Top-Notch Dental Technology in our Office

Dental treatments today are quite different compared to the traditional, manual methods that were used many years ago. With the advancements that have occurred in the industry, we can use this technology to improve diagnosis and treatments. Here at Reflection Dental, we are committed to your dental health, which is why we offer the latest technology in our office. Below are some of the top-notch dental tools that we use, which are installed for every chair in our dental office:

Digital X-Rays

These digital x-rays provide the diagnostic information that is needed to see details that can’t be viewed during a basic dental exam. X-Rays help with the diagnosis of serious dental problems, including tooth decay, bone loss, abscesses, and other issues. These problems can be diagnosed with a shorter wait time, and the radiation exposure is much lower compared with traditional x-rays.

Panoramic Dental X-Ray

By using a very small dose of ionizing radiation, we can see your teeth, upper and lower jaws, and surrounding structures and tissues all in one picture for simple diagnosis. Rather than relying on film placed inside the mouth, a panoramic x-ray machine projects a beam through the patient onto film or a detector rotating opposite the x-ray tube, resulting in a non-invasive procedure.

Intra-Oral Cameras

Do you want a view of what the dentist sees in your mouth? Our intraoral camera technology uses a small piece of equipment to zoom in on the oral conditions that might be present on your teeth or gums. This camera is essential for proper diagnosis, and it is extremely helpful during the diagnosis process. The intraoral imaging equipment can be used for the diagnosis of problems such as broken fillings, tooth decay, cracked teeth, gum disease, plaque, and more.

Rotary Endodontics

Commonly known as “root canals,” Endodontics are used to remove the nerve of the tooth that is located within the root. If the tooth is painful and infected, then it might be necessary to perform a root canal. Rotary Endodontics is the technology system that we use, which involves a modern electrical handpiece. The technology improves the accuracy of the treatment and reduces the risk for the patient.

picassoPicasso Diode Soft Tissue Laser

Lasers have taken the dental industry to a higher level because there are many benefits available from the beam of light energy. We can use this laser for dental treatments such as gum disease and infections, and it also helps with sterilization and reducing bleeding during and after the dental appointment.

Technology Means Comfort in the Dental Office

These tools are designed to improve your experience when you are sitting in the dental chair. Additionally, we have TVs in every operating room so that you can watch your favorite show while we are working on your teeth.
