Panoramic Digital X-Rays
Panoramic x-rays show the entire mouth area — all the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws —on a single x-ray. This type of x-ray is useful for detecting the position of fully emerged as well as emerging teeth, can identify impacted teeth, and aid in the diagnosis of tumors.
This x-ray provides a full picture of your whole mouth, providing the dentist with images of your upper and lower jaw, sinuses, and jaw joint. The purpose of a panoramic x-ray is to show the general condition of all the teeth, and is used to help document general tooth development, trauma, jaw joint pain, wisdom teeth, bone loss, and certain abnormalities.
Introducing digital imaging, available in our practice. This technology offers unparalleled benefits over traditional radiographs. An image is taken of your mouth with a digital sensor and downloaded into our computer, where it is immediately available. With results of 90% less radiation than conventional X-rays, they’re convenient, safe for the environment, and best of all, Digital X-Rays are safer for our patients.
Cleans, sterilize, and store our instruments in the most efficient and hygienic manner possible.
An intra-oral camera is designed to take video or still photography. Dr. Mallonee can show you exactly what is going on inside your mouth and highlight areas where medical attention may be needed.
Soft Tissue Laser
For patients who find the vibration and high-pitched whine of traditional drills uncomfortable, there is another solution: laser dentistry. With this device there is no cause for heat or vibration in the mouth, and improves our patients’ comfort levels drastically, and is technologically advanced in that it can be used for treatments such as periodontal therapy (treatment for gum disease), or for cosmetic treatments like gum recontouring.
This innovative treatment uses laser-energized, cool water spray to cut soft tissue without generating any heat. And unlike some traditional dentistry procedures, the soft tissue laser will not irreversibly damage the soft tissue or pulp underneath your teeth. Cutting-edge, effective, and reliable, the soft tissue dental laser is the solution many patients have been waiting for.
