Digital Technology Services
A picture is worth a thousand words! Dr. Phil utilizes intraoral photography to help you and your child visualize the oral cavity. These pictures can help guide the discussion points that are important for maintaining a healthy mouth.
Wireless Intraoral Scanning
Say goodbye to the cold, pink, and sticky goop we used to make molds of teeth. In our modern pediatric dental practice, we use digital scanning technology that creates an easy, pleasant, and precise way of taking a mold of your child's teeth and arch.
The standard of care for modern x-rays is the use of very low-radiation, digital radiography. Dr. Phil follows guidelines for safe and effective prescriptions of x-rays using state-of-the-art technology. The kid-friendly sensor plates make the process a lot more comfortable for your child and creates clear and detailed images of your child's teeth.
Digital panoramic x-rays provide detailed images of orofacial structures. It is a very important type of 2-D x-ray that allows Dr. Phil to provide important developmental discussions and also helps diagnose problem areas. These images are taken at specific points of your child's development to monitor growth of teeth and bony structures.
A cephalometric x-ray is another type of 2-D film that takes a side view of the head, showing the skull, teeth, jaws, spine, and the relationship of all these structures to each other. They are important diagnostic tools for a child that may require orthodontic intervention.
