Intraoral Digital Scanning

If you’ve ever had an impression made of your mouth, you know that the process can be messy or can trigger a sensitive gag reflex. That’s exactly why we use an intraoral digital scanner at our practice whenever possible. The digital scan is more accurate, doesn’t tend to make the patient gag, and, to be honest, is just plain really cool!

The scanner is a 30fps movie camera that records 2-dimensional images that are laced together by a computer algorithm to create a 3-dimensional, printable model accurate to 25 microns. This clear, 3D model of your teeth, gums, and other oral structures can be used for a variety of procedures such as crafting customized crowns and mouthguards.

Digital X-Rays

X-rays are an essential part of a thorough dental examination. They show our dental team areas of concern that aren’t visible to the naked eye. Digital X-rays improve the process by being faster, safer, and more comfortable. Best of all, they significantly reduce the amount of radiation you’re exposed to, so you can rest easy knowing that your long-term health is protected.

Digital X-ray images are available immediately because they don’t have to be processed. That means we can detect any dental issues quicker and develop a treatment plan right away, increasing the odds of a successful outcome.

Digital Panoramic Imaging

In addition to digital X-rays and CBCT scans, we offer an additional diagnostic tool: digital panoramic images. Dental panoramic scans can show an image of your entire mouth in one scan to provide context for your dental issues. They are especially useful when assessing the position of wisdom teeth and for the evaluation of TMJ issues.

Cone Beam CT Scans

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is an incredible piece of dental technology that has improved our diagnostic process. CBCT scans are similar to panoramic X-rays except they show dental issues in much more detail, in three dimensions, and provide data that is invisible to a 2-dimensional image. This allows our dental team to establish a more accurate diagnosis and to provide more accurate treatment for you.

CBCT machines take a series of 2-dimensional images from which intricate computer software creates a comprehensive 3D overview of your jaw and head. CBCT scans take under one minute to complete and cause no discomfort for your convenience.

Digital Cephalometric Imaging

Digital cephalometric images provide the necessary background for the planning of orthodontic and Invisalign® procedures. The study of these images allows Dr. Bobbitt to accurately predict the outcome and risks associated with the movement of teeth before anything else is done.

This allows us to correct tooth alignment and jaw issues more easily and accurately. We’ll also be able to see your surrounding tissues, including the gums and bone structure. This can help create customized oral appliances such as dentures and dental implants, as well as planning a tooth extraction.

Laser Dentistry

Lasers and dentistry may seem like an odd pair, but laser dentistry has changed the way many routine procedures are performed. There are several uses for dental lasers, including disease detection, soft tissue treatments, and hard tissue treatments.

We have three types of lasers in our practice:

  • DiagnoDent, a diagnostic diode laser used to identify tooth decay in the deep, inaccessible grooves of the teeth
  • Ivoclar Odyssey Navigator, a therapeutic diode laser used for the treatment of gum problems, cold sores, canker sores, and to improve gingival healing after a deep cleaning requiring periodontal scaling and root planing
  • Waterlase MD (Er, Cr: YSGG laser), a hard tissue laser used to treat tooth decay and prepare the teeth for fillings or crowns. It’s also used to alter gum and bone levels to facilitate crown and bridge therapy and can be used in oral surgery to improve implant dentistry outcomes.
