State-of-the-Art Technology for Your Ultimate Dental Experience
To enhance your dental experience, educate and inform you about your oral health and dental care options, and provide accurate diagnoses, Senior Smile is equipped with many contemporary tools. Dr. Thapar-Dua uses an intraoral camera, digital X-rays, and convenient chairside monitors to explain treatment options. The more you know about your oral situation and options for care, the better you’ll feel about your decisions.
Intraoral cameras have proven to be an invaluable tool in improving dental care. The camera may reveal the early stages of potentially serious problems, allowing you the opportunity to prevent small problems before they escalate. This is especially helpful with gum disease and conditions that cause damage without causing pain. The camera's honest survey can also show you how your regular home hygiene routine is paying off. We can make recommendations for ways you can improve your homecare routine based on our findings with intraoral camera dental technology.
Meanwhile, digital X-rays can clearly identify all external and internal anatomical structures and help us more accurately diagnose your dental problems with greater efficiency and safety than traditional X-rays. The images are projected onto a chairside monitor, eliminating the need for X-ray paper and chemicals, and they require extremely low levels of radiation!
We also use DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection and Sapphire oral cancer screening to find dental problems in the earliest stage, when conservative treatment can alleviate or improve your oral health. DIAGNOdent technology uses a laser diode to inspect teeth, comparing the reflection wavelength against a healthy baseline wavelength to uncover decay. Meanwhile, screening a patient with Sapphire is quick. If we find a problem with the Sapphire wand, the spot will glow and stand out from the normal tissue.
