Most of us would prefer to spend as little time as necessary in the dental chair, and your family dentist in Birmingham, AL understands that. That is why so many dental practices today offer state-of-the-art technology that makes your appointments efficient, stress-free, and productive.
Here is some of the equipment you are likely to see in our modern dental office and how they benefit you:
Making decisions about your oral health is much easier when you can see for yourself what’s happening, and intraoral cameras give you the close-up view you need.
The images are displayed in real-time on your chairside monitor, and the benefits are:
- No guessing about what conditions your dentist sees
- You are an informed participant in your dental care
- Visualizing the problem for yourself gives you the confidence to make informed decisions
Dental x-rays are an essential part of your oral health care, and digital x-rays provide the most in-depth view of what’s happening inside your teeth. The benefits they offer are:
- Faster and more accurate diagnoses
- Ability to manipulate the image so you can see problems in detail
- You and your dentist can discuss the x-ray image together
- Expose you to 80 percent less radiation than film x-rays
- Flat digital sensors improve your comfort when taking x-rays
