Intraoral Scanner

3D Modeling of Teeth

An intraoral dental scanner is a digital device that is used to create 3D images of the inside of the mouth. Our scanner is typically hand-held and is used to take detailed, high-resolution images of the teeth, gums, and other structures within the mouth. Our scanner uses light-based technology to capture detailed images of the structures within the mouth. These images are used to create 3D impression models of the mouth that can be used to fabricate dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges, and dentures.

Our intraoral scanners are highly accurate, less messy and far more comfortable for patients than traditional impression methods, which involve the use of a large tray to be placed in the mouth. Overall, intraoral dental scanners are a useful tool for dental professionals, providing a quick and accurate way to create digital impressions of the mouth and to diagnose and plan treatment for dental problems.

Intra-Oral Cameras

Intra-Oral Cameras

You see what the dentist sees!

An intraoral dental camera is a small, hand-held device that is used by our dentist to capture detailed pictures of your mouth. The use of intraoral cameras allows patients to see the inside of their mouth in great detail. This real-time visual representation helps patients better understand their dental condition, as they can clearly see any dental issues, such as cavities, gum disease, or cracked teeth.

Intraoral cameras can help detect cavities that would be difficult to diagnose with the naked eye. With the ability to identify early signs of decay, gum disease, or other oral health concerns, our dentists can provide conservative treatments that preserve more of the healthy tooth structure in the long run. For example, if a small cavity is detected early using an intraoral camera, it can be treated with a minimally invasive dental filling and it will prevent further decay that may result in more extensive procedures like root canal treatment or dental crowns.

Digital X-rays

Modern Digital X-rays

Less radiation

Digital X-rays offer dental practitioners unparalleled clarity and precision when diagnosing oral health issues. The images captured are of exceptional quality, allowing dentists to detect even the tiniest cavities, bone abnormalities, and other dental concerns. With enhanced visibility, dentists can formulate precise treatment plans, leading to more effective and efficient procedures.

Gone are the days of traditional X-rays that required higher levels of radiation to obtain usable images. Digital X-rays today have been protective equipment that reduces the radiation exposure time and scattering. Our AI-enhanced X-ray imaging software can allow high quality images to be generated at reduced levels of radiation. As a result of these advances in X-ray imaging, our patients can rest assured that their overall health and safety are at the forefront of every dental visit and they are getting the least amount of radiation exposure.

Choosing a dental practice that invests in such state-of-the-art technologies demonstrates a commitment to patient well-being and a dedication to providing the highest standard of care. So, the next time you step into our Pleasanton dental office, rest assured that you are in safe hands, as we continue to harness the power of technology to safeguard your smile and overall health.
