In dentistry, the tools used can greatly help your dentist in treating your smile more effectively! At Morrison Dental Group, we aim to provide our patients with up-to-date technology to help us efficiently treat our patients with the best possible care. Investing in state-of-the-art equipment helps us provide you with better care and better service. Our technology and machines give us the convenience of faster turnaround time, higher quality materials, more accurate information and a better overall experience for each patient we have the privilege of serving. Included in our technology are 3D CT Scans, Craniofacial Imaging and Laser Procedures.
3D CT Scans
Our 3D CT Scanning allows us to get better information by seeing more of each individual tooth, nerve pathways, soft tissues and bone. We can see all of this in a single scan! At times, standard x-rays will not provide sufficient information. When this is the case, 3D CT Scans are necessary. By receiving more information through 3D CT Scanning, we are able to better diagnose and treat our patients.
Just as 3D CT Scans provide better information, in the same way craniofacial imaging allows us to better diagnose and treat our patients. This type of imaging is used to view areas of the head and neck. This imaging can be used in orthodontics as well as general dentistry.
Laser treatments can be used on the hard tissue (teeth) and soft tissue (gums). Laser dentistry is used in many different ways including:
- Tooth decay
- Teeth whitening
- Gum disease
- Cavity detection
- Tooth preparations
- Dental fillings
- Crown lengthening
- TMJ treatment
- Nerve regeneration
We are pleased to offer technology at a level that allows us to treat our patients with high-quality care! Investing in technology is one of the ways we strive to give you and your smile the best possible care!
