At Reyes Dental Group, we use the most advanced dental technology possible. We believe it is just as important to stay up-to-date on both the latest treatment techniques and technologies. Because our practice is dedicated to providing you with the safest and most convenient treatment options available, we utilize advanced digital X-ray technology, intraoral cameras and digital CT imaging technology in our office.
An intraoral camera helps give us a more complete view of everything that is going on inside your mouth. With the use of an intraoral camera, we can see every aspect of your teeth and mouth with great detail, uncovering cracked teeth, plaque deposits, cavities next to fillings, and excessive wear. When we can discover oral problems early on, your treatment is much less invasive, more transparent to you and much more cost effective.
At our office you’ll find the latest in dental equipment and techniques. Our office uses digital X-ray system that reduces radiation exposure. With this system you can take more than 500 dental X-rays with less exposure to radiation than you would have from one chest X-ray. And because digital radiography provides better resolution – our new X-ray procedures allow us to identify problem areas earlier.
Digital Impressions with iTero Scanner
ITero scanning is a form of 3D imaging that has the ability to capture thousands of images within the mouth. These images are then used to create more accurate models of the mouth, capturing every aspect effectively. Taking up to 20 pictures per second, the iTero scanner then sends these images to a specialized screen and within a mere minutes, a 3D model is constructed. Because of this efficiency, the iTero scanner is one of the best tools for us to have in our arsenal to better you as our patient.
Cone Beam 3D Imaging Technology
Cone beam 3D imaging technology is a type of advanced X-Ray that allows dentists to get an even clearer picture of your teeth and is a particularly valuable tool for dental implants. It’s referred to as cone-beam imaging because the X-Ray beam is the shape of a cone, unlike traditional fan-shaped X-Ray beams.
Although this 3D imaging isn’t required for every patient, it’s extremely useful for very precise treatments such as restorative dental implants, root canals, planning tooth extractions, and TMJ. It is also able to detect problems like jaw tumors or sinus issues.
