The image to the left is the INSTRUMENTARIUM OP300 Cone Beam scanner used in the offices of the Scarsdale Dental group. A traditional x-ray is only two-dimensional. With Cone Beam systems the doctor is able to get a full 360 degree digital view of the tooth and surrounding areas. The 3D Cone Beam scanner provides nearly limitless views of the teeth while using less radiation than traditional medical CT technology. This technology is fast, simple and painless, providing many wonderful benefits in improving the outcome of more complex dental procedures.
Scarsdale Dental Group uses an intra-oral camera is capable of 5x magnification and allows our professionals see cracks in teeth and defective restorations. The photos may be saved digitally, can be printed, and frequently are sent to an insurance company.
An intra-oral camera combines the latest video technologies with dental care. Both the patient and dentist can see detailed images of the teeth and mouth in real time. With an intraoral camera, you are able to better understand what is happening in your mouth and review the status of your oral health.
The goal of oral cancer screening is to identify mouth cancer early, when there is a greater chance for a cure. Oral cancer affects thousands of Americans yearly. Scarsdale Dental Group includes Oral Cancer screenings in our comprehensive examination treatments. We use the latest technology to detect changes in oral tissue consistencies and/or lesions. A specialized light is shined into the mouth to detect unhealthy tissue. Healthy tissue looks lighter under the light while spots of bad tissue appear dark.
