Cone Beam Imaging In December of 2014 the practice purchased a cone beam x-ray unit. Cone beam imaging is relatively new technology to dentistry but is having a profound effect on the way dentists can now gather information. Cone beam scans use a cone-shaped beam that is directed to a detector that rotates around the patient. The cone beam images are converted into three-dimensional images, giving the dentist the ability to see all structures in any given field. Highly complex software takes these hundreds of slices of information and reconstructs them according to the needs of the dentist, giving him precisely the application needed to diagnose and treatment plan. Oral anatomy not visible with traditional two-dimensional images is now revealed in clarity with cone beam imaging. Dr. Smith is now placing implants, and this new technology is a powerful tool in analyzing if you would be a good candidate for an implant, and in accurate placement once the treatment is undertaken.

Dental Fillings

Composite fillings are resin material which is tooth-colored. They are useful in small to moderate-sized restorations and are used on anterior (front) teeth, and are preferred for use on posterior (back) teeth in this practice for both durability and esthetic reasons. The area where the composite filling is to be placed must be kept dry during the filling procedure. Composite fillings usually take longer to place than an amalgam filling.
