Below are the technology services we provide:
Traditional X-rays took time to set up, develop, and view – we solve for all that wasted time with digital X-rays. Digital X-rays allow us to take high definition X-ray images of your mouth in only seconds. Digital X-rays show up on a monitor that we can view our patients in only seconds. Using these images, we can show you exactly what is going on in your mouth for a fraction of the cost of a traditional X-ray, savings that we pass onto you. Digital X-rays expose our patients to only 20% of the radiation that a traditional X-ray does, making it a healthier imaging solution.
Dental X-rays are primarily used to detect:
At Acree & Isenhower Family Dentistry, we use digital x-rays, which have several advantages over traditional film based x-rays. Digital x-rays allow us to take x-rays with 1/5 of the radiation that you would receive from traditional dental x-rays. The worry of exposure to excess radiation is eliminated.
Large on-screen x-rays make patient communication more effective. The immediate observation of the images on the screen allows us to discuss your dental health quickly and accurately.
Cerec 3D Scans and Milling
In the past, if we wanted to take an impression of your mouth, we would have to fill it with an unpleasant substance for about 10 minutes. Now we can simply scan your mouth using our 3D Cerec scanner, and we are done! We are even able to offer same day crowns because of our in-house cerec mill, which allows us to create crowns in hours instead of weeks.
Advanced Cavity Detection
The DIAGNOdent helps us to detect the early warning signs of a cavity before a full cavity ever gets a chance to develop on your teeth. Early detection of cavities can mean prevention of cavities from ever forming. We will show you the areas of your mouth that you need to pay closer attention to, and with some dedication to brushing and flossing regularly, you can prevent cavities from occurring.
An intraoral camera looks a bit like a toothbrush and allows us to show you a live video feed of the inside of your mouth. We use intraoral cameras to aid us in detection and education of oral health warning signs. There is incredible value in being able to point at a place in your mouth rather than having to explain to you the areas we are concerned about.
