At Gateway Dental, we use state-of-the-art technology to give our patients the most comfortable and pleasant experience possible.
Digital technology allows us to diagnose with more accuracy and perform procedures with more precision. This makes treatment more efficient and comfortable for our patients.
Here are some of the technologies that you can expect to find at Gateway Dental.
Digital x-rays allow us to take images of your teeth and mouth so we can see what’s going on internally. X-rays give us the capability to detect issues very early on and see things that might be missed with just an examination. The images are also readily available so he can discuss your treatment needs with you in a timely manner.
We are able to take panoramic x-rays, which give us a full view of your entire mouth in one picture. These are helpful for looking at wisdom teeth and planning for orthodontics and implant surgeries.
Bite wing x-rays give us a close-up view of a few teeth at a time. This type of x-ray helps us detect decay or infections that might be happening in a single tooth.
The Intraoral Camera
It’s much easier to understand the type of treatment you need and why your tooth should be treated when you can see a picture of it. The intraoral camera is a tiny camera that fits in your mouth and takes full color digital images of your teeth. This gives us a close-up view of exactly what is going on in your mouth.
At Gateway Dental, all of our records our kept digitally rather than on paper. We find this makes things easier and more efficient for both our patients and staff.
Patients can fill out the paperwork needed for appointments easily and quickly online, while our staff can keep better track of patient history and records. It’s also easier to share information with other providers if necessary. Patients also have quick and easy access to the information they need to make decisions about their oral health.
