options for treatment. The ability to recognize issues sooner, while they're tiny, means less-invasive treatment and faster
recovery times. Ask us what these innovations can mean for you!
75% Reduction in Radiation
Digital X-rays produce images that can't be obtained with traditional film systems. Using a digital sensor inside your mouth,
we can capture both individual and panoramic views and display them on a monitor. Without risking any of the original
information, images can be intensified, enlarged, rotated, or color coded. With digital files, current images can be overlaid
over prior images to highlight changes in your dental health.
With digital X-rays, we've eliminated the lag time that resulted from film being developed, which means a more efficient office
visit for you. In addition, this cutting-edge technology decreases your exposure to radiation by 75% as compared to conventional
non-digital X-rays. As a further benefit, because no developing chemicals are required, this kind of X-ray introduces no chemical
pollution to the environment.
Intra-Oral Camera Makes You a Part of the Team
As you're required to make choices involving your oral health, Dr. Brush believes you should have the most precise information
available. To make this possible, she employs a high-tech tool known as the intra-oral camera. This ground-breaking video system
delivers a comprehensive look at the interior of your mouth, producing magnified images on a display screen. Now, you can witness
for yourself what work needs to be undertaken and which teeth are doing well. You'll be astonished by what you can see!
The Laser Scanner Finds Ultra-Small Cavities Years Earlier
Have you ever had a dentist find a large new cavity that requires a huge filling, but leaves you wondering how it's possible when
the cavity wasn't even there on your last six-month check-up? Well actually, it existed during your prior visit, but unfortunately
it couldn't be seen on the X-rays or with a visual inspection.
Sometimes dentists will have patients complain of tooth sensitivity, or mild to severe pain, yet X-rays and examination can't detect
the source. These patients are often provided with sensitivity toothpaste to ease the problem. Dentists have even performed root
canals to get the pain or sensitivity to stop, when the actual source was an undetectable amount of decay.
All these reasons and more are why Dr. Brush uses a laser scanner to uncover cavities in their earliest stages, at a time when they
can be repaired with only a miniscule filling. You won't ever depart our office contemplating whether the start of a new cavity has
been missed. We can discover cavities and take care of them before they become bigger problems.
