At Silverlake Smiles, we strive to provide our patients with the best possible dental experience. That’s why we utilize the latest dental technology, from digital x-rays to 3D imaging. With our state-of-the-art equipment, our patients in Silverlake, CA, and the surrounding area can enjoy excellent oral health while getting the smile they’ve always wanted.
One of the biggest advances in dental technology stems from digital x-rays, which use up to 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays. We use this equipment at Silverlake Smiles to get a clear picture of the patient’s teeth and jaw. This allows us to make an accurate diagnosis and develop a treatment plan that is best for the patient.
Not only are digital x-rays better for the patient, but they are also better for the environment. This cutting-edge technology doesn’t require any film or chemicals, so it is a more sustainable option.
Silverlake Smiles proudly offers soft-tissue lasers for our patients. Lasers have become an important tool in dental care, and we use them for various procedures, including gum contouring and biopsies.
Soft tissue lasers make a more precise option than traditional scalpel instruments, and they cause less bleeding and swelling. Lasers also sterilize the area as they work, which reduces the risk of gum disease and tooth decay.
Modern dental technology has brought about many advances in the field, making dental visits quicker and more comfortable for patients. One such piece of technology is the intra-oral camera. This small, handheld device allows our dentists to get a close-up of the patient’s mouth, teeth, and gums.
With this detailed view, we can more easily identify problem areas and develop a dental treatment plan. Intra-oral cameras also allow patients to see what our dentists see, giving them a better understanding of their condition.
Our dental practice in Silverlake is proud to offer the iTero Scanner, a digital impression system that provides accurate, precise, and comfortable 3D scans. This technology eliminates the need for uncomfortable, messy, and time-consuming impressions.
In addition to being more comfortable for patients, the iTero Scanner provides greater accuracy than traditional impression methods. This allows us to create quality dental crowns, bridges, and implants that fit perfectly and look natural.
A CT scanner refers to a piece of diagnostic equipment that uses x-rays and computer technology to create detailed images of the teeth, jaws, and face. We use this dental technology to plan dental implants, assess jawbone density, or diagnose TMJ disorders.
CT scans are safe and painless, and they provide our dentists with valuable information that helps us provide the best possible care for our patients.
