When we see you for a checkup, or if you are visiting us to undergo a specific procedure to help your smile, we always start with an examination using advanced technology. These digital systems can help us make a diagnosis with precision and plan your treatment in detail. In today’s blog, your Leawood, KS, dentist talks about our advanced imaging systems and how we use them as part of your treatment, so you can obtain treatment with precision.

Digital X-Rays

X-rays are an essential part of the diagnostic process. However, we offer a digital alternative that is more comfortable and provides high-definition images of your smile. The digital system means no need to bite down on uncomfortable bite wings. Instead, you will place your chin on a rest and a machine will encircle your head to obtain detailed images of our entire smile. The system uses 90% less radiation, and there isn’t a need to develop images in harsh chemicals. Instead, they will be available instantly chairside, so we can walk you through the diagnosis and limit how long you wait in the chair.

Intraoral Cameras

We also want to obtain clear images of the surfaces of your teeth and gums, which can enable us to make a more accurate diagnosis too. We can employ a tiny digital camera at the end of a very thin wand, so we can obtain clear images from multiple angles comfortably. Our team can better diagnose issues like tooth decay, gum disease, TMJ disorder and bruxism, and even screen for oral cancer. These same images can be easily transferred to other offices or specialists as needed, and can even aid in the creation of restorations and oral appliances too.

3D Cone Beam Imaging

Our team can also use the advanced cone-beam 3D imaging system to create detailed images of your smile from multiple angles. These can be used in place of traditional physical impressions, so no need to bite down on molds filled with sticky and poor-tasting materials. Our team can then craft crowns, bridges, implant restorations, and even TMJ appliances and more with better precision and accuracy. If you have any questions about the technology we use to plan and complete your treatments, or if you would like to schedule a visit for yourself or a member of your family, then contact our team today.
