Digital Imaging

Fowler Dental has a digital panoramic dental x-ray and cephalometric x-ray right here in our office.

A panoramic x-ray (PAN for short) constructs a detailed image of your mouth. Using small and completely harmless doses of ionizing radiation, our PAN displays your entire curved jaw and teeth in a flat, 2-D digital image. These images are used to prepare for treatments such as dentures, braces, implants, extractions, etc.

Additionally, a PAN scan can catch some potentially serious dental problems such as:

  • Periodontal disease
  • Cysts in the jaw bones
  • Tumors
  • Oral cancer
  • Impacted teeth
  • Sinusitis

 

Whereas our PAN scans your mouth, our cephalometric x-ray (there’s a mouthful!) captures a complete radiographic image of the side of your face. Our CEPH gives a comprehensive view of your teeth, jawbone, and soft tissue. It helps us measure teeth, find fractures or other injuries to the teeth and jaw, and provides crucial information on bite misalignment or malocclusions. 

Both PAN and CEPH are completely safe and require no prior preparation from patients.

Laser Dentistry

It’s not sci-fi. Since 1989, dentists have been using lasers alongside drills and other physical tools. By focusing light into a narrow, high-intensity beam, a laser can shape tissue, remove damaged tissue, and treat certain gum diseases.

Lasers are used in all kinds of dental procedures. They allow us to:

Dental lasers are safe, contactless, and painless. They offer more comfortable treatment options for some patients and are often more efficient and cost effective than conventional methods. A laser is like a dentist’s Swiss Army knife; it does it all.

A-dec Dental Chairs

We want you to enjoy your time at the dentist. That’s why we only use the latest, top-of-the-line A-dec dental chairs in our office.

These chairs are sleek, supportive, and ergonomic. From the slim-profile headrest to the 9-inch toeboard tilt, they cradle the patient’s whole body and allow for maximum comfort even during long operations. They’re so comfy, you may even fall asleep during a procedure! And with precision hydraulic parts that let the chairs adjust quietly and gently, we promise you won’t be jerked awake.

These chairs also include a ‘virtual pivot’ functionality. This lets them adjust to the natural motions of patients and maintain optimal comfort at all times, even when fully reclined.

iTero intraoral scanners

The iTero intraoral scanner allows us to map out your mouth and jaw and help prepare for braces or Invisalign. It is compact, handheld, wand scanner that looks like something out of Star Trek.

iTero is a high-tech replacement for traditional dental impressions, which used alginate or other liquid plaster product to create a physical cast of your teeth.

Using an iTero scanner, we can determine the exact position of your teeth and gums, constructs a 3-D image of your mouth, and even predict the expected outcome of your braces or Invisalign treatment!

iTero is quick, easy, and painless. It produces far more detailed and accurate models of your teeth than physical dental impressions.
