By utilizing the most advanced technology available, Dr Milton Drakulovic ensures that each patient achieves optimal results. Some state of the art technology we have implemented at Smile Creations Dental includes a chart-less office, digital x-rays, intra-oral digital photography, laser cavity detection (Diagnodent), and Vizilite Oral Cancer Screening.
Digital radiography (digital x-ray) is the latest technology used to take dental x-rays. This technique uses a phosphorus plate (instead of x-ray film) that captures and stores the digital image on a computer. This image can be instantly viewed and enlarged helping the dentist and dental hygienist detect problems easier. Digital x-rays reduce radiation 90% compared to the traditional dental x-rays.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is one of the most curable diseases when it's caught early. That's why the ViziLite Plus exam has been developed. ViziLite Plus uses technology that has proven successful in identifying soft tissue abnormalities in other areas of the body. A ViziLite Plus exam is particularly important if you are at increased risk for developing oral cancer.
The intra-oral camera broadcasts images for both the patient and doctor to see. Instantaneously the images are sent to a computer screen so that both the patient and doctor can review your oral health together. This wonderful new technology allows you to relax in your chair while simultaneously observing a real-time movie of the inside of your mouth magnified beyond normal size on an adjacent computer monitor. Not only does this make it simple to see and understand what is happening in your mouth, but it makes it simple for us to keep incredibly accurate records from one visit to the next.
These intra-oral cameras not only increase the dentist-patient communication, but can also aid in insurance claim reimbursement, by including color images along with our digital radiographs.
