Dental Technologies Q & A

How can dental technologies enhance my treatment?

Many dental technologies available today can help improve the accuracy of your diagnosis and pinpoint issues that could have been overlooked. In addition, treatments are made easier by the convenience of advanced technologies, including intraoral cameras and sedation.Advanced imaging can help your dentist know the exact shape of your mouth in order to place dental implants correctly or view the severity of tooth decay.

What dental technologies are available?

Healthy Smiles Dental Care offers many of today’s most trusted dental technologies, including:

Cone beam imaging

Cone beam imaging is a technology that allows your dentist to create a 3-D image of your mouth and jaw. It can help your dentist view your mouth as well as create appliances specifically for your treatment.

Digital X-rays

Digital X-rays allow your dentist to see the inside of your jaw and other bones. Unlike traditional X-rays, digital images can appear instantly on a computer instead of being printed on film.

Intraoral cameras

Intraoral cameras allow your dentist to see inaccessible parts of your mouth from the inside. The device is a small camera that is shaped like a pen and can take high-quality photos of the inside of your mouth.

Panoramic X-rays

Panoramic X-rays are X-ray machines that rotate around your head to get a full view of every side of your jaw and facial structures. It is useful in both diagnosing problems and creating personalized dental appliances.


Sedation can help you relax before and during a procedure. With nitrous oxide, IV sedation, or oral sedation, you’ll feel calm and relaxed while your dentist works.

Which technologies will my dentist use?

Your dentist will select the technologies that will work best for you. For example, if you’re prone to anxiety, you’ll likely have the option to be sedated before any serious dental work begins.
