Three dental technologies available at Ridgeview Family Dental
- Posted on: Oct 15 2019
Ridgeview Family Dental believes in providing patients in the areas of Warrensburg and Oak Grove, MO with the solutions they need to achieve beautiful, healthy smiles. Not only does this mean routine dental work, but it also means integrating modern technologies into one’s dental needs. Our staff offers several dental technologies that can make diagnosis, treatment, and prevention more accurate and effective. Below are just a few of the modern dental technologies used at the practice for patients:
- DiagnoDent – one of the two most harmful conditions that can impact a smile’s health is that of cavities. These are holes that develop in the tooth enamel caused by tooth decay. Acids can develop in the mouth that can eat away at the layers of dentin and cause an infection if not addressed as soon as possible. With the DiagnoDent device, a dentist can spot areas of decay before they are even visible to the naked eye. When diagnosed early, these areas can be treated well before patients even experience problems.
- Digital dental x-rays – radiation exposure is of great concern for patients when they visit the dentist and undergo a series of traditional x-rays. Our practice is pleased to use digital x-rays, which reduce exposure to radiation by 90%. These digital images are also clearer and more accurate than conventional methods, and can be stored on our computers for fast and easy access.
- Intraoral imaging – many of our patients are visual learners, and need to see their condition before they fully understand how to treat it. At Ridgeview Family Dental, we are excited to offer intraoral imaging which is used to show patients their dental concerns, not just explain them without visual aids. These cameras are small and are utilized by the dentist to take photos or video of areas of concern within the smile.
