identify the symptoms of underlying oral diseases. But still, it is possible to miss out on important details during a visual examination. Digital X-rays provide a full view of the oral structures and indications of problems that may be present. These problems may include tooth decay, cavities, and infections.
As part of your regular exams, a series of digital X-rays are taken of the mouth, allowing us to understand more about your oral health. With more detailed results, modern digital X-rays help improve diagnostics and guide precise treatments. Besides ensuring the images are available immediately, digital X-rays also help reduce your exposure to radiation by up to eighty-five percent.
Intraoral cameras are small, digital cameras that we use to capture images of challenging areas of the mouth. Our dentist can spot problems that would otherwise go unnoticed during a visual examination by capturing enlarged, high-quality images of your teeth, gums, and tissue.
The captured digital images can be transferred to a monitor screen, allowing us to get a better look and provide images that can be shared with you. Intraoral cameras enable us to view failing fillings, decay, bleeding gums, plaque, or hairline fractures in your teeth.
Many people avoid visiting a dental office because of anxiety and fear of drilling instruments and needles. Solea is a dental laser that utilizes a unique wavelength to deliver speedy results regardless of the dental procedure. It releases a narrow but intense beam of light that can remove and reshape the enamel and tissue. With ease, the laser allows us to work on any tooth, whether natural or restored.
