Dental Technology at Kevin H Gropp, DDS – Dentist Northridge
Digital X-rays are quickly becoming adopted by many in the dental industry. A digital X-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth and put it into an imaging program. Within this imaging program, several tools will enable the dentist to take a very close look at the teeth and surrounding structures with incredible accuracy. As a benefit to the patient, the digital X-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard X-ray. This is because the digital version of the X-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind.
The intraoral camera is an excellent diagnostic tool for viewing different angles in the mouth. The camera allows us to view the entire mouth on a monitor to get a closer look at potential issues. The patient will be able to see the images we are seeing. These digital images are also excellent for gaining procedure acceptance from insurance companies.
The Diagnodent helps detect dental caries at the earliest possible stage so that the most appropriate treatment can be presented to you.
Diagnodent is a fluorescent laser that finds cavities beneath the tooth’s surface. There are often cavities that x-rays and the explorer do not see. This advanced technology helps to preserve a more significant amount of your tooth structure by uncovering dental decay before it progresses too far.
Endodontics, more commonly known as root canal, is a procedure where the roots or nerves of the tooth are removed. This is often because they are infected, and the tooth is causing pain.
Rotary Endodontics is a way of performing the root canal utilizing a specific electrical handpiece. This tool often makes the process faster and allows the dentist to complete the process with greater ease.
