Using the most advanced dental technology is just as important as staying up to date on the latest treatment techniques. Because Dr. Yeh's practice is dedicated to providing you with the safest and most convenient treatment options available, we utilize advanced digital X-ray technology in our office.
Digital X-rays provide several advanced imaging options designed to save time, provide clearer dental photos, and expose patients to less radiation than traditional X-ray technology.
We have digital intraoral sensors as well as a state of the art digital panoramic machine.
Our practice is focused on making your dental experience as comfortable as possible. At your next appointment, we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have about our digital X-ray technology.
We know the importance of prevention when it comes to your dental health, and we’re always looking for new, improved ways to help you achieve a healthy smile for life. While X-rays provide valuable information, they don’t give a complete view of everything going on inside your mouth.
With an intraoral camera, we can see every aspect of your teeth and mouth with incredible detail: uncovering cracked teeth, plaque deposits, cavities next to fillings, and excessive wear. When we can discover oral problems early on, your treatment is much less invasive and much more cost-effective.
Our intraoral camera is small: about the size of the mirror we use during your regular hygiene appointments. You probably wouldn’t even notice we’re using it, except that with the intraoral camera, you have the opportunity to see everything we see on a monitor.
This is a great tool to help you become more informed about your dental health, because it gives you a clear understanding of your teeth’s condition, and allows you to make a more informed decision with regard to your treatment options.
The CariVu is a portable caries detection device that uses patented transillumination technology to support the identification of occlusal, interproximal and recurrent carious lesions and cracks. It is completely radiation free. With this device, Dr. Yeh can identify questionable areas early on and decide on a course of preventative care.
