An intraoral camera is a pencil-sized device that takes pictures of your teeth and gums. Your dentist in Doylestown, PA uses these images to help you make informed decisions about your dental care.
With this technology, we can bring up the pictures on a chairside monitor and explain any dental health issues you might be experiencing. It also gives you a picture to go with your diagnosis and helps you better understand why a specific treatment has been ordered by your dentist.
At Doylestown Dental Group, we want you to be informed with the best information and always understand your treatments.
This compact technology relies on transillumination to detect tooth cavities without cumbersome x-rays. This device allows your dentist to detect decay in your tooth with a special light that allows your dentist to see the exact location of your tooth lesion. This means your dentist can detect tooth decay in its very early stages.
This technology uses non-ionizing radiation, and it is safer for children and expectant mothers.
In our dental office, we work to utilize technologies that allow for a safer and more comfortable dental experience for our patients.
Our CT scanner produces 3-D images to help your dentist diagnose and treat oral health conditions. It also creates images that guide us in dental health treatments like dental implant placement.
This technology produces far less radiation compared with traditional films, which makes it a must for our dental office. Your safety is our priority.
Modern technology like the diode laser allows for less invasive dental surgeries. We also use this technology to provide easier periodontal treatment in Doylestown, PA. A laser means a less invasive experience and a faster recovery. Laser dentistry also means less bleeding as it is precise and promotes healing.
In gum disease treatment, the laser can clear away diseased tissue to help your teeth better adhere to your healing gums.
Digital x-rays provide resizeable images for your dentist and play a crucial role in diagnostics and treatment planning.
Digital x-rays also emit less radiation and are safer for the environment because there are no harsh chemicals required for film development. With this technology, we can store your images digitally as well. This allows us to compare oral health changes between dental visits.
