Diagnosing Health Concerns
Tooth decay and cavities are difficult to detect even if they cause symptoms such as a pain in your mouth or tooth sensitivity. In some cases, tooth decay and cavities start from the inside of the tooth, where X-rays are the only way to form a proper diagnosis. In similar cases, a cavity that occurs on the surface of the tooth between two adjacent teeth can’t be seen without technological help. The best way to find and treat a cavity early on is with preventive dentistry such as dental X-rays.
Dr. Garrison uses bitewing X-Rays to diagnose decay between adjacent teeth and she uses a panoramic X-Ray (shown in photo), look for issues around the roots of teeth or pathology of the jaw and joint.
Are Digital and 3D
Thanks to advances in modern dentistry, the radiation exposure of modern dental X-rays has been reduced to a minimal amount, so that a common dental exam consisting of 4 bitewing X-rays produces less exposure to radiation than an ordinary day of natural background radiation (similar to that of a short 1-2 hour airplane ride). At Highland Dental, we make every effort to encourage the best level of health in our patients using only the best services and technology.
At Highland Dental Health our CEREC® CAD/CAM dental crown and dental veneer technology comes complete with 4D imaging software and an in-house milling unit to deliver highly personalized and custom dental crowns in one same-day appointment. Ceramic Reconstruction (CEREC) creates strong, long-lasting porcelain crowns that are color matched, milled and ready for placement in-office before you ever leave your first appointment.
