When you seek care at our office, be assured that our dentists and staff utilize the latest in technology to enhance the quality of your dental care.
The Dentist Jamaica uses air-driven “hand-pieces” (the dental term for “drills”). While acceptable for many procedures, these “whiney sounding” air-powered hand pieces all have a degree of non-concentricity; they do not rotate perfectly smoothly.
Our dentists choose carefully which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow regarding radiographs. X-rays allow us to see things we cannot see with the naked eye. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth and determine the health and level of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. We utilize Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is approximately 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographic film, this means less radiation. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities better.
Digital imaging allows us to easily access and transfer patient’s radio graphs to other specialists and/or insurance companies.
Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead viewing the image on a light box.
