Benefits of Using Advanced Technology

A valuable investment for dental practices and patients
We use digital radiography to produce high-quality dental images essential for accurate diagnosis and treatment planning. This eliminates the need for traditional X-rays, which can take up to 20 minutes to develop. With digital radiography, images are captured in real-time and can be viewed immediately on a computer screen, allowing our Decatur dentists to diagnose conditions faster and with greater accuracy.
Digital radiography makes the diagnostic process faster and more efficient, it’s also safer for our patients. Digital X-rays emit less radiation than traditional X-rays, making them a safer option for patients of all ages, especially for those who are pregnant or have sensitive dental conditions.
Intra-oral cameras are small handheld cameras designed to provide clear, detailed images of a patient’s teeth, gums, and surrounding tissues. These images are displayed on a computer screen, allowing Dr. Spaulding to get a closer look at specific areas of concern and provide more accurate diagnoses.
This technology is particularly useful for detecting early signs of dental problems, such as cavities or gum disease before they become more severe. By showing patients a clear, detailed image of their teeth and gums, they can see exactly what the dentist is seeing and understand the importance of certain treatments.
Odyssey Diode Lasers
At Dr. Spaulding’s office, we use the Odyssey Diode Laser for a variety of dental procedures, including gum surgery, tooth whitening, and the removal of soft tissue growths. This technology provides a painless, minimally-invasive alternative to traditional surgical procedures.
The Odyssey Diode Laser uses a focused beam of light to precisely remove or reshape soft tissue without causing significant discomfort or damage to surrounding tissue. This allows for faster healing and less postoperative discomfort. The laser also sterilizes the area as it works, reducing the risk of infection and ensuring a quick and smooth recovery.
In addition to providing faster and more comfortable treatments, the Odyssey Diode Laser allows for greater accuracy and precision, making it a highly effective tool for various dental procedures.
