Broadway Smiles invests in the very latest technologies. This helps our dentists diagnose and treat dental problems in the most effective and efficient manner possible and enables us to provide the best treatment modern dentistry can offer. We provide the highest quality care with the latest techniques and materials.
Our technologies include:
A Digital dental x-ray is a form of X-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also, less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography.
An OPG (Orthopantomogram) is a panoramic or wide view x-ray of the lower face, which displays all the teeth of the upper and lower jaw on a single film. It demonstrates the number, position and growth of all the teeth including those that have not yet surfaced or erupted. It is different from the small close up x-rays dentists take of individual teeth. An OPG may also reveal problems with the jawbone and the joint which connects the jawbone to the head, called the Temporomandibular joint or TMJ. An OPG may be requested for the planning of orthodontic treatment, for assessment of wisdom teeth or for a general overview of the teeth and the bone which supports the teeth.
A Lat Ceph is a lateral or side view x-ray of the face, which demonstrates the bones and facial contours in profile on a single film. Lat Ceph x-rays are usually used in the diagnosis and treatment of orthodontic problems.
An Intra Oral Camera– gives you a visual view of every part of your mouth. With this start of the Art technology the advantages are never ending.
Soft Tissue Laser – dentistry can be used for a number of procedures performed by general dentists.
Laser provides an alternative to using a scalpel and can now be used to carry out, more quickly and virtually pain-free, most soft-tissue procedures (gum lifts/contouring) that would normally be performed with a scalpel.
With laser, depending on the procedure, there is often no need for stitches, so healing can happen up to five to six times faster. The shorter healing time allows you to undergo treatments within a week, instead of the typical six- to eight-week healing time for conventional gum surgery.
