Accurate diagnostics are a vital part of effective dental care, and at Stephens Gatewood & Associates, we’ve invested in highly-advanced technology for faster, more comfortable, and more precise examinations.
As well as evaluating for tooth decay, gum disease, and other common dental issues, your routine examinations will also entail a thorough oral cancer screening to check for potentially malignant tissue abnormalities.
Digital X-rays produce up to 90 percent less radiation than traditional X-rays, and provide immediate, high-resolution images of your teeth, gums, jawbone, and oral structures.
Our intra-oral camera produces a magnified, high-resolution video feed in real-time to provide your dentist with a clear picture of hard-to-see oral tissues.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) Scans
CBCT scans produce 3D images of your oral structures that are more detailed than standard digital X-rays, and are often crucial for complex procedures such as dental implant placement.
Laser Dental Techniques
Laser dentistry involves the use of a highly-advanced concentrated light beam (or laser) to perform minor oral surgery procedures without a scalpel or the need for sutures.
DIAGNOdent Laser Cavity Detection
DIAGNOdent can highlight the earliest signs of tooth decay (i.e., spots of eroded tooth enamel) that cannot be detected with a visual inspection or other imaging technology.
