Intraoral Cameras

An intraoral camera is specially designed for use in dentistry. This small handheld camera is about the size of a pen, and allows us to take highly detailed images of your teeth.

We can then display these images on a monitor so you can see what we see. Using these images, we can show you the reason you need treatment and discuss your options. The intraoral camera gives us the information we need to make diagnosis easier and more accurate. Intraoral cameras also help us provide information to lab technicians who craft our restorations like bridges, dentures, and veneers so that your dentistry can be done correctly the first time. 

Digital X-Rays

Digital radiography is the modern standard for x-ray imaging. Instead of using traditional x-ray film, we use small digital sensors to take pictures of your teeth. Digital x-rays are efficient since we can bypass the chemical processing stage; in fact, eliminating this step also makes digital imaging better for the environment!

These images provide a highly detailed view of your teeth while exposing you to the lowest amount of radiation possible. In fact, digital radiography exposes you to about 90% less radiation than traditional film x-rays.

Your time is valuable, and digital x-rays are processed by sophisticated software and are ready for view almost instantly. The digital image can be highlighted, enlarged, and rotated to make it easier to explain any concerns we have to you so that you can understand why we might be recommending a certain treatment. These images are then stored in your electronic file, making retrieval fast and simple for future appointments. 

Electronic Medical Records

We're happy to say that Midtown Modern Dentistry is a completely paper-free office! When you first arrive at our office, we'll help you fill out your forms on an easy-to-use electronic tablet. The information is then transferred securely to our in-house electronic system. Not only is this better for the environment, but it allows us quick, easy access to important information needed to help us make decisions about your dental care.

CEREC

CEREC is a remarkable new technology that allows us to craft certain restorations right here in the office while you wait! The CEREC system is ideal for creating beautiful, durable single crowns for the back teeth, and we are thrilled that this option is available to us. Using CEREC, we can eliminate multiple trips to our office, which saves time and helps us protect the environment.
