For the most precise aspects of restorative procedures, we use fiber-optic hand-pieces. This results in extraordinarily precise interfaces between your tooth and your new restoration (crown, veneer, or filling). This will bring more comfort to you as well. With a more precise tool, there is less vibration and less noise.
The office of Kennedy Dental utilizes intraoral camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An intraoral camera is a very small camera – in some cases, just a few millimeters long. An intraoral camera allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order for us to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations.This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you! Our office also uses extraoral cameras to help you understand your treatment and visualize treatment options.
Intra oral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These images can be printed for you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.
In the year 2010, Kennedy Dental made a committment to proceed with a paperless office. This transition has been exciting and beneficial to our patients. The future holds more “green” changes in the field of dentistry.
