Advanced Dental Services & Technology – Bloomfield, CT
to Enhance Your Care
A dentist’s training, experience, and personality are all key elements in ensuring that patients receive satisfactory care. However, even the most talented dentist would be limited in what they could accomplish without the proper technology to assist them. With the advanced instruments at our disposal, we are in the best position possible to reach accurate diagnoses, boost our patients’ comfort and safety, and provide efficient treatment. On this page, you can learn more about some of the remarkable technologies that we have invested in.
How Technology Makes Our Dentistry Better
- Accurate Diagnoses and Treatment Planning
- More Efficient Treatment from Beginning to End
- Enhanced Patient Comfort and Safety
Digital X-rays equip us to get aa accurate look at what is happening in a patient’s mouth below the gumline. The process for taking the X-rays is fast, and the images are immediately sent to a nearby computer so your dentist can provide you with prompt diagnoses. Another perk of this technology is that it uses approximately 90 percent less radiation than its old-fashioned film counterpart, making it a very safe part of your dental experience.
CT/Cone Beam Scanner
Our cone beam scanner, sometimes called a CBCT scanner, uses a cone-shaped beam of radiation to capture three-dimensional images of a patient’s teeth, jaw, nerves, and connective tissues. It provides a greater level of detail than a normal X-ray. We use this advanced imaging machine when we are diagnosing complex problems or preparing to perform a complex procedure. For example, we often use it as part of the treatment planning process for dental implants and root canal therapy.
