The industry of oral healthcare is constantly evolving as new dental technology is developed. PS Dental stays up to date with all of the technological advancements in the field of dentistry and utilizes cutting-edge technology such as Digital X-rays, Intraoral Cameras, and Intraoral Scanners
Our digital x-ray technology allows our doctor to view magnified images of your teeth quickly and conveniently on their computers. These images can help our doctor examine your teeth with remarkable precision so that we can more accurately diagnose and treat our patients. Digital X-rays are one of the most effective ways to examine your teeth as they are much faster and use far less radiation than traditional film x-rays.
The intraoral camera is a highly advanced tool that enables our doctor to gain essential insights into our patient’s dental health when performing diagnostic care. This device can be used to take record images of your mouth, gums, teeth, and tongue from inside your mouth in order to come up with a diagnosis and treatments. The intraoral camera is around the size of a pen, and its compact design allows for images to be comfortably taken from a variety of different angles.
In the past, patients were forced to bite down on dental trays filled with a flavored compound that would harden in order to get an impression of their teeth. However, the intraoral scanner allows us to take precise 3-dimensional digital video impressions far more quickly and easily than before. Accurate impressions are important for the fabrication of dental restorations such as:
