Guiding Treatment Planning
At W Dental, the technology we use helps to inform treatment planning and make your dental appointments run smoothly. Because we can display digital X-rays and scans on the monitors in our treatment rooms, we can show you any issues in your mouth and walk you through your treatment plan.
With the help of dental technology, we can diagnose and treat dental problems at an early stage, preventing them from becoming more serious. This not only saves patients time and money but also ensures that they maintain good oral health for years to come.
Our goal is to provide patients with dental care while making sure they are fully informed about their oral health. Dental technology helps us do that.
Digital X-rays use digital sensors instead of traditional photographic X-ray film. They produce highly detailed computer images of the teeth and gums, as well as other oral structures and conditions, allowing your dentist to examine parts of the mouth that are not visible to the naked eye.
Panoramic X-rays let your dentist to create a single image of your entire mouth. This image is a flat representation of the teeth, upper and lower jaws, temporomandibular joints, and nasal and sinus structures. Panoramic X-rays are often used to help plan for dentures, braces, extractions and implants.
iTero 3D Scanner
The iTero® Intraoral Scanner offers digital dental impressions as an alternative to traditional messy impressions. Within minutes, your dentist will take a digital image of your teeth allowing them to create digital replicas of your mouth. These scans are often used to create our custom Invisalign clear aligners.
