3D Green CT
Our 3D Green CT machine is state of the art dental equipment. This system uses the lowest amount of radiation to take images out of any current dental imaging machine. In just a few seconds, superior diagnostic images are developed. The speed and reduced radiation make this machine much safer for patients, and have less impact on the environment. It produces quicker, safer, and better X-Rays all in one machine.
Computer Digital Radiography (CDR)
Digital x-rays can now be taken using sensors that transmit the image directly into a computer monitor. This larger image helps the patient understand the doctor’s explanations more easily and enables the doctor to ‘zoom in’ on a specific area of the tooth. An important advantage to this new technology is that it reduces the amount of radiation by 90%. Digital x-rays are also faster.
The digital image only takes a minute or two to appear in the monitor. In addition, this new technology is friendly to the environment since no chemicals are needed for developing the image.
Dental Imaging Software
Dental imaging software allows us to simulate cosmetic and other procedures so you can see the effect on your smile before we start! We take digital pictures of your teeth and then use a sophisticated computer simulation program to create the projected ‘after’ images.
Our intraoral camera uses a tiny fiber-optic wand to easily take vivid photographs of the inside of your mouth. This allows us to let you see what we see.
