Our office is constantly updating and staying up-to-date with technology so that we can provide you with the best possible service. Some of our newer technological investments are listed below, along with the benefit that they provide to you, the patient. Advancements in technology not only allow us to provide you with more ideal treatment, but they also help Dr. Owens and his team can detect and diagnose any issues before they become a problem.
Digital X-rays are the most important technology that Dr. Owens uses to view and determine your oral health. Using state-of-the-art technology, digital X-rays allow us to get a clear, detailed picture of your teeth, bones, and joints. Digital X-rays are low-radiation, high quality, and instantaneous.
Using an intraoral camera, we are able to easily and comfortably take images of your teeth and your mouth. The intraoral camera is a small video camera on a wand that we guide over and around your teeth to non-invasively capture images. These images are displayed on a screen in each operatory so that Dr. Owens can show you exactly what is going on in your mouth. A unique feature of the intraoral camera is the auto fluorescence technology which gives the ability to detect a cavity at different stages of its development thus allowing Dr. Owens to determine the most adequate treatment.
Cavitron Ultrasonic Scaler
The Cavitron Ultrasonic Scaler has been proven as the most effective approach to achieving a thorough cleaning while maintaining oral comfort. The high vibrational energy crushes and removes debris in the mouth, disrupting bacterial cells and biofilm. The therapeutic washing and flushing of the periodontal pocket and root surface removes deposits effectively and promotes overall gum health.
