Our dentist and dental team work hard to stay current on the latest advances in dental technology and techniques. We utilize state-of-the-art dental technology, including CEREC® one-visit restorations, to help us provide you with the best possible dental care and experience. CEREC technology allows our team to provide you with a custom-made, high-quality dental restoration in a single visit to our office. The traditional dental technology required at least two visits to complete a dental restoration; CEREC technology saves you time and discomfort by eliminating the need for a second visit. With CEREC technology, we can create the following types of dental restorations in just one visit:
With CEREC one-visit restorations, you will have no need for an uncomfortable temporary crown, veneers, or other restorations. In addition, CEREC uses advanced scanning technology to design the restoration, eliminating the need for messy impressions. CEREC one-visit restorations are created from high-quality porcelain that our dentist matches with your natural tooth color, so your restorations will look beautiful and natural for years to come. For more information on the advantages of CEREC one-visit restorations and our other advanced technology, we welcome you to call or visit us today.
Using digital radiography, Dr. Brackett can examine areas of your mouth not visible to the eyes for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, or other problems. The high-quality images produced by these X-rays make it easy for us to plan and perform treatments that will improve your oral health!
Digital X-rays are one of the most advanced diagnostic tools we use to provide you with the best possible care. Digital radiography has changed the way we take dental X-rays by making the process faster, more comfortable, and more convenient than ever before. Digital X-rays use a digital sensor to take images of your teeth, unlike traditional X-rays that use film. Digital X-rays use significantly less radiation than conventional film X-rays, and they don’t require the use of any chemicals for developing the images. Our dental team can then instantly view the high-quality images on monitors right in the treatment room to provide you with efficient and accurate diagnoses as well as effective care. Our team is able to use digital radiography to identify and diagnose several types of dental problems. These include the following.
- Decay in between teeth.
- Developmental abnormalities.
- Improper tooth root positioning.
- Cysts and abscesses.
- Fractures in existing fillings.
- Infection in the tooth nerves.
- Bone loss.
We may also use digital dental X-rays to plan certain kinds of dental treatment. These include oral surgery procedures, root canal treatment, dental implants, and more. To learn more about digital radiography and how we use X-rays at our office, we welcome you to call or visit us soon.
Dr. Brackett may use intraoral imaging during your exams to check the areas of your mouth that are more difficult to reach. Intraoral cameras are a quick and comfortable way to capture pictures of the inside of your mouth. They are also an excellent educational tool, as the images are displayed on a nearby monitor for both our patients and our team to view.
An intraoral camera is a tool we use to get a closer look at different parts of your smile. It is a small, pen-shaped tool that we can use to take high-quality color photos of your teeth and gums, as well as other structures in your mouth when needed. Because the intraoral camera is so small and easily maneuverable, we can use it to see angles in your mouth that we cannot easily view with the naked eye. We may utilize an intraoral camera to better evaluate your oral health and to diagnose dental problems like tooth decay and periodontal disease, as well as tooth damage like a cracked or chipped tooth. The intraoral camera is also useful in following up after a treatment has been completed.In addition to helping our team get a better view of your smile, the images taken with an intraoral camera are also helpful for allowing you, our patient, to gain a better understanding of your oral health and dental treatments. We can also send these photos to other dentists and specialists, and submit them to dental insurance companies as needed. To learn more about the uses and benefits of intraoral cameras, we invite you to call or visit our dentist and the dental team soon.
