At Disability Dental Services, providing long-lasting and effective results relies on accurate diagnoses and precise treatments. We use the latest technology to help get the job done, including our intraoral cameras, digital X-ray imaging system, and soft tissue laser. We also store all of our records digitally, making them easy to transfer and store. To learn more about some of the instruments and technology that you can find around our dental office, read below.
Our intraoral camera is a small, handheld device that we can easily maneuver around our patient’s mouth to get an up-close look at hard-to-see nooks and crannies. This allows us to more easily diagnose problems like interproximal cavities, or cavities that form between the teeth, and other oral health issues that can be hidden to the naked eye. We can also take images with the camera to show you what problem your loved one face and how our recommended treatment plan can help address it.
We have digital individual X-rays and digital panoramic X-rays, which subject patients to about 80% less radiation than traditional radiographs. Our chairside monitors allow you to view X-rays and images so that we can explain our findings and treatment recommendations. This will help you make wise, informed decisions about the oral healthcare of your loved one.
To help make sure that crowns and bridges fit perfectly and to kill harmful oral bacteria, we use our soft tissue laser. It’s a small, pen-shaped device that emits a concentrated beam of light from the end of it. It can easily remove overgrown soft tissue in the mouth without the use of a scalpel or sutures. It also helps cauterize the area on-site, minimizing risk of infection while healing, as well as bleeding.
