Digital x-rays are the newest technology used in dentistry to take and archive dental x-rays. Digital x-rays significantly reduces the amount of radiation as compared to traditional dental x-rays. This technique captures a digital picture of teeth with their supporting bone structures and stores the images on a computer in our dental office in Oswego, IL. You and Dr. Shaikh will be able to instantly view your x-rays and enlarge the image to aid in the identification of dental problems and to guage your dental health. Dr. Shaikh will use this information to create an individualized treatment plan.
Taking pictures of the teeth and supporting tissue with a small video camera about the size of a pen is a wonderful addition to dentistry today. The intra-oral camera creates digital images that can be stored on a computer at Smile Family Dental. The images are shared with our patients so they can join with us in the "co-diagnosis" of problems with their dental health. We can show you how others view your smile and which dental fillings are broken or discolored. We look forward to showing you a dental tour of your mouth in the privacy of your treatment room.
Regardless of the clinical application, controlling the oral environment is essential for predictable outcomes. A compromised operative field negatively impacts operator efficiency and treatment results. Complete oral control allows our clinicians to maximize the efficacy of technique-sensitive dental materials in order to deliver high quality dental treatment and long-lasting restorations. Using Isolite System's family of products offers your dentist in Oswego, IL multiple options for easy-to-use and minimally invasive dental isolation for every patient, every procedure.
