Digital x-rays have become the modern standard of care in dentistry. Digital radiography is quicker, safer, more comfortable, and convenient than traditional x-rays, They provide 80% less radiation than traditional x-rays, and reduces the need for additional x-rays. Digital x-rays also provide more diagnostic information to Dr. Pinhasov and her team. Cavities, bone loss, abscesses, and various other non-painful dental conditions are more clearly seen with digital x-rays, allowing you to make the best decision for your treatment. Many dental conditions do not have symptoms, and cannot be seen with the naked eye. Radiographs can be used to detect these conditions early on, allowing for more treatment choices. Dental x-rays are crucial in assessing and treating your oral health.
It’s been said that a picture speaks a thousand words. At BP dental Solutions, we use a slim camera designed for the mouth to photograph things we may notice during your dental exam. Things such as old fillings that are breaking down, tooth cracks, a broken tooth, tooth abscesses, oral lesions, tooth decay, and tooth wear are easily seen with use of the camera. This lets us show the patient exactly what we are seeing, and clearly explain our concerns or recommendations for treatment, allowing you to make the best choice for your treatments. Ask Dr. Boris to take an intra-oral tour of your mouth at your next dental exam!
Panoramic X-Ray Machine
A panoramic x-ray is a commonly performed examination by dentists and oral surgeons in everyday practice and is an important diagnostic tool. It covers a wider area than a conventional intra-oral x-ray and, as a result, provides valuable information about the nasal area, maxillary sinuses, tooth positioning and gum and bone irregularities. This examination is also used to plan treatment for full and partial dentures, braces, extractions and implants.
A panoramic x-ray can also reveal the presence of an existing issue or potential problem such as: advanced periodontal disease, oral cancer, impacted teeth and TMJ.
Dental Laser Therapy
Lasers are used to treat a variety of dental issues including gum infection, sensitive teeth and cold sores. Lasers are commonly used to kill bacteria hiding under the gums. Laser therapy is a safe, gentle, and non-invasive supplemental dental treatment Dr. Boris offers his patients for. An unsightly cold sore can form at any time. Treating it with a laser immediately at the beginning of an outbreak can significantly shorten the duration of your cold sore.
