Why Technology Counts
- Posted on: Apr 15 2018
When it comes to technology, you may have the latest smartphone, tablet, and computer, but did you know that technology also plays a huge role in other aspects of your life including your oral health? Here at Baltimore Periodontics, we pride ourselves on the fact that we use the latest and most innovative technology to sure that our patients get great results every time.
What Technology Do We Use?
It used to be that you would have to come to the dentist one day for an x-ray and then come back on an entirely different day to review the finding of that x-ray. However, the modern technology that we use at our office allows us to take an x-ray image of your mouth and review the results right away without you having to wait. By using a special sensor, we can reduce the radiation by more than 90 percent over traditional dental x-rays— leaving you with more ease and comfort in our technology.
i-Cat Cone Beam 3D Imaging
In addition to using traditional x-rays, we also use a 3D dental imaging system called i-Cat Cone Beam 3D Dental Imaging which allows us to take a 3D image of your face and jaw. This system not only generates images in just a few seconds but it also helps us with more precise dental procedures like dental implant placement. With patients who have chronic dental problems like TMJ, we have found this imaging system to be more successful because it helps us detect problems earlier on and start treatment right away.
Good dental care isn’t just about treatment; it’s about the proper and timely diagnosis as well. To learn more about our advanced digital technologies, schedule your next dental appointment at our Catonsville office today and call (410) 744-6088.
