When Radiant Smiles opened, one of our goals was to provide the highest quality of dental care in the most comfortable setting possible. Our commitment to quality care means that our doctors stay current with the rapidly changing field of dental health. Our concerns about radiation and the best hygiene technologies are driving forces in his practice.
Our team and doctors have an ongoing goal to provide dental care with the lowest exposure to radiation possible. We accomplish this in several ways:
- For diagnostic x-rays we use equipment with the lowest possible x-ray radiation exposure.
- Our digital panoramic & external bitewing equipment provides enhanced imaging, uses less radiation, and is more comfortable for patients.
- Previously many cavities were diagnosed through x-rays. Now we use a new FDA-approved decay detection camera which is more accurate (99%) than any previous method. The added bonus is it uses zero radiation!
The SOPROLIFE camera uses florescence to detect decay, even in its earliest stages. It can detect decay that x-rays and the human eye miss. It provides unsurpassed image quality so our doctors can make the most accurate diagnosis. When treating cavities, being able to diagnose them early on is a great benefit, as restoring the tooth is easier and does not involve as much of the tooth structure as advanced decay.
