A Digital Office
Digital X-rays and digital cone beam technology are state-of-the-art in diagnosis and have 90% less exposure than the old X-ray systems. We have used this advanced technology in our office since its inception in 1994. Along with our intraoral dental cameras, these help us show and explain your conditions and recommended treatments so you can be involved in making an informed decision on what’s best for you. Our overhead display monitor replaces the bright overhead lights of yesteryear, allowing you to see what’s inside your mouth via digital images from an intraoral camera or x-rays—or turn it into a DVD player to watch a movie during treatment. We have three monitors in each room for comfortable viewing from multiple angles and high-intensity curing lights for state-of-the-art bonding of our tooth-colored restorations. We also utilize a variety of other digital options in our office:
DIAGNOdent is a high-powered dental laser that can detect early tooth decay.
Our dentists can use DIAGNOdent to detect the formation of cavities that we wouldn’t be able to see on an X-ray. Patients love our use of this revolutionary laser because it makes appointments painless and faster, and you can leave knowing your oral health is in tip-top condition.
TSCAN Computerized Bite Analysis
Your wellness and comfort is our highest priority. That’s why we invest in the best dental technology. The T-Scan Bite Analysis is a test that shows the precise relationship between how your teeth come together and their harmony (or disharmony) with your bones and muscles. It’s an integral element of diagnosing and treating TMJ disorder. It tests the strength and pressure with which each tooth bites down.
The T-Scan Analysis can show underbites, crossbites, overbites, and more. Dr.Kendall will use this tool to help him evaluate how your teeth, muscles, and jaw work together to look for underlying issues.
Myotronics K-7 Computer-Aided Muscle Analyzer and J-5 TENS Therapy
Our TMJ dentists use this technology to find your precise “neuromuscular bite position.” Aside from TMJ relief, having the correct bite also ensures that your dentistry is comfortable and less likely to wear or fracture with time.
