Digital Dental X-Rays
There is a lot of valuable information about your oral health that’s well-hidden beneath the teeth and gums. That’s why X-rays are such an essential tool in the diagnostic process, and Dr. Taxin has chosen to invest in digital radiography for the safest and most comprehensive results possible. Unlike traditional film, these X-rays don’t require any darkrooms, hazardous chemicals, or excessive radiation exposure. The high-resolution images are available instantly for viewing after capture, and they can be altered through magnification and color-coding as well for valuable patient education.
With the help of an intraoral camera, it’s easier than ever to give patients an up-close-and-personal tour of their own smile. The images this technology captures will be transferred to a monitor in the operatory, which means that Dr. Taxin and the rest of our team can refer to them when discussing any concerning findings, potential treatment recommendations, and even oral hygiene tips. We strive to help you become a fully informed partner in the dental care process instead of being simply along for the ride.
CT Cone Beam Scanner
Digital X-rays are highly useful in the dentist’s office, but their two-dimensional nature does have limitations. When planning advanced procedures like surgical dental implant placement or root canal therapy, precision to the highest degree is Dr. Taxin’s top priority. That’s why he regularly utilizes a state-of-the-art CT Cone Beam Scanner, which captures hundreds of panoramic, 3D images of the patient’s teeth, gum tissue, jawbone, nerve pathways, and much more. By understanding even the smallest details of your unique oral structures, we can proceed with treatment confidently.
Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry
Laser dentistry has transformed the nature of many common dental procedures for the better, and Dr. Taxin is proud to feature this technology prominently in his practice. Our soft tissue laser can eradicate periodontal disease, aesthetically recontour the gum line, and provide other like-minded care with premier precision and exceptional comfort. In fact, many patients are so at ease throughout their procedure that they don’t even require local anesthesia.
