As your dentist in Waterloo at Iris Dentistry, when we find dental technology that’s backed with science and helps to give you a more comfortable and predictable dental experience, we’re all for it. After all – our goal is the same as yours – to give you the beautiful, healthy, intact, and functional smile you deserve!
Lower Exposure To Radiation
Digital x-rays are just as accurate as film x-rays, plus they’re more comfortable for you! We can even look at them together when planning your treatment! Plus, this digital technology also exposes you and your loved ones to less radiation, which is particularly important to people who have undergone cancer treatment or are concerned about radiation exposure for other reasons.
What It Helps Us See
Because we’re a full-service practice, at Iris Dentistry we need full-service x-ray technology. With selectable fields of view, we can see a variety of scans of your anatomy while you sit in comfort. Whether we’re creating a sleep apnea solution and need to see what your airway looks like, are planning your wisdom teeth removal, or are creating guides for your dental implant treatment, this machine helps us create a predictable plan that you can count on. It can even show us your sinus area and help us see if your jaw joint is functioning as it should.
And of course, all x-rays show things that are not visible in a visual examination alone, such as: the condition of fillings, crowns and bridges, hidden tooth decay, abscesses, bone loss due to gum disease, and the presence of impacted or extra teeth. This technology is one of the most useful pieces of equipment we’ve invested in to continue giving you the best care available.
The Best Part?
A clear picture makes for a sure dental strategy and a safer and more comfortable way to make a proper diagnosis and a healthier mouth for you!
To learn more about this amazing technology or to book a consultation, just give us a call! We’d love to welcome you to the Iris Dentistry dental family and show you how easy a visit to your dentist in Waterloo can be!
Yours in excellent dental health,
Dr. Iris Moreira, general dentist in Waterloo
