At Gibson & Bartholomew Restorative and Esthetic Dentistry we use cutting-edge dental technology to provide you with safe, fast, and effective results!
An intraoral scanner is a handheld appliance that is shaped like a wand. The tiny camera at the tip of the appliance takes hundreds of photos per second to capture an in-depth and accurate image of your mouth without using messy impression materials. This image can then be sent off to any number of dental laboratories before you even the leave the chair. Such technology is more accurate than traditional impressions, and a lot less messy!
In the past, most dental professionals had to use the traditional x-ray systems, which require film development. These days, we use digital x-rays due to their many benefits. A digital x-ray is safer and much quicker than its film predecessor. If the image comes out blurry, we can instantly retake a new one. Digital x-rays are a crucial diagnostic tool that helps us gain a better understanding of the inner workings of your mouth, more specifically the teeth, roots, and alveolar bone.
Cone Beam CT Scan
Our office has access to a cone beam CT scan is a diagnostic tool that produces a 3D representation of your teeth, gums, nerve pathways, and underlying bone structure within a single image through referring doctors. We typically utilize cone beam CT scans when a regular x-ray is not enough. Cone beam CT scans are ideal for surgical planning, the diagnosis of TMJ disorders and tumors, and the evaluation of bone structure and tooth orientation.
