At Dentistry for Kids and Adults, we are committed to delivering quality dental care to you and your family safely and efficiently. As a part of this commitment, we continuously seek out the best materials and technology to help us provide the best possible care and create a pleasant experience every time you visit.
Less Radiation and no Wait!
Digital Radiography has changed the way we take dental x-rays, making the process safer, faster and a lot more comfortable. Unlike traditional x-rays that use film, digital x-rays are taken with a small digital sensor that uses significantly less radiation and doesn’t require the use of chemicals to develop the images.
With digital x-rays, high-quality images instantly pop-up on the screen, saving time and allowing us to review your x-rays and share our findings with you right in the treatment room. The use of digital technology also helps us make a more accurate diagnosis and make better treatment recommendations.
Co Diagnosis with an Intra-Oral Camera
An intra-oral camera is a small, pen-like device used to take high-quality, magnified, color images of your teeth and gums. It helps us diagnose and document certain conditions that may not be visible on x-rays, and it allows us to share this information with insurance companies and dental specialists as needed. Most importantly, an intra-oral camera allows our patients to see what we see and helps them make informed decisions about their dental health and any recommended treatment.
We are proud to be one of the first practices in Santa Clarita to utilize Cone Beam 3D technology. This advanced technology allows us to take three-dimensional of your mouth and jaw with less radiation and in less time than traditional film. With a three-dimensional view, we can make more accurate diagnosis and provide dental treatment safely and effectively.
Early Cavity Detection
DIAGNOdent is a revolutionary new way to find even the smallest areas of tooth decay and cavities. By using the advanced DIAGNOdent technology, we can treat small cavities and areas of tooth decay before they become larger issues requiring multiple procedures.
DIAGNOdent is a pen-like device that uses a precise laser scanning system to scan your teeth while sending out an audio signal and registering a digital read-out. By measuring the fluorescence within each tooth’s structure, we can identify where cavities are developing on and around your teeth. DIAGNOdent is comfortable and takes only a few short minutes to scan your entire mouth for cavities and decay. Detecting tooth decay as early as possible helps eliminate the number of costly treatments that you may need down the line and helps treat small problems before they become serious dental cases.
Electronic Dental Records
Our practice is completely paperless, which means that our patients’ charts, clinical notes, medical histories, x-rays and other vital records are stored electronically. Using less paper is great for the environment, and it helps us provide safer, convenient, and more thorough care to our patients.
Our robust software allows our patients to complete registration forms online from the comfort of their homes or an iPad in our office so that we start every appointment without delays. The software also automatically detects any medical conditions, allergies, medications, and other critical factors that need to be considered to ensure that the care that we provide to our patients is safe.
For Your Comfort
Isolite is an innovative device that makes your procedure more comfortable, reduces treatment time, and assures high-quality dental care for you and your loved ones. Isolite is a soft, flexible mouthpiece that gives patients a place to rest their jaw and relax. It protects the tongue and cheeks, keeps away any debris and controls bad tastes and smells. It also continuously evacuates any water for a more comfortable appointment and better quality dentistry.
