We utilize digital radiography which is safer (90% less radiation), and faster (3 seconds from your mouth to the computer screen) than conventional x-rays. We use Intra-oral cameras that allow you to see exactly what we see on a computer screen. The VELscope is a hand-held device that provides dentists and hygienists with an adjunctive examination system. Vizilite Plus is a rinse and special light that detects changes in cells. We use a dental transilluminator for the detection of caries and Isolite technology for providing a lighted, isolated field to work in. We use only the highest quality materials, ensuring that you will get the best possible results.
Digital radiographs show us much more information about your teeth and gums making a good diagnosis easier and more accurate.
Imagine a wand-like device that can take close-up pictures of your teeth and gums. The intraoral camera magnifies images, helping us to spot potential problems like cracked fillings, fractures, and early tooth decay. Now you can see what we see in your mouth, making it even easier to understand your dental condition and treatment options. With early diagnosis, we can treat these potential problems before they become big problems.
The VELscope is a hand-held device that provides dentists and hygienists with an easy-to-integrate adjunctive mucosal examination system for the early detection of a wide variety of oral diseases, including pre-cancer and cancer. Used in conjunction with the conventional intra-oral and extra-oral head and neck exam, the VELscope facilitates the discovery of mucosal abnormalities before they become visible under ordinary light. The VELscope is the only non-invasive adjunctive device clinically proven to help discover occult oral disease.
Vizilite Plus is a rinse and special light that detects changes in cells. As ViziLite Plus passes over oral tissue that has been treated with the rinse solution, normal healthy tissue will absorb the light and appear dark, abnormal tissue will appear white. The purpose of using ViziLite Plus is to identify tissue changes at their earliest stage; once abnormal tissue has been identified it is up to your dental professional to determine what the appropriate next steps are.
Fiber optic technology used in a dental transilluminator aids in the detection of posterior and anterior caries, calculus, and cracks/fractures. It also can be used to observe the progression of caries lesions and to help locate the root canal orifice.
