In 2003 Dr. Gordon Dannelly was one of the first Dental Offices in the area to upgrade to Digital Radiography. Digital Radiography has many advantages over using the older dental films that required chemicals (that are harmful to the evironment) and time to develop. Digital Radiography uses up to 90% less radiation, thus less exposure for the patient. We also have the advantage of storing and viewing the x-rays instantlly on our operatory computers. This makes it easier for the doctor to diagnose and explain different dental conditions to you as a patient.
CEREC® Same Day Dentistry
CEREC® uses CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) technology, incorporating a camera, computer and milling machine in one instrument.
The DIAGNOdent is a new high tech laser system that aids in early diagnosis of cavities in the complex anatomy of the chewing surfaces of teeth. It utilizes laser light of a defined wavelength to help detect and quantify demineralized tooth substances without x-ray exposure.
Dental Implants have become a very successful treatment option for replacing missing teeth. Dr. Dannelly and the staff of Hi-Tech Family Dentistry will be glad to explain how implants can improve your dental health. Please feel free to ask for the most current information on dental implant technology.
