We are constantly striving to give our patients the finest dental care possible, and our investment in advanced technology is also a long-term investment in your oral health. We understand that using updated technology leads to more informed decision-making, allowing our patients to make the best possible decisions about their oral health.
Digital x-rays are a primary tool for early identification of dental problems. Detecting issues with x-rays before they become problematic can save you money in the long run. Early detection can help prevent the need for more extensive, expensive procedures or surgeries. X-rays are primarily used to detect:
||Internal tooth decay
||Cysts (fluid-filled sacks at the base of your teeth)
||Tumors, both cancerous and non-cancerous
||Teeth that are still coming in
At Jon C. Packman DDS, we use digital x-rays, which have several advantages over traditional film-based x-rays. Digital x-rays allow us to take x-rays with 1/5 of the radiation that you would receive from traditional dental x-rays. The worry of exposure to excess radiation is eliminated.
Large on-screen x-rays make patient communication more effective. The immediate observation of the images on the screen allows us to discuss your dental health quickly and accurately.
Digital radiography has greatly enhanced the practice of dentistry. It allows the patient and the doctor to see images of the teeth in higher resolution on a large format for easier detection of problems, all while decreasing the radiation exposure to the patient. The process we use further defines the radiograph, resulting in clinically meaningful images that are sharp, detailed and rich in contrast.
Images are available instantly after exposure, eliminating the wait and effort spent developing and mounting x-rays. If an image needs to be retaken, it can be done immediately. Digital format also allows us to send and receive your images electronically, allowing for a faster consultation with your dentist.
E4D same day crowns
Damaged teeth put your oral health at risk. Bacteria can enter the tooth and lead to a serious infection inside the tooth, leading to significant pain, abscesses and potential bacteria in the bloodstream. Dental crowns are one of the best ways to restore damaged teeth. Traditionally, however, the process for getting a dental crown is lengthy. It involves two visits, with up to two weeks in between. At Jon C. Packman DDS, we can provide you with same day crowns, with E4D.
Laser dentistry has revolutionized many medical procedures such as eye surgery and skin resurfacing. This has also recently become applicable for various dental procedures.
