At the office of S.C. Myers, DMD we are committed to using the most up-to-date technological tools available to help you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile. We know that your time is valuable, so we do all we can to make sure it is used wisely. As a courtesy to our patients, you can elect to have appointments confirmed via telephone, email, or text.
Additionally, we have multiple computer monitors in each operatory so information can be viewed efficiently regarding your current oral health, treatment options, treatment planning and scheduling. Our office is totally computerized, making your complete health record available as a digital chart that can be easily reviewed by Dr. Myers, his staff, or other professionals involved in your care.
With digital x-rays, we are able to obtain accurate and detailed images of your mouth and tooth structure with the benefit of significantly less radiation exposure to you. Patients can view their x-rays instantaneously on computer monitors. These types of radiographs assist Dr. Myers in diagnosing cavities, periodontal disease, and abnormal tooth anatomy.
Digital panoramic x-rays allow us to see a broader view of the jaw, teeth, nasal area, bone level, tempromandibular joints and to detect cysts, infections and growths. Digital imaging allows us to store your radiographic information in your computer chart, enabling us to quickly retrieve and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
An intra-oral camera wand is approximately the size and shape of a dental mirror with a built-in light source and a tiny video camera. It allows us to zoom in on one tooth with magnification or gives you a “video tour” of your entire mouth.
The images are displayed on a computer monitor so you are able to see problems such as worn or broken fillings, cracked teeth, plaque deposits and excessive wear. It is an advanced piece of diagnostic equipment that allows you to see what we see in your mouth.
A picture is worth a thousand words and this is certainly true to educate you about your current state of oral health. During your comprehensive examination, we utilize an extra-oral digital camera to take photographs of your mouth.
These photographs are images that allow you to view your mouth as a whole and better visualize the condition of your mouth.
