At Aspen Dental, we leverage technology to deliver dental care to patients. This includes dental lasers, digital and panoramic x-rays, and intraoral scanners.
Technologies at Our Dental Clinic
At Aspen Dental, we leverage technology to aid in treatment planning and streamline your dental appointments. We can show you any issues in your mouth and walk you through your treatment plan thanks to digital x-rays and scans on the monitors in our treatment rooms.
Our mission is to provide dental care while also educating patients about their oral health. Dental technology helps us do this.
Instead of traditional photographic x-ray film, digital x-rays use digital sensors. They generate highly detailed computer images of the teeth, gums, and other oral structures and conditions, which enables your dentist to examine areas of the mouth that are not visible to the naked eye.
Panoramic x-rays enable your dentist to capture an image of your entire mouth in a single shot. This image depicts the teeth, upper and lower jaws, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), and nasal and sinus structures on a flat plane. Panoramic x-rays are frequently used to help the planning of dentures, brace, extraction, and implant treatments.
Lasers (ultra-focused light beams) can be used in a variety of soft and hard tissue procedures. They enable our dentists to perform dental procedures with less discomfort and fewer invasive treatments. Our dentists at Aspen Dental use lasers to remove overgrown or decayed tissue, reshape the gums, harden dental restorations, and whiten teeth.
Intraoral scanners generate digital dental impressions, which are an alternative to traditional dental impressions. Your dentist can use an optical scanning wand to capture a digital image of your teeth. This device enables your dentist to capture accurate data to create digital replicas of your mouth's hard and soft tissues.
Oral Cancer Screening Device
The VELscope® is an oral cancer screening tool that helps dentists identify abnormalities and diseases in the mouth, such as cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions. It can be performed in about two minutes in your dentist's office during routine exams and under normal lighting conditions using fluorescence visualization technology.
Cone Beam Cat Scan
Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a specialized type of x-ray machine that produces three-dimensional images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone in the craniofacial region. CBCT images help provide more precise treatment planning, including an airway analysis for snoring and sleep apnea treatment.
CEREC Same-Day Restorations
CEREC® (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a single-visit system that enables the fabrication and placement of ceramic dental crowns, inlays, and onlays.Learn More
