Technologies at Our Dental Clinic
At Log Home Dental, we use technology to help our team plan treatments and make your dental appointments run smoothly.
In our treatment rooms, we display digital X-rays and scans on monitors so we can show you any issues in your mouth and guide you through your treatment plan.
Our goal is to provide patients with dental care while making sure they have all the information they need about their oral health. Dental technology helps us accomplish these goals.
With digital X-rays, digital sensors replace traditional photographic X-ray film. They produce highly detailed computer images of the teeth and gums, in addition to other oral structures and conditions, enabling your dentist to examine parts of the mouth that are invisible to the naked eye.
We can use a panoramic X-ray to create a single image of your entire mouth. This flat representation of the teeth, upper and lower jaws, nasal and sinus structures and temporomandibular joints (TMJ) can be used to help plan treatments for braces, extractions, implants, dentures and other procedures.
These focused light beams can be used in a variety of soft and hard tissue procedures. Dental lasers allow our dentists at Log Home Dental to perform procedures with less pain and fewer medical interventions. These lasers can be used to quickly harden dental restorations, whiten teeth, reshape gums or remove decayed or overgrown tissue.
Using intraoral scanners, we can create digital dental impressions, an ideal alternative to traditional dental impressions which can be inefficient and messy. The dentist will use an optical scanning wand to capture a digital image of your teeth within minutes. This device allows your dentist to gather accurate data to create digital replicas of your mouth's hard and soft tissues.
Oral Cancer Screening Device
The VELscope® is an oral cancer screening device that helps the dentist identify abnormalities and diseases in the mouth, such as cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions. Using fluorescence visualization technology, it can be performed in your dentist’s office during routine exams and under normal lighting conditions in about two minutes.
Cone Beam Cat Scan
Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a special type of X-ray machine that generates 3D images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths and bone in the craniofacial region in a single scan. Images obtained with CBCT allow for more precise treatment planning, including analyzing your airway for snoring and sleep apnea treatment.
CEREC Same-Day Restorations
CEREC® (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a system that allows for the fabrication and placement of ceramic dental crowns, inlays and onlays in a single appointment.
