Technologies at Our Dental Clinic
At Southwood Dental, the technology we use helps us develop a treatment plan 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.
We strive 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. This allows your dentist to examine parts of your mouth that are not visible to the naked eye.
Panoramic X-rays allow our dentists to create a single image of your entire mouth. This image is a flat representation of the teeth, upper and lower jaws, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and nasal and sinus structures.
