Upgrading technology helps improve dental care for every patient at San Mateo Dental Office. From digital x-rays that produce less radiation to an SLR camera which ensures that we won’t miss a thing during your exam, the technology we use makes a noticeable difference in your dental experience. Discover some of the equipment that makes your appointment quicker and more convenient throughout your appointment.
Improving Speed and Convenience – A Winning Combination
Our team at San Mateo Dental Office is always looking for new ways to make our patients more comfortable. In many cases, that also means getting you out of here and back to your day as quickly as possible. By investing in technology that makes remarkable improvements to the patient experience, we make your appointments quicker and more convenient than ever before.
Our Advanced Technology at San Mateo Dental Office
Whether it’s an SLR camera that helps us see every detail of your mouth or a much quicker and safer method of taking the x-rays we need, you’ll notice how our dental technology makes your dental appointment more convenient and comprehensive than ever. Some of the advanced technology our San Mateo dental team uses include:
X-rays have long been a necessity for dentists – they enable us to see the detailed contours of a patient’s mouth. The advent of digital x-rays comes with notable advantages that far surpass the traditional x-ray. One of the benefits patients are most excited about is the improved safety – our digital x-rays put out 85% less radiation than their traditional counterparts.
Digital X-rays Make Your Appointment that Much Faster
Another way that you’ll see a significant advantage from our digital x-rays is in how fast the process has become. Rather than waiting for a dental tech to take up to a dozen photos from various angles, our digital x-rays take all of the images we need in one sitting. Plus, they’re more clear and shareable than ever, so it’s a win/win for both us and the patients.
A high-quality camera is a priceless tool for dentists. At San Mateo Dental Office, we’ve invested in a top-quality SLR camera that provides clear images of crucial parts of a patient’s mouth. This reduces the odds of us missing a developing cavity or other dental health problems. The difference between a digital SLR camera and a standard one significantly improves the accuracy of care you receive at our San Mateo Office.
Straightening teeth is a major concern for a lot of Americans, and metal braces are no longer the only solution. If you want the straightening effect of braces without dealing with irritating wires and brackets, then we have the next-generation treatment for you. Invisalign straightens your teeth without metal.
How Does Invisalign Work?
Rather than showing up to have your wires tightened with metal braces, Invisalign uses customized aligners that are strategically replaced to tighten your teeth. Once you outgrow one aligner, the next will fit slightly tighter, and so on until your smile is well-aligned.
