Intraoral cameras take high-resolution images of your mouth, allowing Dr. Le to target specific areas or the whole jaw. These digital images give her insight into areas in your mouth that would otherwise be difficult to see, allowing her to identify issues before they become larger and more complicated.
These cameras are small and pen-like and can be easily positioned inside your mouth to take detailed pictures of otherwise difficult areas to see with the naked eye. These images can then be immediately accessed and reviewed by both you and your doctor.More About Intraoral cameras
Digital x-rays are a vast improvement on traditional x-rays. They are safer and allow Dr. Le to see higher-quality and more in-depth than x-rays ever have. Digital x-rays take only a few seconds to capture images, and the sensors used are much smaller and more comfortable than traditional x-rays. Your safe, high-quality digital x-rays can be viewed instantly and are easily transferred to specialists, if necessary. You can also keep a copy for your files if needed. Digital x-rays also produce no hazardous waste, so they are more environmentally friendly than traditional x-rays.More About Digital X-Rays
Laser Gum Treatment
Dr. Le also specializes in using dental lasers to treat soft tissues, reduce the need for surgical treatments, or drilling when battling gum disease. Lasers allow her to focus only on the infected or damaged tissues, preserving healthy tissue whenever possible. Lasers can also seal nerve endings, reducing discomfort when healing.
These digital devices allow Dr. Le to get a comprehensive view of the layout and underlying structures of your bite, replacing the need for putty impressions when preparing you for crowns or dentures. Intraoral scanners can take in-depth images of your jaw, allowing Dr. Le to access parts of your mouth previously unseen. This increases the effectiveness and stability of your restoration, as well as your comfort throughout the process.
