Advanced Dental Services & Technology – Lancaster, PA
State-of-the-Art, Modern Dental Care
Many of the most common dental instruments are still used in various dental offices today. However, our dental team at Dentistry for Life believes in incorporating state-of-the-art solutions to make procedures, diagnostics, and results more convenient and comfortable. Dental technologies are constantly evolving, and we are pleased to offer proven, modern methods to our dental patients. This can help us achieve more predictable and positive results. Check out what we offer below.
Being able to see exactly what our team sees is one of the most beneficial components of Carestream intraoral cameras. Early diagnosis of tooth decay, gum disease, or other possible damage can be easily seen using this handheld, camera-tipped device. Taking photos of a person’s smile and displaying the images in real-time on a nearby screen allows us to show where the problem exists and why treatment is necessary.
Using the Carestream digital sensor, our X-rays emit less radiation and allow for higher-resolution imaging. Instead of relying on the traditional radiographs of the past, those that were often less accurate and took time to develop, we can quickly capture images of a person’s mouth and file them digitally for quick retrieval in the future. Not to mention, these digital x rays are clear and precise, which is necessary for accurate treatment planning.
The 360-degree arm on the Carestream 8200 3D CBCT Scanner rotates around a patient’s head to snap hundreds of pictures of an individual’s teeth, gums, bone, tissues, nerves, and other various oral and facial structures. Necessary for treatment planning of dental implants and/or root canal therapy, our team can inspect the smallest areas of the three-dimensional, digital model to ensure optimal placement and preparation. Instead of risking potential complications, this device lowers the chance of problems to ensure greater success of treatment.
Digital Impression System
Cold, messy dental putty was once the only way to capture dental impressions to fabricate a crown. When restorations or other dental appliances were required, this process was often timely and gag-inducing for many individuals. With CEREC technology, we can easily scan a person’s teeth to generate a 3D model on a nearby screen. Within minutes, the image will develop and allow us to make appropriate adjustments to ensure a comfortable fit once the restoration is completed.
