Digital x-rays are quickly becoming the standard in dental imaging. Digital x-rays allow the doctor to get a much better view of your teeth and potential dental conditions. The digital imaging software allows the doctor to see a number of different views of the tooth to gain a better understanding of the proper course of management. Digital x-rays provide a great benefit to the patient. Not only are they an excellent diagnostic tool, but they decrease radiation to the patient by over 80%.
Intraoral cameras are an excellent means of allowing the patient to view potential dental conditions in their own mouth. It is much easier to understand what is happening in your mouth if you can see the problem on a computer monitor. This digital image can be utilized to provide information to insurances and other doctors if necessary.
KCP is an innovative instrument that can be used as an alternative to the drill in many procedures. With ‘Air Abrasion’ or ‘drilless dentistry’ a microscopically fine powder is carried to the tooth by a stream of air, gently spraying away decay. In a simple sense, you could say it works like a precise miniature sandblaster. The KCP system greatly reduces heat and vibrations when compared to the traditional dental drill, and thus can be used with little or no tooth anesthesia. The KCP is also very useful in a variety of cosmetic procedures such as bonding, veneers, inlays and onlays.
