Our commitment to continuing education and the latest technology available in modern dentistry is an important part of our dedication to delivering the highest level of dental care possible. You will find many of the latest technologies that modern dentistry offers listed here.
We are continually updating the office with new equipment and services to make your dental care more comfortable and accurate.
3-D Cone Beam Imaging
3-D cone beam (Sirona) is a remarkable technology for complete treatment planning. It creates a three-dimensional image so that your dentist can easily view your face, jaw, and teeth. It's an invaluable tool for diagnosing and virtual treatment planning, and the images take less than ten seconds to acquire.
We use 3-D imaging for accurate dental implant placement and restoration, TMJ treatment, and extractions.
CEREC Same-Day Crowns
Patients no longer have to wait weeks for their final bridge or crown. We can complete restorative treatment in a single visit with CAD/CAM CEREC technology. By digitally scanning the tooth or teeth, we can upload accurate information into our software, which is transferred to our in-office milling machine for the fabrication of ceramic restorations, much like a 3-D printer.
CEREC produces beautiful, natural-looking restorations that are strong and durable, lasting you for many years to come.
Digital Dental X-Rays
Digital x-rays reduce radiation by 90 percent, provide instant viewing on your chairside monitor, and produce the highest resolution images available today.
X-rays are an essential part of an accurate diagnosis. We recommend routine x-rays to identify dental decay and other conditions in their earliest stages when they are easier to treat.
Our intraoral camera takes crisp, instant photos of individual teeth and areas of the mouth for patients and dentists to review together. This helps our patients understand their conditions and choose an option to restore their dental health based on understanding. We also take intraoral photos to send to insurance companies when they request additional information to pay a claim and store them in your electronic file to compare dental conditions as they change over time.
At Norfolk County Dental Care, we offer both nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation to make it more relaxing for anxious patients to have their treatment. Give us a call and arrange a consultation to discuss if sedation dentistry will work for you.
