Dental Technology in Phoenix, AZ
We use a variety of advanced technologies to aid in the delivery of care to our dental patients. Some of our technologies include CBCT, Joint Vibration Analysis, MLS Laser, Braeton HST, as well as storing all of our patient records electronically. One of the ways we have made it easy for our patients to stay on top of their dental care in their busy lives is to send text and email reminders for appointment scheduling, and we've added iPads for quick check-ins and to update your health history. For more information about some of the specific technologies mentioned, we invite you to read below for further information.
X-rays are a primary tool for early identification of dental problems. Detecting issues with x-rays before they become problematic can save you money in the long run. Early detection can help prevent the need for more extensive, expensive procedures or surgeries. Learn more about x-ray technology.
When a tooth has had a significant amount of work done, or if it has decayed to the point that its structural integrity has been compromised, having a crown placed is often a viable option for restoration. A traditional crown is a custom-made cap, made in a dental laboratory, that fits over your existing tooth. We now offer same-day crowns which, as the name implies, are made in our office and fitted on your tooth all in one visit! Same-day crowns are made possible thanks to computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) with the 3M Scanner. Learn more about same-day crown technology.
X-rays give us a clear view of what we can't see such as decay between the teeth. An intraoral camera gives the patient a view of what the dentist sees. An intraoral camera is a device that is about the size of a toothbrush. Broken fillings, fractured teeth, decay or any other dental problem can be viewed so that we can discuss with you any treatment needed. With a clear understanding of your dental needs we can decide together what the best treatment is for you. Click here for more information.
We use ultrasonic scalers for most adult dental cleanings. These devices use ultrasonic vibrations to help break down the plaque and calculus on the teeth that cause gingivitis and periodontal disease. The ultrasonic cleaners create microscopic bubbles that implode on the surface of the tooth, killing microbes and removing plaque and tartar in the process. Read more about our UltraSonic cleanings.
