CEREC stands for Ceramic Reconstruction and is a sophisticated system of designing and making high quality, metal-free dental restorations in one appointment. Cerec technology allows Dr. Thuernagle to take digital impressions to construct precise restorations that look excellent, fit perfectly and last a long time! This is all done in less than a couple of hours.
A digital x-ray allows the dentist to take an image of the tooth or teeth. As a benefit to the patient, the digital x-ray also provides nearly 80% less radiation than a standard x-ray. This is due to the fact that the digital version of the x-ray is much more sensitive to this radiation and has been specifically designed with the patient in mind.
The intraoral camera is an amazing diagnostic tool for viewing different angles in the mouth. The camera gives us the ability to view the entire mouth on a monitor so that we can get a closer look at any potential issues or problems that may arise. In addition, the patient will have the ability to see for themselves first hand the same images we are seeing.
3D diagnostic system is a cutting edge dental technology that delivers superior quality images of your teeth with one of the lowest dosages of radiation. 3D scans capture much more data than traditional x-rays. A 3D scan will give the doctor an in-depth picture of your jaw, mouth, and teeth. He uses this information to determine whether cavities, abnormal growths, or other dental conditions exist–especially conditions that aren’t evident from a traditional 2D panorex x-ray. Images from GALILEOS helps Dr. Thuernagle make a diagnosis quickly, easily, and accurately.
