Digital X-rays

There are many guidelines that Dr. Meckstroth follows to determine when to take x-rays

Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and health of bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.

Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. We utilize digital imaging technologies within our office. With digital imaging, exposure time is considerably less when compared to traditional radiographs and results in one-sixth the radiation exposure to you. Digital imaging makes it possible for us to retrieve valuable diagnostic information. Digital x-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film to the light.

The advantages of digital imaging also enables us to not only store patient images, but also enables us to quickly transfer them to appropriate specialists or insurance companies.

Same Day Dentistry

We understand that your life is busy, which is why we've invested in an E4D Denstist system that enables us to provide you with the dental care you need and want in a single visit. We scan your tooth rather than take a conventional impression. Then, a custom restoration is designed to fit your unique smile, after which it is transferred to the milling unit where your crown, filling, or veneer is created right in our dental office. The final restoration is placed in your mouth the same day.

Digital Scans

Digital scans use the latest laser technology which is not only extremely precise, but also as safe as the check-out scanner at the grocery store. Unlike conventional impressions that can be messy, unpleasant, and cumbersome, a digital scan is clean and fast.

No Temporaries

The benefits of a single visit restoration go beyond saving you time. Your final crown, filling, or veneer can be seated in the same appointment so you can avoid the hassle of a temporary and a second office visit.
