When technology progresses, dentistry follows suit. Traditional x-rays and photography of yesterday have become digital now, making for more seamless processes and accurate recordkeeping. Dr. Kucera and the Caring Tree Children’s Dentistry team are enthusiastic about continuing education, learning new treatments and investing in new technology to allow for faster, easier treatments with the most accurate results possible. As a bonus, they are cool for kids to look at and learn about their teeth and what happens when Dr. K cleans or fixes them, too!
Caring Tree Children’s Dentistry works with you and your child to soothe their fears. Involving kids in the entire process in language they understand keeps them engaged, and technology’s advances just help seal the deal. We take every measure we can to raise their comfort level in the dental chair, including quick, detailed digital x-rays with intraoral cameras that show them what we are seeing. If it seems necessary, sedation dentistry options are also available.
Digital x-rays are significantly safer than they once were, producing up to 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays did. They are also more detailed and accurate, so small issues can be detected long before they become big problems. Digital x-rays are taken quickly and easily right from the dental chair (more comfortable to relax into), and images can be pulled up for viewing almost immediately.
Intraoral cameras have made a huge impact on dentistry—no more dentists or hygienists “eyeballing” the mouth with the help of a small mirror and hoping for the best! Intraoral cameras now allow real-time, high-resolution images that can be magnified to detect problems earlier. Because we are all looking at the same thing at the same time on the same screen, you and your child can ask questions and get answers right away.
