Dental Technology

cummins-technology-1You and your loved ones deserve state-of-the-art technology and treatments. Advanced dental technology results in faster, more effective improvements in your smile.

Dr. Cummins provides all of her patients with the latest in dental technology, including:

Digital Radiography

Digital radiography is safer and more efficient than traditional x-rays. Digital radiography produces up to 90 percent less radiation than x-rays do, so you and your loved ones don’t need to worry about overexposure.

Digital radiography provides Dr. Cummins and her team members with detailed images of the structures of the mouth. These vivid photos allow us to treat you with precision.

This technology also allows us to see the results of your x-ray instantly. You can learn all about your health in just a few minutes–no more waiting for results!

Intraoral Cameras

Intraoral cameras are another way to capture perfect representations of your teeth, gums, and bones. Intraoral cameras are small and comfortable for the patient and easy to use for the dental professional. Better images ensure more comfortable and more impressive treatment results.

We know that our patients want to have all of the information that their dentists discover–after all, it’s your mouth! Intraoral cameras and digital radiography make it easier and faster than ever for dentists to share their findings with their patients.

cummins-technology-2Laser Therapy

We help our patients feel anxiety-free by providing dental lasers. In many procedures, dental lasers can replace the dreaded dental drill. Lasers assist our dental team to make both health and cosmetic improvements to your smile.

Lasers allow for a clean and successful procedure. They help you remain comfortable during and after your time with us. Dental lasers decrease your recovery time immensely.

You and your family members can benefit from our top-of-the-line technology every time you visit us. Call us today at Camelot Family Dental to schedule your appointment.
