DENTAL X-RAYS As a benefit to you, the digital x-ray provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version of the x-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind.
Digital x-rays are quickly becoming adopted by a large percentage of the dental industry. A digital x-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, there are a number of tools that will allows Dr. Shepherd and Dr. Tom to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with amazing accuracy.
intraoral camera The intraoral camera is an amazing diagnostic tool for viewing different angles in the mouth that we would not have been able to just a few years ago. The camera gives us the ability to view the entire mouth on a monitor so that we can get a closer look at any potential issues or problems that may arise. In addition, you will have the ability to see for yourself first hand the same images we are seeing.
rotary endodontics Endodontics, more commonly known as root canals, is a procedure where the nerves of the tooth are removed opposed to extracting the tooth. 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.
