When you seek care at our office, please be assured that Dr. Saleh and her team utilize the latest in technology to enhance the quality of your dental care.
In our practice we use high power magnification loupes to enhance the precision of patient care.
Dentistry is micro-surgery. Using high power magnification 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.
In addition to allowing precise, close-up work, the magnification loupes direct a beam of light directly on the teeth, minimizing glare for you.
Dr. Saleh utilizes digital x-rays in the office. With digital x-rays, exposure time is approximately 60% less when compared to traditional x-rays. Digital x-rays offer more precision since we can view the image on a computer monitor instead of holding up a 35mm film to the light. They also allow us to be earth friendly and not use harmful chemicals used in procuring traditional x-rays.
Why are X-Rays Necessary?
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Dr. Saleh chooses carefully which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that are followed. X-rays allow us to see everything we cannot see with our eyes. X-rays allow 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 the teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
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.
Dr. Saleh utilizes 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 Dr. Saleh to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums. With clear, defined and enlarged images, we are able to see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you!
Intraoral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatment. These images can be printed for you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.
