Dentistry is evolving faster than ever, enabling the team at Kobza Dental to address an even wider array of problems in less time while keeping our patients more comfortable. To Dr. Kobza, the only way to provide the absolute highest quality care is to use the most advanced instruments possible, and after your first appointment, we think you’ll agree with him. Read on below to learn more about some of the excellent tools we use every day.
Wouldn’t going to the dentist be so much easier if you could just see what they are talking about? With our intraoral cameras, now you can! A small, pen-sized device can be easily maneuvered through the mouth to capture highly detailed images of your teeth and gums we can then display on a nearby monitor. These will help us catch small dental problems even sooner, plus they will help you gain a much deeper understanding of your dental health in an instant.
X-rays give us the ability to spot dental problems even before they are visible to the naked eye, and to make this tool even better, we’ve gone all digital. With digital X-rays, we can create crystal clear images almost instantly, and they also emit up to 80% LESS radiation compared to traditional dental X-rays (which is great news for parents with young children). And, the images can also be blown up, rotated, and color-coded so you can easily understand them.
If you have ever received a crown or other restoration, you probably know that the traditional impression process can be time-consuming and uncomfortable. It is also not always accurate. Today, an easier alternative is available in our office: digital impressions. We simply move a special wand around a patient’s mouth. The scanner captures countless images and assembles them into a highly-detailed, three-dimensional representation of the teeth. The digital impressions process is fast, comfortable, and precise.
We’re the only dental practice in the Falls City area that has a cone beam CT scanner. This advanced device allows us to take 3D, panoramic views of your entire facial structure. It allows us to examine dentition, the location of your sinuses and nerves, and both of your jawbones, making our treatment planning and diagnoses more accurate and precise than ever. The image only takes about 30 seconds to take, and you won’t need to sit in an uncomfortable position.
