Dentistry is currently undergoing a continuing technological revolution. Digital radiography, light-cured restorative materials, digitally assisted delivery of local anesthetics, digital photography, computer-guided color matching, and even electronic guidance in endodontic therapy are innovations that help us deliver the best that dentistry has to offer.
Your dental team at Wood Creek Dental is constantly evaluating new gadgets and gizmos to see what might be appropriate for our patients. Our primary objective while evaluating new technology is to see if it’s beneficial for you — our patient. It’s important that these new advances are good for our patients, making the technology a success for everyone involved.
There are some great machines in the market that may be great for “flash” and publicity, but may not the best for you. Ask us if you have any questions regarding the types of treatment adjuncts you see in our office: Call 864-288-5300 to speak to a team member at our Greenville office.
How State-of-the-Art Dental Equipment Helps Our Patients
The following are links to some of our favorite technologies:
- 3D Extraoral Imaging: We are the first practice in the state to implement this Kodak 9000 3D Extraoral Imaging system. This 3D technology offers unprecedented detail and accuracy for the most complex dental diagnostics, including endodontics, implantology, surgery and fractures. It yields anatomically correct images onscreen while reducing radiation exposure.
- Comfort Control Syringes
- Easy shade color matching: How do you match a paint color exactly? Take your couch cushion to Home Depot and have the paint shade matching computer tell the technician how to mix the color just right to achieve the perfect match. We have the same technology enhanced for creating beautiful smiles. “Close enough” is not good enough for your Wood Creek Dental team!
- Digital Photography: Up-to-date digital photography is used extensively in our office. A picture is worth a thousand words when it comes to communicating a dental condition to our patients. The patient can see for themselves exactly what the doctor is seeing. Dental imaging is available to help you see how a new smile will look on you!
