Our Cutting-Edge Technology
Digital x-rays are an important component of your dental visits. They show our Sterling Heights dental team areas of concern that aren’t visible to the naked eye. These x-rays improve the process by being faster, safer, and more comfortable than traditional x-rays.
Our digital x-ray images are available immediately because they don’t have to be processed. That means we can detect any dental issues you may be experiencing quicker and develop a customized treatment plan before they become severe.
Best of all, digital x-rays reduce the amount of radiation you’re exposed to by up to 90%. This means that you can rest easy during dental visits, knowing that your health is protected.
Some parts of your mouth are difficult to see, even with x-ray images. That’s why we utilize intraoral cameras, so we can examine every area of your mouth in detail. This small device looks similar to a pen, but it’s equipped with a camera so we can obtain high-quality images of your oral cavity.
These images are transmitted to a monitor so patients are able to see alongside Dr. Hindi, ensuring you’re involved in your dental treatment. By following along, you’ll be able to better understand your teeth and how to properly take care of them.
Smile Preview Software
With the use of our smile preview software, our team can design a virtual model of a patient’s new smile if they’re undergoing any restorative procedures or cosmetic enhancements. This software helps us map out patient’s treatments and ensure that they’re happy with the projected results before we even begin treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
We recommend getting dental x-rays at least once every year. Unless we need to take x-rays for a specific diagnosis or procedure, we limit most patients to x-rays at every other six-month dental visit. This helps keep your exposure to radiation safe while providing us with images of your teeth to keep track of any potential causes for concern.
Intraoral cameras are used for looking closely at areas of the mouth that are difficult to see in high detail. Dr. Hindi can examine your teeth visually, but the intraoral camera can assist us in detecting areas of concern with more certainty. The images from the camera can also be shown to you on a small monitor, ensuring you’re a part of your dental treatment and give you a better understanding of your dental issue.
Our advanced technology provides both our team and our patients with a number of benefits, including:
- Accurate and effective treatment plans
- Stronger, more durable results
- Faster recovery times
- Natural-looking restorations
