In recent years, advancements in dental technology have revolutionized the field of dentistry, significantly enhancing diagnostic capabilities, treatment precision, patient comfort and overall outcomes. Innovations such as Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) imaging, the TRIOS scanner, soproCARE intraoral scanner, and DIAGNOdent have played pivotal roles in improving dental treatments, transforming the patient experience and raising the standard of care. At Ora Dentistry, we have invested in the latest technology to give our patients the best dental experience possible at our dental center in Elk Grove, CA.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) Imaging
CBCT imaging represents a breakthrough in dental diagnostics, providing three-dimensional, high-resolution images of oral structures with significantly less radiation exposure than traditional CT scans. This technology enables dentists to visualize detailed images of teeth, bone, nerves and soft tissues, facilitating accurate treatment planning for procedures such as dental implants, root canals, orthodontics and oral surgeries. CBCT imaging offers precise measurements, enhanced visualization of anatomical structures and improved guidance for implant placement, ensuring more predictable and successful outcomes.
The TRIOS intraoral scanner is a cutting-edge digital impression system that replaces conventional, messy, uncomfortable dental impressions with a fast, accurate and comfortable digital scanning process. This handheld device captures highly detailed 3D images of the patient’s teeth and oral tissues, creating digital models that aid in fabricating restorations like crowns, bridges and aligners. The elimination of physical impressions streamlines the workflow, enhances accuracy and improves the overall patient experience by reducing discomfort and saving time.
soproCARE Intraoral Scanner
The soproCARE intraoral scanner combines advanced imaging technology with fluorescence technology to detect and diagnose early dental caries, plaque accumulation and gingival inflammation. This device uses fluorescence to visualize areas of concern that might not be visible to the naked eye, allowing our dentists to intervene at the earliest stages of dental decay or periodontal disease. Early detection empowers proactive preventive measures, enabling dentists to address dental issues promptly and conserve more tooth structure.
DIAGNOdent is a non-invasive laser technology designed to detect early-stage cavities that may be hidden in the enamel of the teeth. This device emits a laser light into the tooth structure, measuring the fluorescence within the tooth to identify areas of decay. DIAGNOdent aids our dentists in detecting cavities in their initial stages, often before they are visible on X-rays or clinical examinations. Early detection allows for conservative treatments, preserving more natural tooth structure and preventing the progression of decay.
At Ora Dentistry, advanced dental technologies like CBCT imaging, TRIOS scanner, soproCARE intraoral scanner and DIAGNOdent have transformed our dental diagnostics, treatment planning and patient care. These innovations have revolutionized how our dentists approach diagnosis, treatment and preventive measures, leading to more precise, efficient and patient-friendly dental procedures. As technology continues to evolve, these advancements will further elevate dental care standards, benefiting both dental professionals and patients alike.
