How Our Care Improves Along with Our Technology
Staying up to date with the latest innovations in dental technology makes our treatments more effective and comfortable. In particular, advancements such as intraoral cameras and digital X-rays have improved our ability to make quick and accurate diagnoses while also helping our patients feel well-informed about their oral health. If you call today to schedule an appointment at Gentle Care Family Dental, you can trust you’ll receive the highest level of quality care that modern dentistry has to offer.
We want you to feel like an active participant in making decisions about your own dental treatment, but it can be tough to do that without seeing what is going on in your mouth for yourself. With an intraoral camera, you’ll be able to view close-up images of your teeth and gums on our chairside monitor so that you have a clear visual to refer to when listening to our recommendations. These cameras also help us check for warning signs of tooth decay and gum disease at various angles.
X-rays let us examine the oral structures beneath the surface of the gums so that we can give you a complete picture of your oral health. Radiography is nothing new to dentistry, of course, but the switch to digital X-rays has greatly reduced the amount of radiation exposure involved in the process. Also, the images are available for viewing immediately, and we can conveniently store them in an easy-to-access computer file instead of a crowded filing cabinet.
