Advanced Dental Technology – Whiting, IN

Greater Patient Satisfaction with Improved Innovation

Digital dental scanning technology in Whiting

Traditional methods and equipment are still used by many dentists throughout the country. However, at United Dental Centers of Whiting, we believe it is most beneficial for our patients to undergo treatment with some of the best, most advanced dental technologies in Whiting available. This is why you’ll find intraoral cameras and digital X-rays as part of our offerings. To learn more about these devices, review the information below and contact our dental office with any questions.

Intraoral Camera

Designed with a camera-tipped scanner, intraoral cameras make it easy for patients to see what is happening inside their mouths in real-time. In a matter of seconds, a dentist in Whiting can scan the teeth and gums, causing the images to be projected onto a chairside monitor. Not only does it allow for greater patient education, but it also helps to better explain problem areas and the reasons for treatment.

Digital Dental X-Rays

Digital dental X-rays are now a more convenient and comfortable way to see what is underneath the gumline. Before, traditional radiographs produced lackluster images and emitted harmful levels of radiation. Now, however, they are safer to use, emit far less radiation, and produce high-resolution images so that our team can easily see areas inside the mouth and better prepare treatment plans.

3D Cone Beam Scanner

While a dental X-ray is excellent for getting a closer look at a few teeth, when we need to see the big picture, that’s when we use our 3D cone beam scanner. It’s able to create a detailed 3D map of your dental anatomy, including both rows of teeth, your jaws, and much more. It can help us establish a baseline for your oral health at your first appointment, evaluate the strength of your bone before placing dental implants, and personalize a wide variety of procedures so that they are as comfortable as they are successful.
