Over the many years that Dr. Crofoot and Dr. Snarr have been in the office, dental technology has only improved. We believe the technology provided at Cornerstone Family Dental will allow us to practice better prevention and diagnostics, resulting in improved outcomes overall. These are not technologies that you can find at just any dental office, so feel free to give us a call to experience their benefits firsthand!
Did you ever wonder what it would be like to be sitting right alongside your dentist as they performed a routine exam? With the help of intraoral cameras, now you can! These handheld devices make it easy to view exactly what your dentists sees on a nearby screen. If you’re not sure why you need a dental crown or other treatment performed, the intraoral camera is sure to make that process much easier.
The sooner we can discover the development of tooth decay, the more effectively we can provide treatment that stops it in its tracks. With the CariVue Portable Cavity Detection device, our office can do precisely that. By using transillumination technology, our dentists can make your enamel appear transparent while the more porous lesions trap and absorb light. This makes it possible to see through the tooth, examine its internal structure, and catch carious lesions before they turn into cavities.
Traditional x-ray machines would give off large amounts of radiation, putting patients in unnecessary harm. With the advent of digital x-ray technology, we can dramatically reduce the amount of radiation exposed (typically by 90 percent), capture detailed images of your many oral structures more quickly, and magnify or color-code them so patients better understand the status of their current oral health. Plus, there’s no need for darkrooms, developments, or hazardous chemicals just to confirm aspects about your oral health.
