Dental Magnification Loupes
Dentists must work in very small spaces, and they have to be accurate to a fraction of a millimeter – fortunately, the latest dental technology can help. We use the same special prismatic magnification glasses, known as "loupes," as surgeons, which help them practice the extreme attention to detail and exacting precision needed to best serve patients during complex procedures. A complete exam will be done under magnification to tell us the condition of your teeth, gums, and underlying bone. We utilizes the most advanced techniques and technology, so every patient can look and feel confident.
At Bright smiles Dental, we are proud to say that we are a completely paperless office! Our computerized records system not only reduces waste and helps the environment, but it also allows our staff to run more efficiently and keep a more accurate track of your services.
Panoramic X-rays do what the name suggests. They wrap-around photographs of your face and teeth, offering a otherwise invisible view. X-rays in general, bring to light hidden structures, such as wisdom teeth, reveal preliminary signs of cavities and also illuminate fractures and bone loss.
Panoramic X-rays are easy and simple to perform. Typically, dental X-rays involve film being placed inside your mouth, but panoramic film is hidden inside a mechanism that rotates around the outside of your head.Panoramic X-rays are generally taken on an as-needed basis, unlike bitewing X-rays that require re-takes every few years. A panoramic x-ray is used to provide a better view of the sinus areas nasal areas and mandibular nerve. Panoramic X-rays are preferable to bitewing X-rays when you're in extreme pain, and when a sinus problem is suspected to have caused dental problems.
