Advanced Technology for Advanced Dentistry
Dentists have relied on X-rays for over a century to help plan the course of their patients’ treatment. Today, we use digital radiography instead of photography-based imaging, which emits up to 90% less radiation and produces significantly clearer images in nearly an instant.
An intraoral camera is a small, digital camera at the end of a small wand. Dr. Hansen can use the wand to carefully manipulate the camera to see areas inside of your mouth that are otherwise difficult to see, making your visit quicker and your diagnosis more accurate.
Scaling is the process of debriding teeth of plaque and tartar, which harbor harmful oral bacteria that lead to cavities and gingivitis. Using ultrasonic equipment, Dr. Hansen can perform ultrasonic scaling for quicker, more comfortable, and more successful dental and periodontal cleanings.
Oral Cancer Screenings
During every routine dental exam, Dr. Hansen will perform a comprehensive oral cancer screening. Sometimes hard-to-notice symptoms, like lesions, sores, and ulcers, can warn of oral cancer and the need for treatment. Your regular screenings will help you catch these warnings and seek treatment as soon as possible, if necessary.
Computerized tomography (CT) scans combine several X-rays from various angles to create 3D images of your teeth, teeth roots, and jawbone. CT scans help Dr. Hansen precisely diagnose complex oral health issues, or plan complex restorative and reconstructive services, including dental implant placement.
