If you’re looking for an excellent dentist backed with an advanced practice, you can rest assured that Lakefront Dental is for you! Since we value patient comforts and convenience, we recently invested in a new digital panoramic x-ray machine! We’re proud to announce that we’re able to continue delivering top-notch dental care that’s up to date with the best dental technology.
Digital Panoramic X-ray Works
The panoramic x-ray machine is efficient in capturing the entire mouth in one single, high-definition image including the upper and lower jaws. This even includes the surrounding structures and tissues!
Rather than inserting uncomfortable trays into your mouth to take digital images, you can simply smile and have all of your teeth evaluated.
This is an important diagnostic tool that provides us with valuable information about the nasal area, sinuses, and the alignment of teeth and bone structures. This panoramic x-ray can be used to detect and treat:
- Gum disease before it advances
- Oral cysts
- Oral cancer
- Impacted teeth
- TMJ Disorder
We Work to Create Fast, Comfortable, and Ultimately Safe Appointments
Offering new technology is very exciting for us because we know that it’ll help our patients to have more positive dental experiences each time they enter our office. The unit used to take the digital x-rays is adjustable to optimize patient comfort. Once your head and neck are in a comfortable position, our new x-ray will safely take the images we need within seconds.
Another benefit that this x-ray offers is its ability to take bitewing radiographs without having to insert those pesky film sensors in your mouth. Sometimes patients would complain of an irritating poking feeling when taking older x-rays. Now, you don’t have to worry about that! This new technology allows patients that may have a strong gag reflex or larger bone growths within their jaw to receive untroubled treatment.
Lastly, a panoramic x-ray is a method of taking a complete image of your mouth with much less radiation compared to a traditional full set of x-rays.
Your Dentist Can Help You Detect an Array of Dental Problems
The new addition of this modern equipment helps our practice to handle a broader range of dental diagnoses and procedure. We’re focused on providing patients a wide-range of dental services to meet their needs. The panoramic digital x-ray helps our patients get the treatment they need without having to be referred out of our office.
