Your enjoyable dental experience depends on your comfort and safety. Dr. Adachi and his team utilize the latest technological advances in dental equipment and techniques in order to ensure your satisfaction with your visit and your continued excellent health.
DIGITAL RADIOGRAPHS (X-RAYS)
Digital radiographs are a technological advancement that results in less exposure to radiation for our patients and an almost instantaneous picture for our dental team. Unlike traditional, film-based X-rays, digital X-rays often show more detail and can be archived in our computer system for future reference and comparison. You will appreciate a more comfortable visit with less waiting and quicker treatment.
An intraoral camera lets you see inside your mouth during both treatment planning and dental procedures. Our intraoral camera displays your teeth on a video screen, allowing Dr. Adachi to walk you through your proposed treatment. The use of this camera allows us to work with you as a team to meet your dental care goals. We are happy to answer any questions you may have and to discuss your treatment options with you. We want you to picture how your appearance will improve with dental care, giving you all the more reason to smile. Our new intraoral camera can also show us areas of decay using fluorescence. Sometimes even more effective than X-rays, this feature allows us to catch cavities sooner.
Digital photography gives Dr. Adachi instant images to use for cosmetic imaging or to keep on file to track your progress. Digital images can be saved electronically and are more efficient than traditional photographs, which show less detail and which must be taken off-site for development.
