At Lakeview Pointe Dentistry, we’re pleased to stay up to date on the latest dental technologies and practices for your safety and convenience.
When dentists first came into existence and began practicing, they were working with mediocre equipment and early-stage treatment methods—it’s no surprise that from that initial time of dental practices many patients developed fear or anxiety over seeing a dentist.
If you or a loved one struggles with fear or anxiety over a dentist appointment, you’re not alone; however, thanks to our practice’s use of dental technology and our efforts to stay educated on the latest techniques and treatments, we’re in a position to provide high-quality dental care with the lowest amount of pain and discomfort possible.
Advances in dental technology enable our team at Lakeview Pointe Dentistry to more easily treat you for anything from a small cavity to the placement of a dental crown.
Types of Dental Technology at Lakeview Pointe Dentistry
Dental technology is always transforming and changing. Like any other type of medical field, the equipment we use as dentists is perpetually being tried, tested, and upgraded as new discoveries are made. You can trust that our practice will provide you with the latest and best dental technology. Two of the most useful forms of dental technology we use at Lakeview Pointe Dentistry are digital x-rays and intraoral cameras.
Traditional x-rays exposed many patients to significant levels of radiation. Thanks to our new digital x-rays, patients have minimal radiation exposure, and the process of taking images of your teeth is much faster.
Once the images have been captured, they are transferred directly to a nearby computer screen where our team can analyze them and look them over with you directly.
Intraoral cameras are small, hand-held devices that can fit inside your mouth. They allow us to get a much closer look at your teeth. Thanks to this device we can spot cavities and irregularities that would be difficult to catch normally, including chipped teeth, cracks in teeth, cavities, or potential gum disease.
