Visiting the dentist has come a long way over the past two decades. Advances in technology, equipment, and procedures have given dentists more opportunities to make our patients’ visits faster and more comfortable than ever before. Drs. Luczynski and Sarmiento invest in the latest technology so that we can offer you the best care possible.
Precision is necessary when it comes to your dental work, and we take great care to ensure that you receive the highest quality fit and finish. Drs. Luczynski and Sarmiento use high-power magnification glasses, to examine your teeth and gums, so your new dental work blends seamlessly with your smile.
Digital Imaging (X-rays)
Radiographic X-rays of your teeth and gums is necessary to completely understand your dental health inside your teeth and under the gums. We can identify any bone or tooth problems you may have. Our office uses digital X-ray imaging which is faster, lower-radiation and more detailed than traditional X-ray films. Once the images are created, they may be viewed instantly on computers, stored indefinitely, and transferred easily to specialists or insurance companies. This makes your visit shorter and simplifies the process of reviewing dental issues and plans with our team, as well as with specialists and insurance companies.
An intraoral camera is a very small camera (often just a few millimeters long) that produces instant high-resolution zoomed in images of your mouth, teeth, and gums. This offers several benefits to you. First, the images obtained by the intraoral camera may be enhanced and enlarged to get a closer look at potential problem areas that may have been missed by more traditional methods. Second, because the feedback is instant, Drs. Luczynski and Sarmiento can quickly diagnose and communicate potential problems, which means less chair time for you! And third, the images are permanently stored at our facility, creating a complete baseline history of your teeth that is printable for you, other specialists, your lab, or your insurance company.
