Diagnostic radiographs (x-rays) are essential to regular dental examinations. Within seconds, an enlarged image of your teeth and jaw can be viewed on a monitor, providing a clear picture of your mouth and the state of your oral health. Digital x-rays allow for the accurate diagnosis of hidden decay, impacted or extra teeth, cysts, tumors, abscesses, tartar buildup, and/or bone loss from gum disease. Plus, they expose our patients to far less radiation when compared to traditional x-rays.
Diagnodent® Laser Assisted Decay Detection is a tool used for for the earliest and most precise location of tooth decay. Early detection prevents the spread of decay, simplifies the filling process, and can resolve the issue before it becomes more complicated and costly to repair.
An extremely small camera allows our dentists to photograph the inside of our patients’ mouths, revealing the first signs of cavities, chipped or cracked teeth, gum disease, or receding gums. These images help our dentists work with our patients to develop a customized treatment plan that best addresses their oral health and cosmetic concerns.
WiFi in the Waiting Rooms
In order to provide you with a pleasant experience during your office visits,Dr. Basil has office-wide WiFi installed in both of her offices. While waiting time for an appointment is very short, WiFi gives the patient the opportunity to check on emails, review information on the web about dental treatments, and stream video and audio. We request you use headphones to to the latter two.
A Computerized Office
Striving for a paperless office is a giant step toward reducing unnecessary waste and helping to preserve the environment. Computerized files also help us communicate more quickly with insurance companies and laboratories while simultaneously keeping our patients’ personal information more protected than ever before.
