Dental technology is a rapidly advancing field and can help restore the form, function, and health of a patient’s mouth through the use of new and improved computerized, cutting-edge technology and tools.
At Parkway Dentistry at Langtree, we use breakthrough dental technology to provide you with safe, pain-free, and quick results.
Intraoral cameras are handheld devices shaped like oversized pens, which have the capability to take hundreds of in-depth and highly accurate pictures in a single second. These cameras are equipped with LED lights and fluorescent UV lights that are whiter and brighter than regular lights and hence offer improved visibility.
As a result, it can capture dental issues that may be missed by the naked eye. The image captured is high definition and can be transferred to a monitor where it can be examined from all angles.
Digital radiography is a form of x-ray imaging that uses digital sensors to detect dental defects instead of using photographic films. Digital radiography offers a lot of benefits over traditional x-rays.
Dr. Shannon Snipe uses digital radiography because of its improved ability for finding small cavities and fractures, checking the health of the tooth root and the supporting structure of the tooth, looking for impacted teeth, checking the health of the temporomandibular joint, the state of your bite (occlusion), problems in your facial bones and the jaw development with respect to your teeth.
