Dental Technology

We don’t buy expensive dental technologies in order to brag. They’re an expression of our mission to serve you better. Dr. Thompson uses technology to get you dental results faster, more safely, and more comfortably.

These diagnostic technologies identify the dental problem causing your pain and help us map out a solution. We use them to help us get to effective services quickly and prevent further pain or damage.

Cutting-Edge Diagnostic Technology

These diagnostic tools represent the latest that dentistry has to offer. They can give us a picture of what you need in just a few seconds. That allows us to give you better dental services to relieve your discomfort and send you on your way quickly.

Cephalometric X-Rays

In about 10 seconds, this type of x-ray takes an image from outside of your mouth. No film is placed in your mouth. It reveals your jawbone, soft tissues, and teeth. It helps Dr. Thompson plan procedures, such as orthodontic work.

Digital X-Rays

Digital radiography uses 80–90% less radiation than traditional x-rays. An electronic detector picks up x-rays and immediately sends high-quality images to a computer. You’ll see the images of your teeth that your dentist sees. Dr. Thompson will use these to diagnose developing oral health issues.

Oral Cancer Screening

We use state-of-the-art oral cancer screening technology. This uses fluorescent lights to see precancerous and cancerous oral tissue that can’t be seen otherwise. In only a few seconds, we can help you catch cancer in the early stages.

Panoramic X-Rays

This x-ray device scans the entire dental area from outside the face, without any detector inside the mouth. It’s perfect for patients of any age. It provides images that can show extra teeth, improper tooth growth, missing bone, and other internal problems that are difficult to see without this technology.
