Advanced Dental Technology
Dr. Nguyen chooses carefully the advanced dental technology she utilizes at Pinnacle Dental. There are many guidelines that are followed. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and health of bone.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Dr. Nguyen utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50% less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnosting information. We may be able to see cavities better.
Digital X-Rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor. Digital X-Ray results in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you.
Intraoral cameras are an excellent means of allowing the patient to view potential dental conditions in their own mouth. It is much easier to understand what is happening in your mouth if you can see the problem on a computer monitor. This digital image can be utilized to provide information to insurance companies and other doctors if necessary.
