Panoramic/Cone Beam Computed Tomography
A panoramic radiograph captures a quick, low-radiation, two dimensional image of the upper and lower jaw from ear to ear. This full-mouth image provides important diagnostic information including position of primary and permanent teeth, jaw and tooth lesions, bone defects and impacted wisdom teeth.
A CBCT radiograph captures a select region of the mouth in 3-D to identify pathology or treatment plan implant placement for missing teeth. This technology allows the dentist to surgically place a tooth-replacement implant strategically to idealize the final crown for cosmetics and function.
Communication is extremely important for the relationships we enjoy making with our patients. The use of intraoral cameras allows us to show you on the computer monitor areas of concern such as cracked teeth, plaque, cavities, wear, etc. This is a complimentary benefit during our examinations. They are a great way for us to have a conversation about your goals and questions, so that we can determine your best treatment plan and preventative regimen.
Digital dental radiographs produce a quick, detailed image that can be easily shared with each patient to explain their health. They have the benefit of much less radiation than traditional film radiographs (as much as 80%). Utilizing digital radiographs on a routine schedule, customized to your risk level, allows us to detect trouble early so we can be conservative in our treatment recommendations. They are also more environmentally friendly and allow for easy long-term secure storage.
Dental Implant Placement and Restoration
Dr. Harvey has been trained to place dental implants to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is a titanium root replacement which is placed using a radiographic surgical guide (see CBCT 3D x-ray machine above). Our dentist is able to treatment plan and customize your implant to build a perfectly positioned dental crown for esthetics and function, that mimics your original tooth, or even perfects it. Please schedule a new patient evaluation or consultation if you have teeth that need to be removed and replaced, or you are currently missing teeth and are seeking a dental solution that will improve your smile and ability to eat your favorite foods.
We take sterilization seriously in our office. Before processing our instruments in an autoclave, we utilize a state of the art instrument washer to clean our tools, providing optimal safety.
We utilize medical grade H13 True HEPA air purifiers in our office to provide cleaner air for our patients and team. These high-efficiency units catch 99.9% of pollen, dust and airborne particles down to 0.1 mircons.
ULV Electric Cold Fogger
In addition to disinfecting all surfaces between patients, we periodically utilize a fogger to mist our office with a non-toxic disinfectant called hypochlorus acid. We like this safe addition to our protocols, as it is a substance found naturally in all mammals and has been found to be effective against a broad range of microorganisms including COVID-19.
