The images are often captured by a digital x-ray imaging device that rotates around your head, and the images are displayed on a screen. It is easy to manipulate the image on the screen or change the position of the imaging device to get a better view.
The Intraoral camera is an imaging device that captures real-time images in your mouth. The camera is positioned in your mouth, and the images are displayed on a screen. The camera has a cable that connects to the screen. The camera helps our dentists to involve the patient in the diagnosis and treatment.
Laser treatment is used to treat gum disease. It can be a preferred technique because it kills the bacteria that cause gum disease.
Fibrin therapy involves the use of your own blood cells to enhance healing. The therapy is being used in dentistry to help patients recover quickly after dental procedures. The therapy seeks to take advantage of the body’s natural healing mechanisms, which are largely carried by the blood.
