We take the safety of our patients very seriously, and are proud to offer advanced, digital X-ray technology in our office. Digital X-rays expose patients to less radiation than traditional X-rays do, and provide the most clear and accurate images for determining diagnoses and treatment plans.
X-rays provide our staff with very valuable information, but they can’t tell us everything about the health of your mouth. Our intraoral camera gives us an accurate view of what is happening in your mouth, and can find even the smallest cracks, plaque deposits and developing cavities. We can determine if there is excessive wear on the teeth, and even if there are cavities present next to existing fillings. The intraoral camera allows us to discover dental issues early on, when they are easier and less expensive to correct.
The intraoral camera we use is similar in size the mirrors used in regular hygiene appointments. You’ll be able to instantly see the images we capture on a monitor, which can ensure you are fully informed about your dental health and can better understand treatment options available.
Digital CT Imaging
Having a precise diagnosis means we can craft the most ideal treatment plan to perfectly meet your needs. Our digital CT imaging system allows us to do just that, and is quick, comfortable and effective. Our digital data technology provides 3D data for:
- Dental implants
- Wisdom teeth extractions
- TMJ treatment
- Airway assessments and sleep apnea
- Full facial and jaw 3D images
Digital CT imaging gives you access to more complete dental treatment because it provides the most accurate data to form a complete diagnosis. Features include:
- One 20-second scan that provides enough data for a complete diagnosis
- A safer diagnosis with less radiation than traditional CT scanners
- Increased comfort: patients are seated in an open environment with plenty of space
- A more cost-effective imaging system
- Doctors can easily share the data with patients, so that patients stay informed and are able to make educated decisions on their course of treatment
Taking an impression of your teeth is easier than ever before. Using the latest digital technology, we can take an accurate digital impression that immediately provides us with a 3D image of your teeth. Digital impressions are more accurate, giving our orthodontists the information they need to craft the most ideal treatment plan to meet your needs.
Our digital impression scanner comfortably captures images of your mouth, teeth and gums, utilizing the latest in optical technology. The compact, hand-held wand allows the technician to start and stop as needed, ensuring your comfort during the process.
The scanner uses a radiation-free laser to create the most accurate impression of your teeth and tissue structures. You’ll be able to see the entire process unfold on a monitor, including seeing a 3D model of your teeth. We can use these digital impressions to accurately plan your orthodontic treatment, but they can also be used for restorative treatment plans, such as crowns, veneers, onlays and bridges.
Wired Orthodontics is proud to offer the best in orthodontic technology because it ensures our patients have access to the most complete and accurate treatment plans. And that means beautiful, healthy, and properly functioning smiles for all of our patients.
