Technologies at Our Dental Clinic
We use technologies to inform treatment planning for patients at Pure Dental and to make your dental appointments run smoothly. Since we can display digital X-rays and scans on monitors in our treatment rooms, we're able to show you any issues in your mouth, explain your treatment plan and address any questions you might have.
Our goal is to provide patients with dental care while ensuring they are fully informed regarding their oral health. Dental technology helps us accomplish this objective.
Digital sensors in digital X-rays have replaced traditional photographic X-ray film. Using digital X-rays, we capture detailed computer images of the teeth and gums, in addition to other oral structures and conditions. This allows your dentist to examine parts of your mouth that are not visible to the naked eye.
With panoramic X-rays, your dentist can create a single image of your entire mouth. This image is a flat representation of the teeth, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), upper and lower jaws, and nasal and sinus structures. Panoramic X-rays are often used to help plan treatments for extractions, implants, braces and dentures.
In dentistry, lasers (focused light beams) can be used in a variety of soft and hard tissue procedures. They allow our dentists to perform dental procedures with less pain and fewer medical interventions. At Pure Dental, our dentists use lasers to remove overgrown or decayed tissue, to reshape the gums, to harden dental restorations quickly, or to whiten teeth.
Cone Beam Cat Scan
Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a special type of X-ray machine that generates 3D images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths and bone in the craniofacial region in a single scan. Images obtained with CBCT allow for more precise treatment planning, including analyzing your airway for breathing issues and other conditions.
