iCat 3D Cone Beam Scanner
Detailed imaging is one of the most useful tools for a periodontist because it allows the professional to properly diagnose medical conditions and more effectively treat ailments. Patients who are concerned about potential side effects of X-rays can rest easy with the cone beam scanner. This device is capable of providing a much more detailed, realistic depiction of a patient’s mouth, including detecting any abnormalities. Another advantage of this imaging technology is that the patient does not need to bite down on anything.
Laser dentistry has been common since the 1990s. Our office offers LANAP laser dentistry to remove diseased gum tissue to eliminate symptoms of periodontal disease. Benefits of lasers include less pain, reduced bleeding and decreased likelihood of infection. In many cases, patients can also enjoy a quicker recovery time.
Digital X-rays use approximately 70 percent less radiation than regular X-rays. They are also conveniently stored in the computer so your periodontist can locate them easily. In the event you need to see an orthodontist or another dental professional, our periodontists will be able to effortlessly send the images. Digital X-rays are also better for the environment and overall less expensive.
