The Use of Technology
Dr. Benedon delivers state of the art Periodontal therapy and Dental Implants using cutting edge technology.
Digital x-rays provide images in seconds while minimizing radiation exposure to a fraction of what was necessary with conventional films. This is accomplished with the use of a small sensor connected to a computer. The x-rays can be enhanced to improve diagnostic images and printed or e-mailed to other dentists or insurance companies.
iTero® IntraOral Scanner
We are pleased to have introduced another state of the art technology into our practice in December 2019, the iTero® IntraOral Scanner. Having used this technology for the past year has changed the way we do dentistry.
A compact, handheld wand (camera) is used to digitally map the structure of your teeth and gums using optical technology. Taking 6000 images per second, in just minutes, we have an accurate picture of your oral anatomy.
With the iTero® IntraOral Scanner, we can produce digital impressions with instant 3D imaging – no goopy impression material required. Impressions with the iTero® IntraOral Scanner aren’t just more comfortable, they are also more accurate, giving our patients better results every day.
This is truly 21st century technology and you will marvel at the enhanced comfort and treatment outcomes. Call us to find out more about the iTero® IntraOral Scanner today!
Extraoral Digital Camera
Extraoral Digital Cameras are used to photograph existing conditions to allow greater information transfer between Dr. Benedon and his referring dentists.
