Providing Dental Care with 21st Century Technologies

In today’s day and age, newer technologies and equipment make dental care more comfortable and less daunting. This is a welcome relief for patients who might fear the dentist’s office because of the belief that older, more traditional methods are used. Instead, at Waterford Dental Group, we incorporate the use of digital X-rays, intraoral cameras, cone beam imaging, digital impressions, and even a cavity detection system. If you’re interested in learning more about all of these innovative dental technologies here in Dublin, review the following information and give us a call.


Intraoral Cameras

As small, handheld, camera-tipped devices, intraoral cameras allow our team to view your teeth and gums up close while projecting the images onto a chairside monitor. This allows you to easily see the same thing we see in real time. There is no more guessing or struggling to see what it is that might be a problem. Instead, you can visualize areas of your mouth that need proper care.

All-Digital Dental X-Rays

The digital X-rays used today emit far less radiation than more traditional versions, making them a safer option for children and adults. And because they are developed in just seconds instead of hours, our team can formulate treatment plans more efficiently, and the higher-resolution images allow for more accurate recommendations and precise results.

3D Cone Beam Imaging

The placement of dental implants as well as the process of performing a root canal are both reasons that we will use our 3D Cone Beam Imaging system. Designed to provide our doctors with a clearer, more in-depth view of the teeth, gums, jawbone, oral pathways, nerves, blood vessels, and other facial structures, we can take the 200+ images captured by the 360-degree rotating arm and develop a treatment plan based on the three-dimensional model of your mouth, head, and neck.

Digital Dental Impressions

Creating customized restorations doesn’t have to be a difficult task for lab technicians. Although cold dental putty was once the only way to capture a patient’s teeth and gums, we now use digital impressions to not only create a more enjoyable approach for patients but also produce more accurate and precise restorations. This ensures that your new teeth will fit comfortably and correctly once in place.

Cavity Detection System

Pinpointing dental decay early on is important if you want to avoid more invasive restorative procedures like dental fillings or crowns. The only way to do this is by visiting your dentist every six months. But now that a cavity detection system is used, we can identify hints of bad oral bacteria and decay, making it easier to administer treatment before it has a chance to spread further and cause more serious damage.
