By utilizing the most advanced technology available, Lakewood Dental Center can ensure that each patient achieves optimal results. Some of the state of the art technology we have implemented in our office includes digital x-rays, intra-oral digital photograpy, and Identafi oral cancer screening.
Digital radiography (digital x-ray) is the latest technology used to take dental x-rays. This technique uses an electronic sensor (instead of x-ray film) that captures and stores the digital image on a computer. This image can be instantly viewed and enlarged helping the dentist detect problems easier. Digital x-rays reduce radiation 80-90% compared to the already low exposure of traditional dental x-rays.
The intra-oral camera broadcasts images for both the patient and doctor to see. Instantaneously the images of your teeth are sent to a computer screen so that both the patient and doctor can review your oral health together. This wonderful new technology allows you to relax in your chair while simultaneously observing the inside of your mouth magnified beyond normal size on an adjacent computer monitor. In our modern office, you can see what we see with our intra oral cameras and digital xray images, on flat screen monitors.
Identafi® Oral Cancer Screening
Identafi® with its Identafi® technology allows those on the front line of detection to do just that - identify biochemical and morphological changes in cells of the mouth, throat, tongue and tonsils. These changes are made visible through the use of Identafi®’s unique three-wavelength technology, which
illuminates possible areas of change that may signal the occurrence or early beginnings of oral cancer.
