Our office prides ourselves on providing care on the forefront of innovation and technology. We provide the highest quality care for our patients by employing the most advanced technologies. We use the most advanced technology with a VATech i-PAX3D x-ray unit with PAN/CEPH/CBCT functions for comprehensive diagnosis of each patient.
Cone Beam CT Scan
Our office is one of the few dental offices with an on-site 3-D Cone Beam CT Scanner! This revolutionary technology provides three-dimensional views that allow our doctors to thoroughly assess and plan each patient prior to any procedure. Unlike a traditional CT Scanner, this 3-D system utilizes Cone Beam Technology and provides us with precise, crystal-clear images. The information that the scan offers is invaluable during the assessment and planning phases of dental implants and many other surgeries. We are able to accurately visualize and prepare for issues such as bone quality and the location of sinuses, nerves, and other vital anatomical landmarks. By utilizing this scan prior to surgery, we greatly improve our patients’ experience and deliver a positive treatment outcome.
Digital x-rays are the latest technology used to take dental x-rays. They are fast, comfortable, and efficient in oral health assessment. This technique uses an electronic sensor that captures and stores the digital image on the computer. The image instantly comes up on the computer and can be enlarged and adjusted as needed.
More importantly, digital x-rays require no chemical processing and they emit up to 90% less radiation than the already-low exposure of traditional x-rays!
Taking pictures of the teeth and supporting tissue with a small video camera about the size of a pen is a wonderful addition to dentistry today. The intra-oral camera creates digital images that can be stored on a computer at Embrace Smiles. The images are shared with our patients so they can join with us in the "co-diagnosis" of problems with their dental health. We can show you how others view your smile and which fillings are broken or discolored. We look forward to showing you a dental tour of your mouth in the privacy of your treatment room.
