Our Advanced Technology in Grants Pass
We want to make every step of your dental experience as smooth, easy, and comfortable as possible, which is exactly why we utilize some of the latest, most state-of-the-art technology available today. Our advanced tools allow us to catch, diagnose, and treat dental issues much faster as well as show you exactly what your dentist is seeing so you can better understand your dental care. If you haven’t been to the dentist for a while, you’ll be amazed by some of the things we can do now!
So much of dentistry involves trying to explain to a patient something they can’t actually see, but thanks to our intraoral camera, this barrier is finally removed. This pen-sized camera can easily move within the mouth to capture high-resolution images of the teeth and gums we can then display on a large chairside monitor. We’ll be able to show you exactly what your dentist is seeing, helping them to better explain why they might be recommending certain treatments.
Digital X-rays are an improvement over traditional film X-rays in almost every way you can imagine. Firstly, they can create highly-detailed images much faster, and they don’t require toxic darkroom chemicals to be developed. Even better, they expose our patients (and us!) to 90% LESS radiation. And, because everything is entirely digital, the images can be easily sent, stored, and displayed on a nearby monitor for you to view with your dentist.
CT / Cone Beam Scanner
While regular X-rays are great, sometimes we need a little more information than they can provide, and for that, we like to use our CT/Cone Beam Scanner. This device enables us to create a fully 3D X-ray image of your teeth, jaw, and other surrounding structures. This not only helps us gain a more global understanding of your dental health, but it also helps us precisely plan more complicated procedures such as dental implant placement or wisdom tooth extraction.
