"The team at Carmel Mountain Dental Care saw me same-day when I chipped my front tooth. They relieved my pain and fixed my smile in no time! I would recommend them to anyone who finds themselves in a dental emergency!"

"I have been a patient at CMDC for 3 years now. This place is truly a gem and I will not go anywhere else! I have seen multiple hygienists and two different dentists, they have all treated me with the best care, respect and great service. I have a lot of sensitivity, they keep that in mind and are gentle. They truly go above and beyond for their patients and I no longer dread the dentist! Thank you!"

Dental X-Ray Machine

Get a More Accurate Diagnosis with Digital X-Rays

Digital x-rays reduce patients' exposure to radiation by up to 90% in comparison to traditional x-rays. This digital technology also allows our doctors to enhance or zoom-in on images, giving them a better view of your teeth and leading them to more precise and accurate diagnoses. With detailed information, you and your doctor can make better decisions regarding your oral health. And you'll be able to view the images in a matter of seconds, which saves you time during your appointment.

You'll See What We See with Intraoral Cameras

At Carmel Mountain Dental Care, we value patient education. Using intraoral cameras not only allows us to get a complete and detailed view of your oral health, it helps us explain any issues or concerns you may have. Intraoral cameras allow us to show you real-time footage of your teeth and walk you through the problem spots. Our Rancho Peñasquitos team can also take images for your records to stay on top of potential issues. The images this advanced camera produces are precise and clear, which means we can find and treat smaller problems early-on. Prevention is the key to maintaining good oral health, and we can do it with less invasive care and more cost effective options.

Digital Dentistry Frequently Asked Questions

With technology like digital x-rays and intraoral imaging at our San Diego office, we can deliver dental care that is less invasive, more accurate, and saves you time. If you have questions about what digital dentistry can do for you, feel free to give us a call or check out answers to these commonly asked questions.

How can digital dentistry benefit me?

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.

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.

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 at Carmel Mountain Dental Care. With technology 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.

Do you offer Invisalign?

If you want straighter teeth without the hassle of bulky metal braces, Invisalign is a state-of-the-art cosmetic dental solution that may be right for you. Invisalign is used to correct small gaps or reposition crooked teeth, and these clear aligners are virtually invisible. The aligners are also easily removable so you can enjoy your favorite foods while you comfortably straighten your teeth. We use digital dentistry to plan your treatment and give you an idea of what your results will look like before we even begin! Call our Rancho Peñasquitos office today to go over your options and learn more about how we use digital dentistry to prepare your mouth for a straighter smile!

What is Spectra Laser Cavity Screening?

Not all cavities are noticeable without the use of professional dental technology. Spectra 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 Spectra 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.
