At Swansboro Family Dentistry we use cutting-edge dental technology to provide you with safe, fast, and effective results!
Messy, hand-poured dental molds are a thing of the past. For all of our impressions, we use the Medit I700 Intraoral Scanner. This wand-shaped device allows Drs. Brown and Norris to get a comprehensive, 3-D view of the mouth and teeth both during examinations and throughout procedures.
Nomad X-Ray System
The Nomad X-Ray system has revolutionized intraoral dental x-rays for a faster and more efficient process, while creating a clearer image.
Piezoelectric Ultrasonic technology offers a minimally invasive solution for oral surgery that preserves the integrity of adjacent delicate soft tissues and vital structures with enhanced procedure precision. Some of the benefits of Piezosurgery are increased accuracy, accelerate healing following treatment, and enhanced comfort.
An intraoral camera is a handheld appliance that is shaped like a wand. The tiny camera at the tip of the appliance takes hundreds of pictures per second to capture an in-depth and accurate image of your mouth. This image is sometimes used to create a digital impression of your teeth and gums. A digital impression is particularly useful for same-day dental crowns.
In the past, most dental professionals had to use the traditional x-ray systems, which require film development. These days, we use digital x-rays due to their many benefits. A digital x-ray is safer and much quicker than its film predecessor. If the image comes out blurry, we can instantly retake a new one. Digital x-rays are a crucial diagnostic tool that helps us gain a better understanding of the inner workings of your mouth, more specifically the teeth, roots, and alveolar bone.
Cone Beam CT Scan
A cone beam CT scan is a diagnostic tool that produces a 3D representation of your teeth, gums, nerve pathways, and underlying bone structure within a single image. We typically utilize cone beam CT scans when a regular x-ray is not enough. Cone beam CT scans are ideal for surgical planning, the diagnosis of TMJ disorders and tumors, and the evaluation of bone structure and tooth orientation.
