Our objective at Grand Dental – Naperville is to make all of your treatments quick, precise, and comfortable. That’s why we use the most up-to-date technology that the dental world has to offer. By implementing helpful innovations like digital X-ray systems and intraoral cameras in our dental office, we can detect even the tiniest issues in your mouth, allowing us to treat them before they damage your smile. To learn more about how this technology helps us care for your smile, continue reading below.
A small camera is attached to the end of a handheld, pen-like device. By placing it in your mouth, we can see what your teeth and gums look like when magnified several times. This high-definition view is displayed on a chairside monitor that lets you see exactly what we see. You can be just as involved in your oral healthcare as we are!
Traditionally, dental offices would use film X-rays to obtain images of the area hidden beneath the gums. However, this method sent radiation through the body. With digital X-rays, we can capture a clearer image while cutting down on radiation exposure by as much as 90 percent!
Our CT/Cone Beam Scanner lets us capture a panoramic, 3D image of your teeth and other oral structures. This instrument can create a full blueprint of your mouth and face when digital X-rays aren’t quite enough, like when we’re planning for dental implant placement, ensuring precise treatment.
Whether you’re undergoing gum disease therapy, your child needs a frenectomy, or you simply wish to correct a “gummy” smile, you’ll likely get acquainted with our soft tissue laser. This handheld device emits a concentrated beam of light that allows us to remove infected or excess oral tissue without using a scalpel. The laser cauterizes as it goes, reducing the risk of infection, practically eliminating bleeding, and shortening recovery times.
