When you seek care at our office, you are assured that Drs. Roller and Johnson and staff utilize the latest in technology to enhance the quality and fit for your dental care.
Our practice uses microscopic loupes to enhance the precision of patient care.
Dentistry is micro-surgery. Using microscopic loupes enables us to create dental restorations with incredibly precise fit and finish. You just can’t fulfill that level of care with the naked eye.
Drs. Roller and Johnson choose carefully which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Drs. Roller and Johnson utilize Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities better.
Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light. Digital X-rays results in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you.
No -drill Dentistry
For patients who do not look forward to needles, drilling, or numbness, dentistry with air abrasion may be the right choice.
Air abrasion dentistry is one of dentistry’s latest advances. We can use air abrasion dentistry to remove the decay if the location of the decay is accessible. One of the best benefits of utilizing air abrasion is that no local anesthesia is required. Unlike with the dental drill, there is no heat or vibration, making the procedure quite comfortable for most patients.
Many patients, especially younger patients, are very familiar with the latest technology and are comfortable with the high tech practice. Computers and TV screens are their primary method of information processing.
Drs. Roller and Johnson utilize intraoral camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An intraoral camera is a very small camera – in some cases, just a few millimeters long. An intraoral camera allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order for us to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you!
Intra oral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These images can be printed for you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.
