When our team works to give someone their smile back, we want to be as precise as possible. This not only leads to a better result both aesthetically and functionally, but it also allows us to make the treatment process more comfortable. That’s why RP Dental & Implants has invested in some of the most advanced technology available today. Read on below to learn about some of the instruments we’ll use to rebuild your smile.
Our intraoral camera allows us to get a close look inside your mouth without having to shine a bright light into your eyes. This small device is able to capture highly-detailed images of the teeth and gums, including the areas that are hidden from the naked eye. With this camera, we can even show a patient their own images so they can see exactly what we are looking at. This makes the treatment process more transparent and enables us to answer questions more easily.
X-rays are an essential part of the treatment process, but traditional dental X-rays are slow, unclear, and cause patients to worry about radiation. Thankfully, digital X-rays are the answer to all of these problems. They’re able to create crystal-clear images in a matter of seconds, and the process emits about 90% LESS radiation compared to film. They also enable us to better archive and reference our X-rays so we can monitor someone’s oral health over time more accurately.
3D CBCT Scanner
With our CT scanner, we’re able to generate a complete, 3D model of the mouth, teeth, and head. This comprehensive image gives us much more information than a traditional X-ray, and we always use it when planning a dental implant treatment. In addition to showing the orientation of the teeth, it also reveals the thickness of the jawbone and location of facial nerves. With this information, we can plan and execute a treatment as effectively and non-invasively as possible.
Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry
Often, when rebuilding someone’s smile, we need to slightly reshape their gum line in order to make room for the new teeth. Instead of relying on scalpels and sutures to do this, we instead use a soft tissue laser. It’s able to painlessly remove unneeded tissue while cauterizing any nerves and blood vessels along the way, reducing post-treatment swelling and bleeding to basically zero.
