At NKS Dental, we use state of the art technology to include:
- Intraoral Camera – The latest technology in dentistry is giving patients an inside look at their teeth and a better image and understanding of the state of their dental health. The intraoral camera, now used by Dr. Shah, allows patients to see their teeth up close and in color, using a pencil-sized wand with a tiny lens that can be pointed to any area of the mouth.
- Digital X-Rays – Similar to traditional X-ray systems, digital radiography allows dentists to detect decay, bone loss, and help with root canals. To take a digital X-ray, dentists will place a sensor on the tooth that looks like a piece of film. The process is a little faster than traditional X-ray system, so patients’ exposure to radiation is decreased. Once the picture is taken, dentists can adjust the contrast and brightness to optimize diagnosis and find even the smallest areas of decay. Another benefit of digital radiography is the elimination of chemicals to process the film, which of course is greener for the environment. The image is immediately brought up on the computer screen, so treatment is no longer delayed while the films are being developed. Perhaps the greatest benefit of digital images, however, is that they reduce radiation by as much as 80 percent.
We look forward to welcoming you to our dental family.
