Technology

Dentistry is one of those professions that constantly changes. When Dr. Kinsey is considering new technology, he first determines whether an investment will improve health, comfort, and convenience for our patients.

Here are some of the ways that technology allows us to deliver consistently comfortable and exceptional dental care for every patient in our practice.

DIAGNOdent Laser Cavity Detection

An x-ray can tell us that a cavity is present, but it gives little information about the extent of the decay. Using laser technology, Dr. Kinsey can measure the depth of a cavity so he can better plan your treatment and predict the outcome.

Intraoral Camera

It's hard to see inside your own mouth. It's dark, and the angle makes it impossible to have a truly thorough look.

An intraoral camera is a small handheld device that snaps detailed images of single teeth. This allows us to show you exactly what we see by displaying these images on our treatment room monitors. Having all of the necessary information makes it possible for patients to make the most well-informed decisions regarding their oral health.

Digital X-Rays and Sensors

Early diagnosis is the key to keeping your smile healthy. When conditions like decay occur, it is always best to take care of it early before treatment becomes more complex. Digital x-rays and sensors deliver high-resolution images with the added safety of reducing radiation by 80 percent.

Digital x-rays also support a healthier environment by eliminating the need for chemicals. 

Panoramic X-Rays

Each type of x-ray serves a particular purpose:

  • Bitewings – helps us detect cavities
  • Periapical – shows us the root of the tooth

A panoramic x-ray provides a complete view of all teeth, bone, and jaw joints for the diagnosis of TMD or bone loss. It is also useful in evaluating wisdom teeth and identifying certain tumors or cysts. We may also use a panoramic x-ray in the dental implant process to identify the best location to place the implant.

Televisions in Rooms

Having a television in your treatment room can help pass the time while we take care of you. You can choose a favorite movie or show to help you relax completely while you are with us.
