Dental Technology

At Cedar Creek Dental, we use a variety of x-rays and dental technology in order to ensure top quality dental care. We always have the health and welfare of our patients at the forefront of our minds and take every precaution necessary to ensure the safety and comfort of our patients during the use of various technologies and dental procedures.

Digital X-Rays

X-rays are the best way for us to see things that are unable to be seen during the manual exam. Issues, such as hidden decay, cysts, tumors and impacted teeth can all be caught early through the use of x-rays, allowing us to provide the minimally invasive treatment to rectify the problem. At Cedar Creek Dental, we choose to use digital x-rays because of the decreased exposure to radiation as opposed to traditional x-rays.

In addition to the safety of the digital x-rays is the versatility it provides our patients. The results of digital x-rays are immediately portrayed on a computer screen where you can view them alongside our staff. When we are viewing the x-rays, we are able to zoom in on areas of concern or adjust the contrast to ensure a proper view of the entire mouth. Because the results are available right away, it also helps to decrease the length of your appointments as well as allowing you to be involved in the decision making process when determining the appropriate treatment for the problems discovered.

Intra-Oral Camera

Intra-Oral Camera

When there are problems occurring inside your mouth that you are unable to see during the exam, we have the ability to use an intra-oral camera to include you in on the exam. This tiny tool portrays the images of what we are seeing on a computer screen in front of you. This allows us to have a conversation about what we see as a problem in your mouth. This enables us to reach our goal of providing our patients with as much education as possible in order to empower you when it comes to your oral health.

UltraSonic Scalers

Ultra Sonic Scalers

At Cedar Creek Dental, we are committed to our patient's comfort, which is why we offer ultra-sonic scaler cleaning for our adult patients. Rather than submitting you to extensive scraping, which can often cause dental anxiety, we use the scalers to remove tartar and plaque accumulation. This tool provides ultrasonic cleaning by creating bubbles that work on breaking up the plaque and tartar built up on your teeth. The scalers can get in the tiniest crevices, allowing us to remove all plaque and tartar, reducing your risk of periodontal disease or tooth decay. The process is painless, does not use any harmful chemicals and is performed much faster than manual scraping, enabling you to have a shorter appointment.

At Cedar Creek Dental, we are proud to provide today's latest dental technologies to ensure the safety and comfort of each of our patients. If you have any questions regarding the technologies used in our office, we encourage you to call us at 503-498-6030 and talk to one of our knowledgeable staff members today.
