At Greenway Family Dental we are proud to offer our patients the latest in dental technology. We want your experience to be as convenient and comfortable as possible. That’s why we employ the latest innovations in our procedures. The following are a few of the latest technologies that we employ in our office for your comfort:
- Digital X-rays
- CBCT Imaging Technology
If your teeth are damaged, CEREC technology is a great way to restore them. In just one visit, using high tech 3-D imaging, we can create a porcelain crown that fits snugly around your tooth. There’s no need for multiple visits or for wearing a temporary crown. Instead, your Doctor can use this technology to create a crown uniquely fitted to your tooth.
Through the technology of digital x-rays, we move a sensor from tooth to tooth and then see the images just moments later on the computer. Using digital x rays means we don’t have to expose you to as much radiation, so it’s also safer for you than traditional x-rays. In addition, it’s more precise because it allows us to see a larger image. Finally, we can easily store the images of your teeth and refer to them often.
CBCT Imaging Technology
“CBCT” stands for “cone beam computed tomography.” CBCT Imaging Technology offers a revolutionary way to acquire precise treatment planning as it provides a full access look at the entire craniofacial region. Advanced CBCT Imaging Technology gives us a 3D image of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone structure. With this 3D scan, we can properly diagnose you and better determine treatment for your symptoms.
CBCT Imaging Technology is relatively simple to use and virtually noninvasive. All you have to do is stand underneath the cone beam. You will then be instructed to bite down on the grip. Next, the cone beam’s arm will rotate 360 degrees around your head, capturing scans of your craniofacial region from several different angles. Once it completes its rotation, you should be all set!
