By utilizing the most advanced technology available, Dr. Simon ensures that each patient achieves optimal results. Some of the state of the art technology we have implemented here at our Clinton Dental Office includes digital x-rays, intra-oral digital photography, Same Day Tooth Restorations and 1-Hour Tooth Whitening
Digital radiography (digital x-ray) is the latest technology used to take dental x-rays. This technique uses an electronic sensor (instead of x-ray film) that captures and stores the digital image on a computer. This image can be instantly viewed and enlarged helping the dentist and dental hygienist detect problems easier. Digital x-rays reduce radiation 80-90% compared to the already low exposure of traditional dental x-rays.
The intra-oral camera broadcasts images for both the patient and doctor to see. Instantaneously the images of your xrays are sent to a computer screen so that both the patient and doctor can review your oral health together. This wonderful new technology allows you to relax in your chair while simultaneously observing a real-time movie of the inside of your mouth magnified beyond normal size on an adjacent computer monitor. Not only does this make it simple to see and understand what is happening in your mouth, but it makes it simple for us to keep incredibly accurate records from one visit to the next.
The intra-oral technology provides xrays at a much lower dose and delivers up to 60-80% less radiation than standard x-rays. These intra-oral cameras not only increase the dentist-patient communication, but can also aid in insurance claim reimbursement, by including col-md-6or images along with traditional radiographs.
Watch TV While Being Worked On
Enjoy your favorite television show during your dental procedure. Whether it be your favorite soap opera or an intense football game, you are in control of the remote control.
We offer nitrous oxide at our office that can be used at any of your restorative appointments. For a small fee, nitrous oxide can provide a state of relaxation. Although it does not put you to sleep, it can allow the patient to have the necessary dental work done while providing them with a level of calmness.
