Have you ever wanted to see what it is that our dentists see when looking in your mouth? Well, now you can with an intraoral camera. This pen-shaped device is used to take high-resolution images of the inside of your teeth and gums. The images are then displayed on a nearby monitor so you can see for yourself. This allows our dentists to discuss, in real time, what is happening inside your mouth and what kinds of treatments can be used to address any problems.
The idea of being exposed to large amounts of radiation doesn’t sound fun at all, does it? Unfortunately, dentists need to be able to take x-rays of your mouth to see what problems might be existing beneath the gum line. Thankfully, with advancements in technology, your dentist in Northampton can now use digital x-rays to locate any issues beneath the oral tissue. Not only are they safer, faster, and eco-friendlier, but they emit 90% less radiation than a traditional x-ray machine.
CT/Cone Beam Scanner
As one of the most advanced imaging processes, the CT/Cone Beam Scanner creates an unlimited view of your teeth, face, and neck. Offering high-quality images, our dentists can gather the necessary information needed to diagnose and treat your oral problem. While you sit or stand, the scanner will rotate around your head. The process is completely painless, and in seconds, we’ll have precise scans to help with a variety of treatments such as dental implants and root canals.
Digital Impression System
If the idea of putting cold dental putty in your mouth to capture an impression sounds bad, you’ll be glad there’s an alternative! Using a small, handheld device, our dentists can quickly scan your mouth and take multiple photos of your teeth and gums. Appearing on a screen will be a cohesive digital impression that is more accurate and much quicker than the traditional method.
Soft Tissue Laser
This small, handheld device is used for a variety of treatments. Do you have gum disease? It can eliminate bacteria by vaporizing it! Do you want your gums lifted? Using this small laser, it can easily remove gum tissue and create a more beautiful smile. The concentrated beam of light can remove infected tissue in a matter of minutes, and you’ll experience little to no bleeding, pain, or swelling during or after your procedure. The soft tissue laser allows for faster, more accurate, and comfortable results.
