digital dental tools

At Grandview Dental Care, we pride ourselves on being tech-savvy. However, using the latest digital equipment is not just a fad. Our experts use powerful tools to improve results as well as your dental experience.

When it comes to your dental care, a digital dental office can make your results more accurate, faster, and more enjoyable. But as you know, a tool is only as good as its user.

Our professionals are what make our office special, and in their hands, these are some of the instruments making your care the best it can be.

Cone Beam CT Digital 3D Radiography

3D CT technology is an amazing imaging tool. With this system, we are able to produce amazing, undistorted images of your mouth, which helps us plan your treatment.

During imaging, a scanner rotates around your head to create nearly 600 images. Software reconstructs these images into a three dimensions. It is similar to how a globe gives you a better perspective of position than a map.

With this technology, we can safely record data with minimal radiation. The 3D layout also makes it easier to make a virtual plan for your dental implant placement.

But it still comes down to staff. Our certified radiography staff’s expertise means your data can be recorded right here, without the need for a referral or an off-site visit. This can help save both cost and time.

Intraoral Cameras

These microscopic cameras allow you to see everything your dentist does. We include these high-definition cameras in each of our treatment rooms.

An intraoral camera helps us to compare the changes in your mouth from one visit to the next. Communication is improved as well. Your dentist can show you exactly where his or her question is focused.

Cavitron Jet Plus

Rather than the antiquated rotating polishers, our office employs the high-precision Cavitron Jet Plus air polishing system.

These tools employ warm water and a painless polishing powder to quickly clean and shine your teeth. The precision tips make it easier to clean around orthodontic brackets and wires, providing a gentle cleaning.

Digital X-Rays

Taking your x-ray is now safer, clearer and faster – for you and our professionals. With some new digital radiography equipment, about 90 percent of radiation is reduced.

With the ability to capture hi-res images quickly, you can see what we see during the same visit. This way, you and your dentist can both see areas that need to be addressed, such as:

  • Tooth wear
  • Cavity depth
  • Leakage around restorations
  • Cysts and infections
  • Bone loss

These are just a few of the modern digital tools that Grandview Dental Care uses every day.

While the expertise and skill of our staff is what we are most proud of, these tools can make your visit faster, more comfortable, and more enjoyable.

And as the medical field continues to make advances in technology, we look forward to what the future holds. Maybe on your next visit, we will have something even more amazing to show you.
