Intraoral cameras can provide invaluable educational insight during the checkup process, both for our team members and the patients themselves! The camera-tipped wand is expertly maneuvered through the mouth to capture high-resolution images of the teeth, gums, and existing restorative work. These images are instantly transferred to a monitor in the operatory for easy viewing, which means that Dr. Ornelas can refer to them again and again as you discuss any signs of damage, potential treatment options, and more.
Digital radiography is superior to the traditional film of yesteryear in virtually every way, allowing our team to capture highly detailed X-rays and make them available for viewing in mere seconds – no hours of darkroom development required. Better yet, this advanced technology minimizes radiation exposure dramatically, which makes the diagnostic process safer for patients of all ages. There’s no need for oversized filing cabinets or harmful environmental waste either.
Soft Tissue Laser
Lasers are swiftly becoming the future of dentistry, and for good reason – they’re much more precise and comfortable than traditional tools! Here in Crown Point, we’re proud to utilize a revolutionary soft tissue laser when performing several types of treatment that involve the gums. Not only is bleeding kept to a minimum, virtually eliminating the need for sutures, but patients can expect to recover from their procedure on a much faster timeframe as well.
