Our digital X-rays offer superior quality with considerably less radiation than standard x-rays. Our HD Panoramic system eliminates discomfort, and time consumption. Veraview IC5 HD offers high speed, brilliant clarity, and low radiation dosages. The new 10 second panoramic scan captures a higher resolution image with a 25% reduction in pixel size at just 1/6* effective dose. Additionally, it features a 5.5 second panoramic to allow for quick examinations.
Digital Direct Auto Exposure (DDAE), and Auto Image Enhancer (AIE) fine tune the imaging process for the best possible quality. DDAE automatically sets kV and mA (power) and provides continuous, real-time adjustment of the parameters throughout the pass to compensate for varying densities. AIE, a software function, regulates the brightness level of detailed areas in the scan. These programs perform a logarithmic conversion to produce images of exceptional clarity, and detail.
If we do need to take closer x-rays, we use the Shick Elite sensor. This sensor provides exceptional quality, allowing more precise treatment planing. As well this sensor emits no more radiation than as much as you would get getting into a vehicle.
Our Digital Sensor X-ray Unit: Our Schick CDR Elite digital sensor is second to none. It allows for comfort, and superior imaging to ensure the most accurate X-rays possible to date. Having accurate radio-graphs allows Dr. Rae to make the best possible assessment of a tooth's needs. This makes for less surprises or changes during treatment.
Evidence Based Treatment Planning:
Advanced imaging, such as digital x-rays, and intra-oral photos, combined with adjustable monitor arms visible to the patient, make for a more clear diagnosis. This also allows for clear visualization of any issues present. Dr. Rae feels that the people of DeLand, and the surrounding areas must be well informed before proceeding with any treatment. Our dental software organizes a patients entire file, making information attainment more efficient. In addition, chair-side video monitors make viewing of X-rays easily. This allows for a clear understanding of why a treatment is needed.
We use a powerful local anesthetic, which allows for less volume and increased effect. In addition, a small needle is used with a warmer for the actual liquid to reach consistency with body temperature.
All modern equipment allows for implementation of the newest techniques, which typically reduce visit time, and even reduce the quantity of visits.
Our laser, by AMD Lasers, makes detection of margins and bleeding control very easy, and also kills any unwanted bacteria.
