Gulfport Dental Technology
Dental technology has come a long way. Gone are the days of the foot powered drill and pliers! Modern dental technology has made dentistry safer, faster, and incredibly comfortable. Have a look at some of the technologies we use.
CEREC is an digital system that allows us to design and produce dental restorations such as crowns in our office instead of a dental laboratory. This allows us to provide you with same day restorations.
These tiny high definition cameras fit right in your mouth! They let us see the inside of your mouth from almost any angle and are a valuable diagnostic tool.
Digital X-rays use digital images rather than film. Using software tools, we can zoom in on these images, improving our ability to detect and diagnosis decay and injury. Digital X-rays also use much less radiation than film based X-rays.
3D CT Scans
Digital 3D CT scans let us generate a 3D computer model of your skull, jaws and teeth. Using a monitor, we can rotate and view this model from any angle. This is an important tool for implant placement, orthodontics and diagnosing TMJ.
