Over the past decade, the use of digital X-rays has become commonplace in the field of dentistry. This system of imaging is distinctly different from traditional X-rays, as it decreases exposure to radiation and uses state-of-the-art computer software to provide the most accurate picture of the mouth and its underlying components.
Similar to digital X-rays, digital photography makes it easier than ever before to capture a highly detailed image of the mouth. With close-up photographs to highlight any issues, patients can get a better idea of the treatment Dr. Harrell is prescribing and understand exactly how it will contribute to their oral health.
Thanks to recent technological developments, it is now possible to identify cavities with a sophisticated laser that painlessly analyzes tooth material. If a cavity is detected in its early stages, patients can be treated with smaller fillings and the pain that presents itself once cavities are fully developed can be avoided.
Dental exams are one of the most important aspects of general dentistry at Adult Dentistry of Ballantyne. Dr. Harrell’s comprehensive exam includes checking each tooth for damage, analyzing periodontal health, TMJ analysis, an oral cancer screening and a full complement of digital photographs and X-rays.
Gum disease is prevalent among many patients and requires immediate attention to prevent further deterioration of oral health. If your gums are red, swollen or bleed easily, Dr. Harrell can diagnose your periodontal issues and provide immediate treatment to correct any problems. Periodontal health is essential to the strength and functioning of your teeth.
