A panorex machine stands upright and has a place to rest your chin and your forehead. The radiographic portion of the machine travels all the way around the outside of your head, creating an image.
Panorex X-Rays provide a 360-degree view of your upper and lower jaws, teeth, temporomandibular joints (TMJs) and sinuses. Because it is so comprehensive, it helps your dentist identify fractures of the teeth and/or jaw bone, and view impacted wisdom teeth in great detail. It also helps to diagnose TMJ, detect gum disease and observe any asymmetry of the oral and maxillofacial area.
Rotary Endodontics uses electrically-powered dental instruments (rather than traditional stainless-steel manual files) to perform safe and gentle root canal treatments. This electric hand tool is equipped with a tip constructed out of nickel titanium, a material that is five times more flexible than stainless steel.
The nickel-titanium instrument can be inserted deeply into a curved root canal without stretching or damaging the passageway. Because of the flexibility and unique movement of the instrument, creates a quick and reliable dental procedure which is also much less noisy. This makes the procedure less frightening for patients. Further, there is less chance of complications using these tools.
The intraoral Camera is a camera inserted into the mouth during dental procedures, making it possible for patients to see what the dentist sees. Historically, dentists have used drawings to describe the oral diseases that occur in a patient’s gums and teeth to illustrate what treatments are needed for each problem. The intraoral camera has replaced these outdated drawings with videos and pictures, and provides clearer understanding of each dental problem.
The Pax i3D CT scan’s multi-view imaging allows your dentist to have a complete view of different areas of the mouth. Various FOV features are utilized to fully assess the endodontic structures, maxillary area and mandibular area. The CT scan exam creates 3D images that show the bone density of teeth, sinuses, facial nerves, infections and bone irregularities.
Using electric handpieces makes your dentist less fatigued when applying multiple crowns. These tools make your treatments more consistent, efficient, and margins are easier to attain with greater control. Electric handpieces further enhance your dentist’s skill, bringing routine procedures to a new level or precision.
Digital X-Rays detailed images of your entire mouth. One advantage of digital over film is that they offer up to 80% less radiation than traditional film x-rays. The large and color-enhanced images let you and your dentist see your teeth and mouth clearly, so that you can both understand how you will need to be treated.
Digital x-rays a faster, more efficient, and more accurate than traditional film x-rays.
Oral Cancer Screenings
One person dies every hour from oral cancer complications. Oral cancer is a disease that is caused by abnormal cell growth in the mouth, lips, tongue or throat. People over the age of 45 are most at risk. The good news is that oral cancer can be treated quite successfully if caught early enough.
