Due to progress in technology, our dentist is implementing new tools and techniques that have shown to be more effective and efficient than their traditional counterparts. Such is the case in the area of dental imaging as well.
Digital x-rays are one of the most important advancements in dentistry. The technology replaces traditional film x-rays with advanced electronic sensors.Read more about Digital X-rays
An intraoral camera is a small video camera that takes an image of the outside of the gum or tooth. The intraoral camera resembles an oversized pen. While simultaneously viewing a monitor, the dentist inserts the camera into a patient's mouth and gently shifts it about so that images can be taken from a variety of angles.Read more about Intraoral Camera
iTero Dental Impressions
The iTero Intraoral Scanner allows doctors to take a 3D digital scan of a patient’s teeth and bite rather than using a viscous impression material. This digital impression scanner can be used for veneers, crowns, bridges, surface inlays, onlays, implant abutments from single units to full arches and even modeling an Invisalign treatment. Patients are also able to view before and simulated after images of their dental treatments on an in-office computer display.Read more about iTero Dental Impressions
KaVo DIAGNOdent Laser Cavity Finder
The KaVo DIAGNOdent laser is a revolutionary, ADA approved method for detecting cavities using sound. Using a low-density laser, hidden decay is found much the same way a metal detector locates metal objects in the ground. When the laser pinpoints a cavity, it produces a sound. Thanks to this new technology, your dentist at Happy Valley Family Dentistry can discover unseen decay long before other conventional methods and provide treatment before larger oral problems develop. The procedure is quick and pain-free.Read more about KaVo DIAGNOdent Laser Cavity Finder
