The world is constantly changing, and the dental industry is going with it. New advances in dental technology and knowledge have made oral hygiene, dental restoration, and periodontal treatments more efficient and accessible than ever before.
Our Modern dentist in Santa Clara brings some of that technology right to you.
X-rays have been used to get a glimpse at the inner workings of the body since 1895. Traditionally, they have been made through exposing either glass plates or film to the x-radiation in order to create a negative. From this negative, prints are made.
Now, more than 120 years later, we have improved this dental technology through the adoption of digital software and equipment. Where once we needed wings of film and time to develop that film, we can now use a high-tech sensor to receive the images and transmit them directly to a computer screen.
Within seconds, our dentists can see a real-time scan of the inside of your mouth, and talk to you about it while you’re still sitting in the chair. We can zoom in on trouble areas, make multiple copies with the click of a button, and send the relevant information anywhere in the world that it’s needed.
While x-ray equipment is designed to get a good, clear look at the underlying structures of your mouth and jaw, intraoral cameras scan all of the surface structures.
Anything a dentist can see with a small mirror, an intraoral camera can both see and record closer, and in high-definition. All of the nooks and crannies between your teeth can get a good, close-up scan.
With this information, our dentists can more easily examine our own repair work, to make extra sure that everything is ship shape. Not only that, but we can build a digital file for your mouth.
With up-to-date technology and a modern, comfortable environment, we’re prepared to give you the very best dentistry that Santa Clara CA can offer. Give us a call today to set up an appointment.
