Over the many years that Dr. Crofoot has been in dental practice, dental technology has vastly improved. We are confident that the technology we have at Cornerstone Dental of Rexburg 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!
Highly-Detailed All-Digital X-Rays
Proactive Early Cavity Detection Systems
Informative Intraoral Cameras
Did you ever wonder what it would be like to be seeing what your dentist sees 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 Dr. Crofoot 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 discover the development of tooth decay, the more effectively we can provide treatment that stops it in its tracks. With the CariVu Portable Cavity Detection device, our dental office can do precisely that. By using transillumination technology, Dr. Crofoot 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, causing patients unnecessary harm. With the advent of digital X-ray technology, we can dramatically reduce the amount of radiation exposure (typically by 90%), capture detailed images of your many oral structures more quickly, and magnify or color-code them to help you better understand the status of your current oral health. Plus, there’s no need for darkrooms, developments, or hazardous chemicals just to confirm the condition of your oral health.
As a state-of-the-art imaging tool, the CBCT Cone Beam Scanner has revolutionized the way dentists approach complex dental procedures. This advanced imaging system allows Dr. Crofoot to capture 3D images of a patient's teeth and jaw structure with incredibly high precision and detail. With this scanner, we can accurately diagnose dental conditions that may not be visible through traditional X-rays or visual examinations alone, leading to more accurate treatment plans for our patients.
Additionally, the CBCT Cone Beam Scanner reduces radiation exposure while providing faster scan times compared to other imaging systems. As an innovative tool for modern dentistry, this technology has allowed us to serve our patient's needs better while staying ahead of industry trends and advancements.
