Are some teeth wearing down more quickly than others? Do you have frequent jaw pain or headaches in the morning? Do you grind or clench your teeth while you sleep? You may have a condition called bruxism and have a problem with your temporomandibular joint (TMJ). The good news is that Dr. Gandhi can diagnose and treat these problems, often with a simple splint that keeps your teeth from touching during sleep.
Even with a traditional handheld mirror, there are parts of the mouth that are difficult to see clearly. That’s where a Dexis intraoral camera comes in. This small device is inserted into the mouth and captures clear images, which we display on large chairside TVs. Dr. Gandhi is then able to give you a more accurate diagnosis and show you exactly what the issue is. As a result, you can more easily understand your oral health and make more informed decisions about treatment.
X-ray technology has been around for many years. However, Dexis digital technology has made everything about X-rays better. Traditional X-rays had to be developed with harsh chemicals that harmed the environment and took time to develop. But now, we can view the digital images instantly. Not only are digital X-rays faster and greener, but they are better for your health because they involve up to 90 percent less radiation.
This sleek device enables us to quickly and easily take a digital impression of a patient’s teeth, which is much faster and more comfortable than the old way that involved the patient biting into a mold filled with dental putty. In a matter of minutes, we can create a highly accurate model of the bite that we can use to plan treatments or design restorations so they are guaranteed to deliver a positive and lasting result. Thanks to this instrument, there is no mess, no gagging, and no time-wasting retakes!
