When you seek care at our office, rest assured that Dr. Saltz and her staff utilize the latest in technology to enhance the quality and fit for your dental care.
Many dentists use air-driven “hand-pieces,” as well as Dr. Saltz, for the most precise aspects of restorative procedures. This results in extraordinarily precise interfaces between your tooth and your new restoration (crown, veneer, or filling). This will bring more comfort to you as well. With a more precise tool, there is less vibration and less noise.
Dr. Saltz carefully selects which radiographs are taken and there are many guidelines that we follow to ensure our patient safety. Radiographs allow us to see things that are not visible to the naked eye. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can even examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are crucial aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs.
Digital X-rays results in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you.
Dr. Saltz utilizes intraoral camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An intraoral 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.
