Digital x-rays help in the diagnosis and treatment of many dental procedures. They illustrate bone height, bone defects, infection, root involvement, tartar, tooth decay and more. Digital x-rays are also beneficial in determining if gum disease is progressing or if arrested.
Dr. Ceja realizes the benefits for our patients when utilizing our digital x-ray system. A digital x-ray allows for quick on screen reference to facilitate your understanding of any areas of concern. As well, digital x-rays allow for minimal exposure time with 80% less radiation than normal x-rays.
Digital x-rays are scanned into our computer, allowing for the images of your teeth, supporting bone and gums to be large and crisp, stored in your file for future reference. Digital x-rays are faster, safer and environmentally friendly.
Please feel free to speak to Dr. Ceja or one of our dental team members on how this amazing technology allows us to bring patient care to a higher, safer and improved level.
What if you could see what we see?
Dr. Ceja utilizes an Intra-Oral Camera and Video System to allow you to be able to see what they see.
The more you know about your mouth, the more able you are to make good choices for your dental care. Dr. Ceja utilizes this advanced technology to assist patients who want to be an active participant in their own dental care. Ask Dr. Ceja or one of our team members for a complete tour of your mouth. Then, we'll immediately print a photograph of any area(s) you would like. A picture is worth a thousand words.
If you have any questions about Intra-oral photography, please feel free to speak with Dr. Ceja or one of our dental team members today!
Dr. Ceja and his team are now using a system called Dexis CariVu™, a brilliant new approach in early cavity detection. This advanced system allows Dr. Ceja and his team to detect cavities earlier, thus allowing for less of your natural tooth structure from being destroyed. The system identifies lesions, cracks and cavities that to the eye in some cases cannot be seen.
By hugging the tooth and bathing it in safe, near-infrared light, Dexis CariVu's™ transillumination technology makes the enamel appear transparent while porous lesions trap and absorb the light. This unique cavity detector allows Dr. Ceja to see through the tooth exposing its structure and the actual structure of any cavities or problems with very high accuracy. When used together with an x-ray and an intra-oral photo, the cavity detection system provides a comprehensive picture of the health of your tooth.
If you are hesitant to have X-rays taken, Dexis CariVu™ is a great alternative diagnostic method.
If you have any questions about the Dexis CariVu™ early cavity detection system, please speak with one of our team members today.
