Technological advances enhance the skills of dental professionals and allow them to provide the best services to their patients. Southern Smiles is fully aware of this, and we’ve paired our knowledge and skills with state-of-the-art technology. Thanks to our modern equipment and expert hands, we can deliver quality treatment to whoever sits in our dental chair.
Invisalign® is a modern orthodontic treatment that fixes slight tooth and jaw misalignment issues. We start by taking impressions of your teeth and designing a custom plastic aligner you must wear for 20-22 hours a day. Your Invisalign® tray exerts pressure on your crooked teeth and bite, correcting their position and giving you a gleaming, straight smile. Not only is this innovative technology invisible, but it also doesn’t require any food restrictions, troublesome metal wires, or long dentist visits.
The iTero scanner allows us to make impressions of your teeth to design your new Invisalign®. Have a seat and relax as we scan the inside of your mouth with a small machine to take detailed pictures of your oral tissue. These images create a 3D rendering of your smile with laser technology, allowing us to create personalized invisible aligners for an effective treatment.
CBCT (3-D) Scanner
Cone beam 3D imaging is a modern technology that gives us a comprehensive view of your oral tissue. With this scanner, we can detect dental problems in your gums, teeth, and jaw, as the device provides a 360-degree view using less radiation than traditional x-rays. Cone beam 3D imaging also allows us to see if you have the proper bone density for dental implants, and to plan the perfect position to place these artificial teeth. This safe, high-quality scanning process brings dangerous issues to light, such as:
Digital X-rays provide gray but clear pictures of your mouth and jaw with a safe dose of radiation. This technology helps our team diagnose, treat, and prevent dental problems beyond the surface of your teeth. You must stay still, wear protective gear, and let us take shots that then show on our computers. The images might be 2D, but their quality is detailed enough to show issues like cavities, infection, and tumors.
