When you seek care at our office, you are assured that Dr. Browning and our staff utilize the latest in technology to enhance the quality of your dental care. She believes that in order to deliver the best dental care possible, it is imperative to be current with new dental technology.
Dr. Browning chooses carefully which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our eyes alone. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors of the bone, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, rather than holding up a 35mm film to the light. Digital X-rays result in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you.
Many patients, especially younger patients, are very familiar with the latest technology and are comfortable with the high tech practice. Computers and TV screens are their primary method of information processing.
Dr. Browning utilizes intraoral camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. Anintraoral camera is a very small camera – in some cases, just a few millimeters long. An intraoral camera allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order for us to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you!
Intra oral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These images can be printed for you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.
