Technology at Arthur Dental
At Arthur Dental, the technology we use helps to inform treatment planning and make your dental appointments more efficient. Because we can display digital x-rays and scans on the monitors in our treatment rooms, we can show you any issues in your mouth during your appointment and walk you through your treatment plan.
Our goal is to provide patients with efficient dental care, and to have our patients make fully informed decisions about their dental health. Dental technology helps us achieve this goal.
Rather than traditional photographic x-ray film, digital x-rays use digital sensors. Digital x-rays produce highly detailed computer images of the teeth and gums, as well as other oral structures and conditions, allowing your dentist to examine parts of your mouth that are not visible to the naked eye.
Panoramic x-rays allow your dentist to create a single image of your whole mouth. This image is a flat representation of the teeth, upper and lower jaws, and the nasal and sinus structures. Panoramic x-rays are often used to help plan treatments like dentures, braces and extractions.
iTero 3D Scanner
The iTero® intraoral scanner captures highly accurate, 3D impressions of your bite. This allows us to plan your dental treatment in real time, store data digitally, and create Invisalign clear aligners.
