Dr. Jenkins Discusses Advanced Dental Technology For Your Personalized Care

We Proudly Offer and Use The Following Advanced Dental Technology

Cone beam CT x-ray technology captures high-quality panoramic images of the inside of the mouth. These images provide digital, 3D representations of the teeth, bone, soft tissue, sinus cavities, and nerves. This sophisticated imaging technology provides precise, detailed information about the intraoral structures critical for accurate diagnosis and treatment planning. CBCT aids us in planning cosmetic and restorative procedures, diagnosing TMJ issues , and prepping for root canals.

DIAGNOdent is a small, portable laser that allows us to detect cavities on the chewing surface of the back teeth and treat these cavities, putting a stop to further decay. The laser is easy to use, harmless, and will alert us with an audible signal if it detects a cavity. It will even calculate the approximate size of the cavity so we can better plan treatment.

Digital Smile Design (DSD) is a technology that allows us to digitally plan restorative and cosmetic treatments. With DSD, we can also create mock-ups of the teeth before we even begin treatment so that patients can have a clear understanding of how their teeth will appear when treatment is complete. We use DSD to design dentures, veneers, and other restorations for more custom and accurate final outcomes and to ensure the most ideal facial aesthetics.

Intraoral cameras are about the size of a pen used to clearly see the condition of your teeth and gums. With this advanced technology, we can zoom in on small diseased areas, cracks, chips and worn metal fillings with extreme precision. The full-color images taken with the intraoral camera are sent to a computer screen allowing patients to see what we see for better education and earlier diagnosis and treatment.
Soft tissue dental lasers improve comfort and convenience for patients. We use our dental laser for tissue recontouring for those who have “gummy” smiles, gingivectomies for gum disease, soft tissue biopsies, and obtaining ulcerative lesions from inside the mouth. Our lasers eliminate the need for scalpels and incising the soft tissue during the procedure.
PLANSCAN is a revolutionary new technology that combines dentistry and cutting edge CAD/CAM technology to design and create composite or porcelain dental crowns, veneers, inlays, and onlays. We use PlanScan to provide same-day restorations for our patients. These restorations are highly durable and our expertise in this technology ensures beautiful results that match your current teeth in size, shape, and color.

We use exocad digital technology alongside our intraoral camera to design custom restorations, including for our full arch cases. This planning software aids us providing restorations that are highly esthetic and personalized to each patient.

We use digital radiography that allows us to take x-rays using up to 90 percent less radiation than conventional film x-rays. Using this technology, we can take a digital x-ray of your mouth by using a small sensor that records the image of your teeth and sends it to a computer. The result is a highly detailed image of your mouth that can easily be enhanced to better diagnose dental concerns and determine the very best treatment for each case.

Dr. Jenkins performs most of his dental procedures while wearing a pair of funny looking glasses called surgical telescopes. These powerful glasses have magnifiers on them, allowing him to see fine details that would go unnoticed to the naked eye.

Our office utilizes electronic claims processing, meaning rather than sending your dental claim through the mail, it is sent electronically to your insurance company. By filing your claim electronically, information is submitted more efficiently and with fewer errors. This benefits our patients by improving both the time and effectiveness of claims processing. We are happy to submit your dental claims to your insurance company on your behalf.
