High-Tech Dental Tools Increase Comfort, Safety & Efficiency
Dental technology has improved the way dentists perform exams, identify issues, and treat dental problems. Walnut Creek CA dentists Dr. Julie Kwon and Dr. Hani Jabbour believe that progressive dentistry combines personalized service with the best of modern technology. At Kwon & Jabbour General & Cosmetic Dentistry, you’ll discover the benefits of high-tech tools: increased efficiency, enhanced comfort, less invasive diagnostics and treatments, and improved safety.
Laser Cavity Detection
How can a small, handheld device that scans teeth effectively identify cavities? Very, very well! DiagnoDent® laser cavity detection harnesses laser light energy to locate areas of decay and suspicious spots that may turn into decay. An easy, non-invasive scan of your teeth with the DiagnoDent tool alerts the dentist to cavities and their precursors. Early detection often results in more conservative, less-costly treatment.
X-rays provide Dr. Kwon and Dr. Jabbour with detailed views of internal oral structures. They’re an invaluable tool, aiding in accurate diagnoses of dental problems. Older radiography techniques and equipment often proved uncomfortable for patients and required the use of chemical developers that took awhile to produce images. Digital X-rays have changed the landscape of dental radiography! A small sensor inserted in the mouth and moved from one grouping of teeth to another takes digital images that are available for immediate viewing on a computer monitor.
Digital radiography is more comfortable than traditional dental radiography, emits 80% less radiation, and requires no harsh chemicals (making it more environmentally friendly, as well).
Drs. Kwon and Jabbour use an intraoral camera to take up-close pictures of teeth and gums. This small, pen-shaped device is simply inserted in the mouth to photograph areas of concern. You and the doctor can view the images on a computer monitor in order to effectively plan treatment. Intraoral images provide an invaluable educational tool to let you see what the doctor sees.
