According to the ADA and dentists nationwide, your regular visit to the dentist plays a vital role in supporting and maintaining positive dental health. By spotting and treating small dental issues such as cavities and signs of tooth decay before they become large or expensive, patients are kept informed about their oral health and receive gentle, conservative care for their dental needs.
How Does Digital Dentistry Work?
Staying up-to-date on the latest treatment techniques and using the most advanced dental technology available is just one aspect of how we strive to elevate patient care and wellness. With services such as digital X-rays and intraoral imaging, patients receive dental care that is less invasive and more accurate, saving them time and peace of mind and creating more positive memories at the dentist.
Safe, Convenient and Precise
As caregivers in our community we never recommend treatments unless they are necessary and strive every day to raise the bar of general, cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Using digital dentistry, our patients have more options and control over their oral health with enhanced treatments and services.
Digital X-rays: Our digital X-rays reduce the radiation exposure of typical X-rays by up to 90%. In addition, digital X-rays provide advanced imaging options specially designed to provide detailed dental photos available in a matter of seconds–so patients are not kept waiting on film to develop.
Intraoral Cameras: Prevention is one of the largest aspects of your oral health. At Carmel Mountain Dental Care, we use small intraoral cameras to achieve a complete view of everything going on inside the mouth, beyond the scope of even what X-rays can accomplish. Intraoral cameras pick up 3-D images in incredible detail, observing cracked teeth, plaque deposits, small cavities around fillings and excessive wear or damage. By observing and treating small oral problems early-on, we’re able to prevent more serious dental issues using dental care that is less invasive and more cost effective.

DIAGNOdent Laser Cavity Screening
Not all cavities are noticeable without the use of professional dental technology. DIAGNOdent is a revolutionary new method in modern dentistry used to detect even the smallest areas of tooth decay and cavities. By treating small cavities with minimally invasive treatments, we’re able to prevent small dental issues from becoming a large or more expensive problem. By reducing risks of tooth decay and cavities, patients save time and money on restorative care. Our DIAGNOdent process is comfortable and simple, using a precise laser scanning system to scan over the surface of the teeth in the matter of a few minutes.
Invisalign Clear Aligners
If you desire straighter teeth without bulky metal braces taking up space in your family photos, Invisalign is a state-of-the-art cosmetic dental solution. Used to correct small gaps or reposition crooked teeth, these clear aligners are virtually invisible in appearance and are easily removable, so you can enjoy all of your favorite foods while you comfortably straighten your teeth.
