Dentistry is always marching forward, and we are determined to match its pace! Avion Dental and Orthodontics always goes out of its way to stay at the cutting edge of the latest dental technologies, allowing all of our patients to enjoy improved comfort during each procedure as well as greater precision and efficiency on our end. You can learn more about our state-of-the-art instruments right here before you call us for an appointment.
It’s basically impossible for you to take a good look inside your own mouth, but our intraoral cameras allow us to give you a detailed view of your teeth, gums, and other oral structures. With this useful visual aid, we can explain any existing dental issues clearly and answer questions you have more effectively. The high quality of the images also helps us detect small cavities and infections that could be potentially overlooked with the naked eye.
X-rays captured on traditional film were used by dentists for years, but digital radiography has completely transformed the entire process. These X-rays can now be developed in just a few seconds, and they can also be easily stored and filed on a computer instead of a bulky filing cabinet. Digital X-rays are also notably safer because they expose patients to much less radiation overall, and they do not require the use of a chemical-filled darkroom to be developed.
We want any treatment we begin to be a complete success, and to guarantee this, we need to gather as much information as possible about your mouth at the start. Our computed tomography (CT) cone beam scanner can create comprehensive three-dimensional or panoramic models of your mouth and its various oral structures, capturing even the smallest details so that we can plan each and every treatment as accurately as possible to deliver the best results.
A mock-up or impression of your smile is invaluable for creating a restoration that will fit perfectly and blend in with the rest of your teeth as seamlessly as possible. Traditional impression materials are typically very messy, and many patients find them uncomfortable. At our dental office, we prefer to create digital impressions based on scans of your mouth. This type of impression is dramatically easier to make, far more reliable, and never requires retakes.
