Drs. Kudla, Sr. and Jr. understand that we provide a more comfortable experience for our patients by using the latest dental technology. We're excited to share information about some of the equipment we're using and how it makes your visits to our Mountainside dental office more pleasant and stress-free.
Take a look here at some of the technology you can expect to find when you visit Mountainside Family Dental.
Digital x-rays are an integral tool our dentists use to diagnose and detect any concerns as early as possible. These x-rays are readily available to share with you on the monitors in our treatment rooms right after we take them. This makes it easier and more convenient for you to make timely decisions about your dental care.
Digital x-rays are also better for our environment since they don't require chemicals to develop them.
3-D Imaging/Digital Impressions
At Mountainside Family Dental, Dr. Rob and Dr. Bob utilize a device called an intraoral scanner, specifically the 3Shape TRIOS3. This device allows us to scan your mouth instead of taking a traditional dental impression.
We use the scanner to make a 3-D image of your teeth for many different procedures, from crowns to invisible braces with Invisalign.
Our dentists can send images from our scanner directly to the dental lab, which also helps speed up the turn around time for procedures.
Preventive dentistry helps you to avoid problems like tooth decay and cavities.
Transillumination imaging through innovative technology like the DEXIS CariVu allows our dentists to detect tooth decay as early as possible so you can treat it before it becomes a more significant problem.
It also lets you see on our monitor where the decay is in your tooth so you can make the right decisions about the dental treatment that is best for your smile.
Wouldn't it be great if you could see what your dentist sees? Now you can!
The intraoral camera is a pen-sized device that allows us to take full-color pictures of your teeth and the inside of your mouth. This is extremely useful for patients who need dental treatment because it helps them understand what's needed and decide on the right procedures.
