At Serenity Dental Studio we streamline every patient’s visit with top-of-the-line dental technology. Below is a brief description about the office and technology.
Intra-oral cameras take precise, close-up photos of your teeth. They are essential tools that allow us to explain the best treatment routes for patients.
That’s why we use the intra-oral camera at every visit. It helps patients see exactly what we were able to find during their exams. Tooth fractures, any restorations with recurrent decay, crowded teeth, tartar build-up – this camera shows it all.
X-rays are an essential part of a dental visit. They help us diagnose any problems that we are unable to see with the naked eye.
We choose to perform digital x-rays as they are a more safe, comfortable, and efficient option in comparison to traditional x-rays.
Digital x-rays emit significantly less radiation than their traditional counterparts. Also, the small sensor placed inside a patient’s mouth with a digital x-ray is much smaller than traditional film. This makes patients a lot more comfortable during the process.
What is great about digital x-rays is that they only take a few seconds to do. The only exception is if we need to perform a full mouth series of x-rays, which can take anywhere from 10-15 minutes. Digital x-rays also display immediately after they are taken, rather than needing to process traditional film. This means a quicker and more precise diagnosis.
Cone Beam 3D imaging technology provides clear, detailed images of the jaw, sinuses, and teeth. It is very safe. Our machine in particular has ultra low dose imaging technology so that the machine gives off very little radiation.
The high-quality images from CBCT 3D imaging allow for the most efficient diagnosis. The machine recognizes details that are often missed with 2D imaging. Capturing such vivid details makes this technology indispensable in deciding the best course of treatment for our patients.
The CBCT machine is also gentle. It’s an excellent alternative to sensor x-rays for those who have strong gag reflexes. Also, unique artifact-correcting technology ensures consistently accurate images. This is makes capturing images easier with patients who may have trouble keeping still, such as children or the elderly.
