Digital radiography has transformed the way we take dental X-rays. Digital X-rays create a faster, comfortable, and convenient experience for the patient, while minimizing radiation exposure and yielding clearer, more accurate images.
Digital X-rays can better detect the following dental problems:
- Decay in between teeth
- Abnormalities in the oral cavity
- Improper tooth root positioning
- Cysts & abscesses
- Filling fractures
- Tooth infections
- Bone loss
Digital X-rays help in many of our general and restorative dental procedures, including dental crowns, root canals, dental implants, and more.
It’s not uncommon for patients to feel uncomfortable about receiving local anesthesia. To minimize the numbness of a traditional syringe, we utilize The Wand®, a computer-controlled local anesthetic system that targets individual teeth and produces a steadier, more effective, and pain-free numbing experience.
Whether you’re undergoing a cavity filling, root canal therapy, or a restorative procedure, our dentists are here to make the process as easy and comfortable for you as possible.
Cone beam 3D imaging technology has allowed Southland Smiles to deliver dental care of the highest quality in a variety of areas. Cone beam (CT) scans produce accurate 3D images of the oral cavity, allowing us to examine the oral cavity in its entirety, plan, and deliver the best treatment.
With cone beam 3D imaging, we’re capable of the following:
- Evaluating the jaws & face for TMJ disorder
- Analyzing dental or facial trauma
- Diagnosing tooth decay & other abnormalities
- Planting dental crowns & implants more precisely
- Detecting endodontic problems
Our goal is to not only detect, diagnose, and administer treatment more efficiently but to keep our patients informed on their oral health, as well.
CariVu™ Cavity Detection
The CariVu™ cavity detection system diagnoses tooth decay in the earliest stages, long before the signs of a cavity become noticeable. This laser-based technology both diagnoses and treats early-stage cavities, reducing the need for larger fillings and minimizing the chances of worsening tooth decay and complications.
