Technology makes all the difference in the world when it comes to dentistry. The advanced instruments at Cove Choice Dental have completely transformed our approach to diagnosing oral health issues and planning complex dental treatments – and that’s not even mentioning how they save our patients time and discomfort. You can learn about some of our technology on this page before you call us to schedule your next appointment.
Obviously, it’s very difficult for you to take a detailed look inside your own mouth, which can make it hard to picture what your dentist is talking about when they’re describing your oral health issues to you. Our intraoral cameras make it easier for us to show you what we’re talking about; the pictures we take of your mouth are displayed on a chairside monitor, where we can point out problem areas to you in order to fully explain the situation.
X-rays are nothing new in the world of dentistry; they’ve long been an important tool in checking for unseen cavities and other oral health issues. But with the change to digital technology, X-rays can now be developed almost instantly and displayed on our computer monitor – no more darkrooms filled with environmentally harmful chemicals. Better yet, digital X-rays emit far less radiation, making them a safer option for you and your loved ones.
Did you even have to get a physical dental impression made for a crown or some form of tooth replacement? You might remember sitting still for an uncomfortably long period of time while holding dental putty in your mouth. Instead of relying on this messy and time-consuming approach, we can instead use our digital impression system to scan your mouth and create a three-dimensional model that helps us design a dental restoration that fits perfectly in your unique smile.
Anesthesia is essential for lengthy dental procedures, but some patients might become anxious when it comes to needles. The Wand Anesthesia System is far more comfortable than a traditional syringe and has been shown to help patients stay calm while anesthesia is administered. The system allows us to closely control the flow rate and pressure of the anesthesia during the injection, ensuring that it’s administered at a speed that you’re comfortable with while still being effective.
We have not forgotten the traditional methods of checking for cavities, but advancements in technology have given us the ability to check for decay in its earlier stages in more locations throughout your mouth. Our cavity detection system makes it easier to find oral health issues early on when the issue will be easier to treat. This is accomplished via a special light that makes it easier to see the areas where decay has occurred.
