Please take a moment to learn more about the cutting-edge technology we offer!

3D Printer

State-of-the art 3D printing technology can bring even greater accuracy to the daily dentistry. With this technology, we can create a surgical guide for implant body placement. This will allow us to place implants precisely and fast. Patients will be safer during even complicated surgeries. The 3D printer will be great addition to digital dentistry that we, Whitetree Dental, envision.

3D Intraoral Scanner

One of the most important benefits of 3D scanner is improving patient experience. we have all been to the dentist and at one time or another and needed to take an impression. It is not fun. Some patients are even fearful of taking impression because of their gagging reflex. Taking digital impressions is more comfortable for patients. It is so much faster to digitally scan a mouth. It goes by so quick and there’s no plastic gooey mess.

Cone Beam Computerized Tomography (CBCT)

Dental x-rays are an invaluable diagnostic tool, but the images they produce are two-dimensional. Now, using state-of-the-art cone beam computed tomography (or CBCT), we can visualize the oral cavity in 3-D. CBCT helps us locate important anatomical structures like nerves and sinuses when planning the placement of your dental implant. 

CBCT is also a valuable tool for planning root canal treatment. Since the doctors can see highly detailed 3-D images of a tooth, they can locate the root canals to see what they're dealing with and plan your treatment accordingly. Using this detailed information, we can provide you with a root canal procedure that's more comfortable and efficient and produces better long-term outcomes.

Intraoral Camera

We are always happy to invest in new technology when it provides our patients with an accurate picture of their oral health and a better understanding of our recommendations. Until recently, there was no way for patients to see exactly what the dentist was seeing during an exam. Now, intraoral cameras provide us with the perfect tool for sharing important information about your oral health with you. 

An intraoral camera is a small handheld instrument about the size of a pen. As the doctor directs the camera over your teeth, the images are projected directly onto a computer monitor mounted next to your chair. Since you see what our doctor sees, you can better understand what the problem is, why it needs to be addressed, and what we can do to fix it.

Digital X-Rays

Many common dental issues start where they can’t be seen – like in between the teeth or under the gum tissue. Digital x-rays allow us to find these problems when they’re small, long before they cause discomfort.

Images produced by digital x-rays are so highly detailed that we can project them directly on our chairside monitors so you see exactly what we see. Our doctors can manipulate the image, make it larger or smaller, and even adjust the contrast so you can immediately see what the problem is and why treatment is necessary.

Our patients also like the safety of digital x-rays because they use significantly less radiation to produce these images than film x-rays. Some estimates say that digital x-rays reduce your exposure by as much as 80%!

Digital images are stored securely in your patient record, making it easy to send them electronically to specialists and insurance providers when necessary. And because no chemicals are required to process digital images, they are better for the environment!
