When you visit our Dunwoody family dentist, one of the first things you’ll notice is the newer technology we incorporate into your appointment. Although advancements make it easier to provide more efficient and accurate care, they also play a crucial role in earlier diagnosis.
For situations like tooth decay and gum disease, the earlier problems are caught, the simpler and more affordable they are to correct.
For example, a digital X-ray can capture small cavities between teeth, where they touch side-by-side. These areas of decay aren’t visible during a clinical exam, meaning that our Dunwoody dentist won’t see the cavity without the X-ray until it’s spread deeper into your tooth.
Since we can catch the cavity earlier, it’s possible to repair your tooth with a small, minimally invasive white filling. Had we not incorporated the advanced screening methods, you might have found yourself needing something more comprehensive (like a full coverage dental crown).
You See What We Do
Still uncertain about what’s going on inside of your mouth? Our digital intraoral cameras capture magnified images of your tooth surfaces so that you can see things like tiny cracks, leaky fillings, or early cavities before it’s even possible to feel them with your tongue. When you have the visual information you need in front of you, you’ll feel better equipped to make what we call an “informed” decision about your care, rather than guess or rely on another person’s explanation.
