As skilled as our dentists are here at Bright Smiles Dentistry, their care wouldn’t be nearly as effective and comfortable without the leading-edge dental technology our dental office has invested in. Not only do these devices make our diagnoses and treatments more precise, but we’ve ensured that they’re 100% safe as well. Below, you can learn more about the advanced dental technology that we use to deliver truly modern care.

Intraoral Camera

Have you ever had a dentist explain your oral health issue to you, but you just couldn’t picture it in your mind? Thanks to our intraoral camera, that shouldn’t happen again! We can simply maneuver this handheld, wand-like device around in your mouth. It has a tiny camera on the tip, which displays high-definition, real-time images of your teeth and gums on a chairside monitor. You’ll be able to see exactly what our dentists are talking about and gain a clearer understanding of your oral health.

Digital X-Rays

Even our dentists’ expertly trained eyes can’t detect oral health problems beneath the surface of your teeth and gums. That’s where dental X-rays come in. Instead of traditional film, we use fully digital X-ray technology that develops higher-quality photos much more quickly. Digital X-rays also emit up to 90% less radiation, making them safe for children as well as adults.

CT/Cone Beam Scanner

To plan out particularly complex treatments, such as root canal therapy or dental implant placement, X-rays alone won’t be enough. In cases like these, we’ll use our CT/cone beam scanner to capture a three-dimensional, panoramic image of your entire mouth and jaw. This image gives us a detailed view of each and every one of your oral structures, including nerve pathways, allowing us to make incredibly accurate diagnoses and plan surgical procedures with the utmost precision.

Digital Impression System

Taking impressions of your teeth is the key to creating a crown, bridge, or other dental restoration that looks great, feels comfortable, and lasts for years to come. In the old days, dentists would capture impressions by having patients bite into a messy putty that tasted awful and made many patients gag. Thankfully, we make this process easier with our digital impression system. We simply scan the teeth with a small, pen-like instrument that quickly produces accurate models without discomfort.

Cavity Detection System

Cavity detection system

Traditionally, dentists would check for tooth decay using a metal probe, but small cavities could still evade discovery with this method. Luckily, dental technology has progressed quite a bit since then. Our advanced cavity detection system can spot tooth decay in its earliest signs, often long before a patient would have noticed it on their own. This enables us to treat the cavity promptly and conservatively.
