Technology

Dental technology for diagnostic and treatment purposes.

At Dentistry on Kent, we want you to know you’re in good hands. That’s why we take pride in giving you our best possible service and care, including the technology and devices we use to prevent, diagnose, and treat you and your family.

Our office uses a variety of modern technological advances to provide our top-notch dental care. Here are a few of them:

Intra-Oral Cameras

Imagine being able to clearly see the areas in your mouth your dentist is talking about, rather than just using a mirror or doing your best to visualize. Intra-oral cameras provide excellent image quality and zoom abilities, showing you and your dentist the inside of your mouth in as much detail as needed. Not only are they a great diagnostic tool, but they allow you to be more involved with your dental care and better understand your treatment options.

Digital X-Rays

Faster and more accurate than traditional x-rays, digital x-rays are also more comfortable, as the computer scanner does all the work - no more holding those bite-wings in your mouth! The images are stored on the computer system, making retrieval and viewing quicker and easier as well. And since the digital image is highly detailed, you can be sure that you’re receiving the most informed diagnosis possible.

Panoramic X-Rays

Panoramic x-rays, as with digital x-rays, are now faster and more accurate thanks to imaging technology. Panoramic x-rays are taken when the dentist needs to get a picture of your entire mouth and jaw at once. These images are likewise stored on the local computer network for easy access.

Cephalometric X-Rays

From the Greek kephalos meaning “head”, a cephalometric x-ray provides a complete image of the side of the face. This allows the dentist to examine the jaw and cheekbone, measure teeth, and observe bites and other oral issues. The cephalometric x-ray can be especially helpful when preparing for orthodontic treatment.

At Dentistry on Kent, we have expertise you can count on, and the most advanced in dental technologies to assist us. Relax - you’re in good hands!
