One of the most essential technologies we utilize is the CT/conebeam scanner. This digital x-ray system allows us to view high-definition, panoramic images of the patients’ supportive bone and tissue. Traditional digital x-rays give us a series of images that we can piece together fairly well, but this is not as accurate as the full smile images we receive from our CT/conebeam scanner. These digital images give us a clear picture of how teeth fit together, helps us determine whether patients have adequate jawbone density, and provide a number of other essential data points we use to plan even the most advanced treatments from the comfort of our practice. This technology is located in our Lititz location and is utilized as part of the planning process for dental implant placements, tooth extractions, and more. These advanced scans give us the ability to more safely and precisely plan every aspect of patients’ treatment ensuring their comfort and leading to successful, long lasting results.
Impressions were traditionally captured by having patients bite down on a putty-like substance that captured the grooves and contours of their smiles. We use a digital impressions system in our Lititz location that allows us to capture precise, accurate representations of patients’ smiles without the need for patients to bite into the messy putty material. In addition to providing more accurate results, digital impressions also significantly decrease treatment time as these images are immediately available at the dental lab where work can begin right away.
