On your first visit, most of the time was spent on diagnosing the root cause of your dental problem, running some quick tests and taking some dental images. Advanced dental imaging techniques allow dental health professionals to quickly capture clear high-resolution images of your dental anatomy from wider and different angles. This tremendous advancement in the field of dentistry is not only time-saving, but also gives our dentist the necessary insight to provide you with the most accurate treatment for your dental care needs.
An CEPH X-ray, also known as a Cephalometric Analysis, is a type of panoramic X-ray that is used to get a look at the entire bone structure of your neck and head. This helps our dentist identify if there are any developmental problems in the jaw, neck and head area which could be causing problems with proper development in the oral and facial bones of your face. This tool is largely useful for understanding the occurrence of underbites and overbites, and helps to realistically predict the movement of teeth when applying various treatments. Keeping the condition of the jaw in mind, this tool can work out how the teeth will be fixed and predict how soon the results can be seen.
iTero Dental Impressions
The iTero Intraoral Scanner allows doctors to take a 3D digital scan of a patient’s teeth and bite rather than using a viscous impression material. This digital impression scanner can be used for veneers, crowns, bridges, surface inlays, onlays, implant abutments from single units to full arches and even modeling an Invisalign treatment. Patients are also able to view before and simulated after images of their dental treatments on an in-office computer display.Read more about iTero Dental Impressions
