Dental Technology

 

Ivonne Castro Family Dentistry is committed to the continued learning of our always growing and changing industry. We utilize all leading dental technology in order to provide the most extensive, detailed dental care in the Louisiana area. Our team is always completing additional training to keep up with new restorative and preventative techniques.

 

 

Intraoral Cameras

 

Photographs can be highly helpful in many cases, allowing us to better examine and diagnose dental issues that are beyond your line-of-sight. Intraoral cameras utilize miniature LED cameras that can enhance subtle details within your mouth.

 

Intraoral cameras are an excellent dental tool for obtaining images of subtle details found throughout your mouth. We utilize intraoral cameras during preventative exams to proactively find the beginning stages of oral disease or dental issues.

 

The technological advantage of being able to specific conditions in your mouth on a computer screen allows us to clarify and properly diagnose. Intraoral cameras are attached to specializes hand-held wands that can take pictures from any angle within your mouth. We’re even able to catch subtle cracks before they accelerate and lead to broken teeth.

 

Intraoral cameras produce physical proof that helps dental insurance companies reimburse you easier for treatment.

 

 

Digital X-Rays

 

Ivonne Castro Family Dentistry has state-of-the-art digital x-ray machines that incorporate digital film, advanced software, and drastically lowered radiation exposure. We’re able to safely diagnose patients through this effective technology. We are proud to utilize the Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) medical imaging technique, which consists of X-ray computer tomography where the X-rays are divergent, forming a cone.  CBCT has become increasingly important in treatment planning and diagnosis in implant dentistry, and other dental related issues.

 

Our leading digital x-ray machines utilize digital sensors to capture these images at a fraction of the traditional exposure and radiation. We always have the latest in digital x-ray machines in order to promote patient health and better diagnostic capabilities.

Digital x-rays provide a multitude of different benefits, including:

 

  • Safety: Our digital x-ray machines have a 90% reduction in radiation when compared to older film-based x-ray machines.

 

  • Time savings: These digital images are immediately captured, leading to quicker appointment and evaluation times.
