Oral health is an essential part of your well-being. If you develop any oral condition, technological advancements have made diagnosing and treating various oral health conditions easier. At Chicago Dental Esthetics we use the latest and most advanced dentistry techniques to ensure maximum efficiency. We will provide relief to your teeth or gums in the shortest time possible. We use various forms of technology in treating oral conditions.
Intraoral cameras and digital impressions play a key role in determining the cause of ailments in oral exams. An intraoral camera is a crucial tool that we use to thoroughly examine the inside of your mouth as we look for fractured, infected, decayed, corroded, or loose teeth. We also use the camera to check for the presence of bacteria and plaque buildup. Thanks to intraoral cameras and digital cameras, we can identify these conditions early and treat them before they become problematic. This technology allows you to see the condition of your teeth and gives you an accurate evaluation of your oral health.
We will explain the condition you are suffering from while pointing it out on the screen in real-time. Additionally, the intraoral camera allows our experts to monitor your progress when undertaking treatment successfully. We can tell whether the condition is improving by having the camera check out the affected area. During oral exams and other checkups, intraoral cameras can also be used to examine hidden parts of your mouth and show if you need treatment or cleaning. This goes a long way in making your oral health better.
Digital x-rays are a form of dentistry technology we use regularly. Compared to traditional x-rays, digital x-rays are faster and contain significantly lower radiation. When you are subjected to digital x-rays, the image of your mouth reflects on the computer screen within seconds. We can then zoom into the image to analyze specific parts and enlighten you on your condition. This gives you great insight into your oral health. The fact that digital x-rays contain 90% less radiation makes them less harmful for patients compared to traditional x-rays. Even better, the images obtained through digital x-rays are of a higher quality and reveal even the tiniest of details in your mouth — they don't pixelate even after we magnify them. Therefore, thanks to digital x-rays, we can easily identify oral conditions and enlighten you on the specific problem you are suffering from.
3D imaging technology has made identifying and examining oral health problems easier. Generally, a 3D imaging scan helps our professionals view and work on your jawbone when placing an implant in your mouth. Dental implants are a common method of replacing missing teeth and will need 3D imaging during their placement. While 3D imaging technology can be used in a wide range of other dental procedures, we often use it in implant placement. Thanks to this technology, implants are placed accurately and smoothly into the surrounding bone structure.
