Though dental decay and infection are among the most common concerns that threaten the integrity of your smile, it goes without saying that they are far from the only issues. Indeed, complications such as oral cancer, sleep apnea, and even chronic teeth-grinding pose a significant threat, and there are even more concerns you might not even think of. What’s more? Treating complications would be difficult without high-precision equipment, but fortunately, advanced dental technology is on our side. In today’s blog, your Leawood, KS dentist explains the importance of advanced equipment, and how it contributes to higher-quality treatment.
When you come in for your routine visit, you can always count on your dental assistant to ensure your X-Rays are taken care of. After all, it is the most routine step when it comes to dental health imaging, and it serves a number of purposes. Indeed, your X-Rays help provide a highly precise picture of your oral structures so that our team can ensure there are no discrepancies such as cracks and other concerns that we may not be able to identify with the naked eye.
Our team emphasizes the importance of safe and comfortable treatment, and we aim to go one step further by providing even higher levels of safety with quality results. Indeed, digital X-Rays produce roughly 90 percent less radiation than traditional X-Rays.
What’s more? The use of digital image capturing allows our team to produce these images virtually instantly. With so many benefits, it serves as our top choice for routine digital imaging. To learn more about this process and how we assist, reach out to our team today.
A Clearer Picture with an Intraoral Camera
Receiving restorative treatment or even examining a concern further can be made more efficient with the help of an intraoral camera. Though digital X-Rays and 3D cone beam imaging is helpful for treatment, a true visual inspection can go a long way.
Intraoral cameras can assist by helping check your teeth, gums, and tissues for any sign of damage, infection, decay, and more that we may not be able to clearly see on our own. They also serve an important role in providing sight on complications that may not be picked up on an X-Ray. Reach out to our team today to learn more.
3D Cone Beam Imaging
3D cone beam imaging is a lifesaver when it comes to not only scanning your grin for its exact dimensions and shape but for creating custom molds as well. This is helpful when a patient requires custom treatment, such as creating a custom restoration or oral appliance.
