Drs. John and Jason Hamberger can often utilize drill-less dentistry through air abrasion technology. This technology uses air and a sand-like material to remove the decay from the tooth without drilling. Often anesthesia is unnecessary, as well.
Drs. John and Jason Hamberger choose carefully which radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that are followed. X-rays allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. X-rays enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental X-rays are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Drs. John and Jason Hamberger utilize Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is considerably less when compared to traditional X-rays. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities before excessive damage occurs. Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
Drs. John andJason Hamberger utilize an intra-oral camera that helps enhance your understanding of your treatment options. An intra-oral camera allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums. With clear, defined, enlarged images, we can view the details together to educate you on your dental health.
Intra-oral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These images can be printed for you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.
Patients who are seeking Cosmetic Options benefit greatly with this technology. Using Pre-Operative Photographs and digital technology, we are able to discuss with our patients the treatment options available, so our patients can visualize their options. This allows for us and our patients a guide to follow so we can achieve the best results for each individual.
Drs. John and Jason Hamberger can take digital photographs and make cosmetic changes of the images that can help our patients decide which options are available. Patients view their appearances prior to and during treatment. This gives the patient the opportunity to view possible changes to their smiles!
Cone Beam CT Imaging
Drs. John and Jason Hamberger, for many years, have utilized their 3-D Scanner/Cone beam technology for accurately diagnosing and treatment planning more advanced needs. Cone Beam CT imaging provides dentists with a 3-dimensional view of your mouth, jaw & teeth. (like X-Rays, CT Scans have low amounts of radiation)
The scan from the CBCT can help the dentist see the entire dental anatomy and allows the dentist to zoom in on any area to better diagnose and treat your dental concerns. Patients can see their needs clearly and understand their options by engaging in their individual treatment.
