At Parkway Family Dental, we use the latest technology to ensure quality dental care and comfort.
Dentistry is micro-surgery, so we use a high-power microscope for close-up work, similar to those used by ophthalmologists. The microscope directs a beam of light directly on the teeth, minimizing glare for you and enabling us to create dental restorations with incredibly precise fit and finish. You just can’t fulfill that level of care with the naked eye.
Electric hand-pieces (drills)
Many dentists use air-driven hand-pieces. While acceptable for many procedures, air-powered hand-pieces make a “whiney” sound and do not rotate perfectly smoothly.
We use electric hand-pieces for extraordinarily precise interfaces between your tooth and your new restoration (crown, veneer, or filling) and more comfort for you — there is less vibration and less noise.
Drs. Wonder and Price utilize Digital Imaging Technologies. Exposure time is about 50 percent less than with traditional radiographs, and they result in 1/6 the exposure to radiation. Digital X-rays are more precise; we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding a 35mm film up to the light.
Dental imaging is invaluable in dental care. They help us: identify cavities between the teeth;determine bone level and health; examine roots and nerves; diagnose cysts or tumors; and assess damage from trauma. Digital imaging also lets us store patient images, and makes it easy for us to transfer them to specialists or insurance companies quickly.
Drs. Wonder and Price utilize Intraoral Camera technology to help you understand your diagnosis. An Intraoral Camera is a very small camera that gives us clear, precise, enlarged images of your mouth, teeth and gums, including details that might be missed with a standard mirror examination.
The camera helps speed diagnosis, which means less chair time for you! We store these images in our computer to keep a permanent record of treatments; we can also print these images for you, specialists, the lab, or insurance companies.
