Here at DICE, we are committed to keeping up with the latest and greatest dental technology in order to give our patients the best experience possible. We utilize the following tools to help diagnose, treatment plan, and perform your dentistry to the best of our ability. Scroll over each image to get a description of how this tool helps improve your appointment.
Because we have 3D xray capabilities, you’ll never have to sit through 18 old school film xrays that make you gag again. Many of our patients are super impressed by the futuristic feeling of this machine and that’s even before they see the quality of the image that pops up on the screen when it’s done. Dr. Katie loves using this tool because it truly helps her show and explain to her patients their problems/barriers to overcome for treatment. During each consultation, she will sit down with you individually to review your entire scan. You will be able to see any issues you have on the computer screen and will decide on a treatment plan that is tailored to your needs that fits both your expectations and budget.
For implants that are in a tight space or in difficult surgical areas, Dr. Katie will make a custom surgical guide. The surgical guide allows her to pre-plan your exact implant placement on the computer and then recreate that in your mouth.
We use the 3D printer to show you mock-ups of your potential new smile options, to make full arch temporaries, and sometimes to even make your dentures!
Our most recently acquired piece of dental technology is the one we’re most excited for. With our in-house milling machine, we are able to totally control the quality and cost of your veneers, crowns, and implant parts. It also means faster turnaround time and a perfect fit of your crown, every time.
In addition to the 3D xray that we take for each consultation, we will also sometimes take cavity detection x-rays. The xray machine that we use here is incredibly low dose radiation to the point where patients no longer need to wear the heavy lead apron.
