Dental Technology Grand Rapids Dentis

Our state-of-the-art technology ensures accuracy, efficiency, and comfort. Our dental equipment is safe, effective, and well-maintained.

Some of our dental technologies include those listed below:

Digital X-Rays

Our digital X-rays magnify and enhance your teeth for better diagnosis and treatment. This technology allows us to take images of your teeth. We can then display them on a computer screen fast and easy.

Digital X-rays let us view your teeth and surrounding structures with remarkable accuracy. These images provide the information we need to plan your dental treatment.

Digital X-rays need much less radiation than traditional film X-rays. Digital X-rays are safe and effective dental technology.

Panoramic X-Rays

A Panoramic X-ray machine rotates around your entire head. That way, we have a 360-degree view of your teeth, sinuses, and the bone structure of your head and jaws. This provides a more complete image than standard X-rays. Panoramic X-ray imagery is a valuable resource for both diagnosis and treatment planning.

Intra-Oral Camera

The intra-oral camera is about the size and shape of a pen. We use it to record images of your teeth, gums, mouth, and tongue from inside your mouth.

Due to its small size and sleek design, it is comfortable, easy to use, and able to view a wide range of angles. The intra-oral camera is a safe and effective tool that we can use with patients of every age.

The intra-oral camera is a valuable resource for both diagnosis and treatment planning. Each time we use the intra-oral camera, we use a new disposable cover. This ensures your health and safety at all times.

We can store, print, or delete digital images captured by the intra-oral camera.

Cavitron

The Cavitron is a handheld device used in periodontal deep cleaning that uses ultrasonic technology to remove calculus from teeth and gums. The Cavitron is fast, gentle, and effective.

With the Cavitron, patients enjoy a more comfortable experience. It also allows us to reduce the time we spend scaling and polishing.

Air Abrasion

Our office is equipped with modern air abrasion technology. We use a small handheld device to blow a stream of air and tiny aluminum oxide particles against your tooth. This safely blasts away tooth decay and removes surface stains.

We may use air abrasion as part of a cosmetic or restorative treatment. For example, we may need to prepare a tooth for bonding or repair cracked or worn teeth.
