Today’s advances in technology have enabled us to do things for your teeth that we would not have been able to years ago.
We can now save teeth that might have otherwise been unsalvageable. We can find and treat early onset disease before it becomes a serious problem, and we can get detailed views to the insides of your teeth for better treatment and protection.
In order to give your teeth the attention and quality treatment they deserve, our practice incorporates the use of a wide range of dental technology.
Dental Technology at Hollywood Family Dentistry
To give you the highest quality treatment we can, we use a variety of dental technology including the following:
Our dental lasers make dental procedures easy and cut back on a lot of the pain or discomfort associated with the traditional metal dental tools. Both soft and hard tissue lasers are used to keep teeth and gums cleaner and healthier.
Digital x-rays allow us to take pictures of your teeth with minimal exposure to radiation. We are then able to view images directly on computer screens.
Our panorama x-rays let us view your entire mouth, upper and lower teeth and jaw, in one single image.
Cone Beam Technology
When we need to see a more in-depth image of your teeth, soft tissues, and nerve pathways, we’ll use our cone beam technology. This creates a three dimensional image of your mouth for us to examine.
Intraoral cameras let us take pictures of your teeth and oral structures from inside your mouth. The camera is small enough to be placed comfortably in your mouth so we can get detailed, close-up shots.
Computers in Each Operatory
Top-quality care can only be provided if all patients are treated equally. In keeping with this, we have a computer in each operatory, so you don’t have to wait any extra time for your dentists and hygienists to go back and forth entering information in a separate room.
Plaque Measurement Technology
Using plaque measurement technology, we can determine the areas of your teeth that need more attention and cleaning. We can also find patterns, so we can help teach you the best way to care for your teeth at home.
