Technologies at iDental
At iDental, the technology we use helps to inform treatment planning and make your dental appointments more efficient.
Because we can display digital x-rays and scans on the monitors in our treatment rooms, we can show you any issues in your mouth and walk you through your treatment plan.
Our goal is to provide patients with quality dental care, and make sure they are fully informed about their oral health. Dental technology helps us do that.
In dentistry, lasers (extremely focused light beams) can be used in a variety of soft and hard tissue procedures. They allow your dentist to perform dental procedures with less pain and fewer medical interventions.
At iDental, our dentists use lasers to remove overgrown or decayed tissue, to reshape the gums, to harden dental restorations quickly, or to whiten teeth.
Digital & Panoramic X-Rays
X-rays are an important part of your ongoing dental care. They allow your dentist to examine parts of the mouth that are not visible to the naked eye, identify developing problems, and treat them before they become serious.
- Digital X-Rays
Digital x-rays use digital sensors instead of traditional photographic x-ray film. They produce highly detailed computer images of the teeth and gums, as well as other oral structures and conditions.
- Panoramic X-Rays
Panoramic x-rays allow your dentist to create a single image of your entire mouth. This image is a flat representation of the teeth, upper and lower jaws, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and the nasal and sinus structures.
iTero 3D Scanner
The iTero intraoral scanner takes highly accurate, 3D impressions of your bite. It allows us to plan your dental treatment in real time, store data digitally, and create Invisalign clear aligners.
