Dental Technology in Streamwood and Hoffman Estates, IL
In order to provide our patients with the best possible dental care, Streamwood Family Dentistry uses state-of-the-art dental technology, including digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, and rotary endodontics. Our office utilizes digital technology to help reduce the amount of time our patients of all ages need to spend in the dental chair. By using digital technology whenever possible, it also allows us to go green and reduce our carbon footprint while providing more in-depth and accurate diagnostics as part of your dental treatment.
Digital X-Rays Offer Less Radiation than Regular X-Rays
It’s been estimated that digital x-rays expose patients to as much as 90% less radiation on average than regular x-rays. The other main benefit of using digital x-rays is the fact that they’re instantaneously available and visible on a computer screen for our dentist to discuss with you during the same dental appointment. No more waiting to get your x-rays back!
Intraoral Cameras help Accurately Diagnose Dental Issues
Using a tiny camera attached to a tube, intraoral cameras allow you to see what we see. While we provide a comprehensive dental exam to every patient during their regular checkup, sometimes it may be necessary to go a little more in-depth with an intraoral camera. This type of dental technology allows us to take close-up, detailed photos of cavities and other questionable areas inside your mouth to help us better diagnose issues and recommend the appropriate course of treatment.
Rotary Endodontics for Quicker, More Comfortable Root Canals
Many patients quake with fear when the words “root canal” are uttered at the dentist. Rotary endodontics allows our dentist to use a handheld electric tool to make root canal treatment quick and efficient while allowing for better patient comfort. Rotary endodontics are much quieter and tend to shape the root canals faster, sometimes in as little as one visit.
