Digital radiography uses an estimated 40-90 percent less radiation than conventional film x-rays. Digital x-rays use a digital image capture device in place of traditional film, sending an image immediately to a computer. The result is a highly-detailed image of the mouth, and its contrast and resolution can be enhanced to more easily diagnose dental problems and determine the very best treatment for each case.
This means more safety and better accuracy for you.
We are proud to offer same-day crowns and restorations using the E4D Dentist™ system. With E4D same-day crowns, you don't need to suffer through traditional impressions or temporaries. Rather, you can be in and out of the office with a permanent, natural-looking, metal-free restoration in a single visit! We simply scan your teeth using a laser that creates an image we can send to an in-house milling unit. This milling unit then creates a porcelain crown that blends with your surrounding teeth in just minutes. The dentist then adjusts, characterizes with color, or polishes the restoration to a final luster. Experience a faster, more patient-friendly restoration service!
When you come in for a visit, we aim to provide the best, most accurate and most thorough diagnosis possible — and with recent breakthroughs in leading technology, we can.
One of our newest technologies, the CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography), is a cutting-edge alternative to the traditional CT scan and an incredible improvement on the traditional x-ray. This machine takes 3D and digital panoramic images of your mouth, allowing us to monitor growth and diagnose problems, as well as view your entire mouth from every angle — in less than 20 seconds!
Paperless charting means more efficiency and more accuracy. An office that has “gone digital” records x-rays and charting with the aid of the computer and keeps all patients’ dental records electronically. Additionally, it cuts back on paper use. With traditional paper charting, information can be lost in translation from doctor to hygienist to assistant. Even handwriting differences and coding make the charts look different. The computer eliminates this problem by standardizing charting methods, making it easy to understand dental charts, view up-to-date information and keep records accurately. When needed, this method also allows dental offices to more easily share information with other healthcare providers.
Many offices utilize electronic claims processing. This means that rather than being sent through the mail, a dental claim is sent electronically to an insurance company with the click of a button. We can submit information more efficiently and with fewer errors. This benefits patients because the turn-around time on claims is faster, and fewer claims are returned or denied.
We are happy to submit your dental claims to your insurance company on your behalf. Please let us know if you have any questions about the e-claim process.
