At Arrow Dental, we offer a caring, personalized approach to your dental care. When you are anxious, there is nothing quite as soothing as a friendly smile or a kind word!
However, we also appreciate the role that technology plays in making your treatments faster, more comfortable, and more productive. If you haven’t been to a dental office in a while, we think you will be pleasantly surprised by all the ways technology can improve your experience with us!
Please take a moment to browse through some of the state-of-the-art technology we currently offer. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us!
Dental x-rays have always been an important diagnostic tool. But with the introduction of digital imaging, diagnosing dental conditions has never been safer, easier, or more accurate.
State-of-the-art digital x-rays produce highly detailed images that allow us to see minute detail we would not be able to see with traditional x-ray film. Using this technology, we can display and manipulate an image, making it larger or smaller or rotating it so you get a clear view of the problem. Because the images are high resolution, we can identify and treat conditions in their earliest stages, long before they cause any discomfort.
Another thing that makes digital x-rays so easy and comfortable is that we don’t have to use bulky x-ray film. Instead, we use a flat digital sensor that is connected to specialized computer software. We position the sensor comfortably in your mouth, and moments after we take the x-ray, we project the image onto your chairside monitor where we can view it together.
Patients especially appreciate digital x-rays because they produce far less radiation than film x-rays; some estimates say as much as 80 percent less. Digital images require no film to process, so there are no hazardous chemicals to dispose of, making them safer for the environment. And since your x-rays are stored electronically on our secure system, we can quickly send them to your insurance company or specialists as needed.
Have you ever had a dental exam and wondered what it is your dentist is seeing?
Intraoral cameras are an important new technology that allows us to share what we see with you. This tiny specialized instrument is small (about the size of a pen) and the process is comfortable and easy. While you sit back in the dental chair, Dr. Jamie Marquez guides the camera over your teeth, and the resulting image is displayed in real time on your chairside monitor.
Your oral health is very personal, and for you to be part of your treatment, you need to be informed. The intraoral camera gives Dr. Marquez a detailed view of your teeth that she can share with you to highlight problems and explain why treatment is necessary. Having firsthand knowledge of existing conditions allows you to take control of your dental care by making confident decisions that benefit your oral health.
