When it comes to taking proper care of your whole-body health, we need innovative solutions to help us pinpoint and easily identify problem areas. At Village Dentistry, Dr. Upton is pleased to incorporate some of the most advanced dental technologies on the market. From digital X-rays and intraoral cameras to soft tissue lasers and a CT/Cone Beam Scanner, we can make your next visit more comfortable while delivering greater accuracy and precision. Check out what we offer in-house below.
Whether it is placing dental implants or preparing for another complex procedure, our CT/Cone Beam Scanner offers a more in-depth, detailed view of your bone, tissues, teeth, blood vessels, and nerve pathways. With a 360-degree rotating arm, the device captures hundreds of pictures to create a single 3D image that is used to ensure more accurate treatment planning and ultimately, successful results.
Eliminating the need for scalpels and sutures, our soft tissue laser helps to ensure a more comfortable experience when undergoing gum disease treatment. With the help of its concentrated beam of light, it targets bacteria, killing them on contact, while also minimizing the bleeding, swelling, and chance of infection. Because of its unique capabilities, you can expect that your recovery time will be significantly reduced, allowing you to resume normal activity much sooner.
As a handheld device that contains a small camera on the tip, our intraoral camera works to enhance patient education by allowing you to see exactly what Dr. Upton sees inside your mouth. Taking images of your smile and projecting them onto a chairside monitor, you will learn more about the importance of good oral health as well as why certain treatments are being recommended to improve your smile.
Digital X-rays are now the most effective way to capture routine images of your teeth and gums. Producing higher-resolution scans than traditional radiographs, they allow our team to easily review all areas of your mouth to determine if problems exist beneath the gumline. With this method of enhanced technology, Dr. Upton can decide how best to move forward should you require any type of restorative dental care.
