Dental Technology Charlotte, NC

Your teeth and gums need diligent care. We must brush and floss daily and visit our dentist frequently to avoid plaque and disease.

Fortunately, dentistry is a lot easier today thanks to advanced dental technology. The Alta Dentistry offers all of the latest innovations to make patient appointments faster, more effective, and more comfortable.

Digital Impressions

Have you ever gagged during one of those goopy impressions? Our Trios e-Shape scanner eliminates the need for those unpleasant impressions of the past.

With digital impressions:

  • We take images instantly
  • We create highly accurate 3D images of your mouth
  • The patient is more comfortable
  • Your dental team can design a precise treatment plan based on your exact needs

Intraoral Cameras

The intraoral camera is an amazing diagnostic tool we use to view different angles in your mouth. With the intraoral camera, we can see structures that we would not have been able to see a few years ago. We can view the entire mouth on a monitor along with the patient, so together we can take a closer look at any potential problems.

Digital X-Rays

Digital x-rays are a staple of modern dentistry. They allow us to glean critical information about your smile while offering you greater protection. Digital x-rays emit up to 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays, therefore keeping you safer.

Panorex X-Rays

Panorex x-rays give us a wide and complete image of your entire mouth. When we can see the mouth as a whole, treatment planning is more accurate. We get a sense of a bigger picture and how your smile will work after treatment.

Laser Dentistry

Lasers are transforming dentistry with minimally-invasive alternatives to traditional dental tools. Instead of using scalpels and sutures, we use light. Lasers are a single wavelength beam of light that evaporates tissues instead of cutting them.

The laser ensures:

  • Precise control over depth and extent of cutting
  • Less bleeding
  • Greater sterilization of treatment area
  • Minimal risk of infection

Our dental technology is versatile and helps every patient achieve their smile goals in comfort. To schedule an appointment or to learn more about our dental technology, call Alta Dentistry today!
