At Carmi Family Dental, as your dentists in Carmi, when we find dental technology that’s backed with science and helps to give you a more comfortable & predictable dental experience, we’re all for it. After all – our goal is the same as yours – to give you the beautiful, healthy, intact, and functional smile you deserve with the services we provide!
Lower Exposure To Radiation
Digital x-rays are just as accurate as film x-rays, plus they’re more comfortable for you! We can even look at them together when planning your treatment! Plus, this digital technology also exposes you and your loved ones to less radiation, which is particularly important to people who have undergone cancer treatment or are concerned about radiation exposure for other reasons.
What It Helps Us See
Because we’re a full-service practice, at Carmi Family Dental we need full-service x-ray technology. With selectable fields of view, we can see a variety of scans of your anatomy while you sit in comfort. Whether we’re creating a sleep apnea solution and need to see what your airway looks like, are planning your root canal therapy, or are creating guides for your dental implant treatment, this machine helps us create a predictable plan that you can count on. It can even show us your sinus area and help us see if your jaw joint is functioning as it should.
And of course, all x-rays show things that are not visible in a visual examination alone, such as: the condition of fillings, crowns and bridges, hidden tooth decay, abscesses, bone loss due to gum disease, and the presence of impacted or extra teeth. This technology is one of the most useful pieces of equipment we’ve invested in to continue giving you the best care available.
The Best Part?
It does all of this while you’re sitting or standing comfortably – in less than 10 seconds! You don’t need to worry about anything – other than what you’re going to do with all that extra time!
A clear picture makes for a sure dental strategy, and a safer and more comfortable way to make a proper diagnosis and a healthier mouth for you! To learn more about this amazing technology or to book a consultation, just give us a call! We’d love to welcome you to the Carmi Family Dental family and show you how easy a visit to your dentists in Carmi can be!
