Patient Services: Dental Technology

Your enjoyable dental experience depends on your comfort and safety. At Laurel Manor Dental, we utilize the latest technological advances in dental equipment and state-of-the-art techniques to ensure your satisfaction with your visit and your continued excellent health.

Digital Radiographs

Digital radiographs (X-rays) are a technological advancement that result in less exposure to radiation for our patients and an almost instantaneous picture for your doctor. Unlike traditional, film-based X-rays, digital radiographs often show more detail, thereby possibly allowing detection of decay much sooner. In addition, they can be archived in our system for future reference and comparison. You will appreciate a more comfortable visit with less waiting and quicker treatment.

Intraoral Camera

An intraoral camera lets us show you exactly what we see inside your mouth. Our intraoral camera displays your teeth on an overhead monitor, allowing your doctor to explain your treatment plan tooth by tooth. The use of this camera allows us to work with you as a team in order to meet your dental care goals. We are happy to answer any questions you may have and to discuss your treatment options with you.

Cone Beam

Understanding the unique composition of your smile is vital to a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. Enjoy the latest digital x-ray technology at Laurel Manor Dental– Cone Beam 3D Imaging. Unlike flat, two-dimensional x-rays, Cone Beam images provide a 3D digital replica of the bones and tissue of your face, teeth, jaw and head. Your computerized image is easily manipulated, allowing your dental team to zoom on specific areas, view your scan from various angles and ultimately understand the complete makeup of your smile. This understanding is extremely useful when your Laurel Manor Dental team is planning dental implant treatments, as well as many other restorative and cosmetic dental treatments. Best of all, your Cone Beam scan is painless, takes only 10 seconds and safely operates with a lower dose of radiation than a traditional CT scan. The imaging system’s scanner rotates around your head one complete circle. Enjoy a truly customized treatment plan based on your exact dental needs!
