Digital Imaging

Drs. Ira & Sara Halper chooses carefully which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. 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 analyze the health of your 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. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Drs. Ira & Sara Halper utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities better.

Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.

Digital X-Rays:

Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light. Digital X-rays results in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you.

Intraoral Camera

Many patients, especially younger patients, are very familiar with the latest technology and are comfortable with the high tech practice. Computers and TV screens are their primary method of information processing.

Drs. Ira & Sara Halper utilizes intraoral camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An intraoral camera is a very small camera – in some cases, just a few millimeters long. An intraoral camera allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order for us to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you!

Intra oral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These images can be printed for you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.

Caesy

To help our patients become better informed about dental treatments we use a multimedia patient education programs, Caesy . Using language that is easily understood, along with outstanding photographs and graphics, this program allow us to display information about any dental subject using a TV or computer monitor. We feel that this helps our patients to become better informed about their dental treatment and the alternatives that are available to them in modern day dentistry.

X-Rite Shade Vision

The ShadeVisionTM System is designed to take the guesswork out of measuring and communicating tooth shades. It is designed to ensure that each dental restoration matches not just the tooth it replaces, but the teeth surrounding it. Our office utilizes this technology to insuring our patients receive the most esthetic dentistry we can provide and combines the art and science of dentistry.
