CBCT & 3D Imaging

Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) technology offers detailed, undistorted x-rays.

The x-rays diverge to form a cone and provide a 3D view for more accurate diagnoses & treatment.

When used for imaging relating to dental treatment, the CBCT scanner rotates around the patient’s head to collect close to 600 images in a few seconds. CBCT has been called the gold standard for imaging the oral and maxillofacial area.

  • CBCT is especially useful for implant and orthodontic treatment planning.
  • CBCT provides precise detail for dental cases when traditional x-rays might be insufficient.
  • CBCT scans do not require patient movement to compile a complete set of images.
  • CBCT capability allows Dr. Kapoor to keep more of your dental treatment in-house.

Digital X-Rays

Diagnostic imaging via digital x-rays transfers data directly to a computer for immediate viewing.

Digital radiography allows you to see what we see—as we’re seeing it.

Some of you may remember old-school x-rays that used film. Patients had to hold still for what seemed like an eternity while they were taken—and sometimes had to hold still all over again if they somehow moved and the resulting image blurred.

  • Digital x-rays use much lower levels of radiation, which limits patient exposure.
  • Digital x-rays can be manipulated via computer software for ease of viewing and allow zooming in on areas of concern or interest. Because images can be manipulated, detail is often clearer.
  • Digital x-rays are environmentally friendly—no film to develop!

Intraoral Camera

Intraoral cameras are a diagnostic tool that empower dentists to increase patient awareness.

Because you can see what Dr. Kapoor sees, treatment is easier to both explain and understand.

An intraoral camera is a small, wand-shaped camera that is moved around inside the mouth to obtain accurate views of even hard-to-reach areas. Lightweight and ergonomically designed, they incorporate LED lighting technology and strong magnification capabilities for precise assessments.

  • An intraoral camera can reveal damage to teeth and gums even if there is no physical pain.
  • Intraoral cameras are very effective for before and after treatment comparisons.
  • Patients can see what our team sees in real-time—including issues like corroded fillings, hairline fractures, or other issues that might not be easy to explain without a clear visual.

Laser Dentistry

What is laser dentistry?

Laser dentistry uses laser light energy to treat a wide range of oral health concerns, specifically periodontal disease. Periodontal disease, sometimes called “gum disease,” is a serious infection that can start in the mouth and carry bacteria throughout the body, increasing a patient’s risk of potential medical issues like diabetes, strokes, and heart attacks. Patients can reduce these potential risks by treating the infection in the mouth and maintaining a healthier smile and body. To do this, laser light energy is used to eliminate the bacteria on the teeth and gums. This procedure is also less invasive than traditional treatment methods such as scaling and root planing.
