At your next dental appointment, our near Jacksonville, FL, dentists might apply one (or all) of the following tools to revamp your dentist appointment:

3D Cone Beam CT Scan

Because facial bones aren’t visible to the naked eye, it can be challenging to visualize what a person’s facial bones look like beneath the surface. So, our dentists use 3D cone beam CT Scans to dependably capture images of the mouth, nasal, throat, and jaw areas.

The 3D cone beam CT scan software combines digital x-rays and computerized tomography to capture 3D images of the structure of the jaws, bone shape, soft tissues, and teeth and creates a single image in about 20 minutes. Furthermore, 3D cone beam CT scans are pain-free and allow our dentists to see each tooth’s depth, height, and width for planning and performing dental implant placement.

iTero® Intraoral Scanner

Whether you need Invisalign® clear aligner therapy, a dental crown, or a new set of dentures, the iTero intraoral scanner creates highly realistic, colorized images of your smile to streamline workflow for the dental team, speed up processes, and help patients envision what the potential of their smile.

The iTero intraoral scanner projects complex, high-definition images of the exterior of teeth better than rudimentary hand-held mirrors. This system capitalizes on taking real-time images of hard-to-reach areas and angles by highlighting areas with high-powered light and zoom lenses.

Digital Radiography

Also known as digital x-rays, digital radiography is the type of x-ray imaging that uses x-ray sensors to produce enhanced digital images of teeth, jaws, and facial bones. Digital radiographs help our dentists accurately examine, diagnose, and treat dental issues like cavities.
