Advanced education is a requirement among our Team in order to provide you with the latest information and technological advancements.
Technology allows us to make use of this knowledge to provide you with a “full-picture” ~ in order to help you make your dental decisions knowing all the details at the beginning.
Intraoral Cameras are used when performing the majority of our oral exams. Essentially, you are able to see what we see. Your teeth are magnified on-screen, allowing you to fully understand your diagnosis. This form of information is also useful when communicating with a specialist, or an insurance company.
For the wellness of our patients & staff, we adhere to a strict sterilization system. As recommended by the Centres for Disease Control and the American Dental Association, we have taken this action to help prevent cross-contamination, and promote infection protection, as well as peace of mind for our patients and staff.
Digital X-Rays – At West 17th Avenue Dental we are pleased to use digital x-rays in our practice which offer at least an 80% reduction in radiation compared to conventional x-rays. We use x-rays to expose hidden tooth decay, reveal abcesses, cysts, tumors, impacted teeth and extra teeth. We also offer 360 digital pans which help us image your entire head. These scans are non-invasive, painless, an eliminate the need for messy impressions.
As quoted from one of our many satisfied patients:
“…the atmosphere is new and genuine, and more enjoyable than I have experienced before…your professionalism and dentistry is top-notch! “
