Advanced dental technology
Technology is advancing at the speed of light. One minute you’ve got the hottest new smart phone on the market, the next it’s yesterday’s trash. It can make it incredibly difficult to keep up. At Fuquay Family Dentistry, you can rest assured you’re getting the most advanced dental technology on the market. We make continuing education and investment in new technology our top priority, to bring our patients the most advanced treatment methods in dentistry, for dental solutions that last a lifetime.
3D imaging technology allows us to visualize and utilize the “big picture” of your oral health better than ever before. With 3D imaging, we can gain deeper insight into the state of your oral health and create a high resolution virtual model of your entire oral/facial structure. This allows us to better treatment plan and create models for restorations and oral appliances with high precision accuracy.
Digital x-ray technology is one of our most frequently utilized forms of advanced technology that our patients really love. Digital x-rays are safer than traditional x-rays because they use less radiation. They are also faster and more convenient because they can be taken in a matter of seconds from the dental chair, and viewed on the screen almost instantly.
Intra oral camera
Before intra oral camera technology, the only way we could get a good look at the surfaces inside your mouth was with the magic of sight, and the help of a tiny mirror. Thankfully, intra oral cameras can produce high quality, high resolution images of the inside of your mouth to help us gain a better understanding of what’s going on. This helps us to better detect things like gum disease, tooth decay, and oral cancer.
CEREC milling machine
Our CEREC machine is one of our and our patients’ favorite pieces of technology in our office. The CEREC machine is our same day dentistry genie that allows us to take impressions, fabricate, and place restorations like porcelain crowns in a single appointment! A process that used to require hours in the dental chair, a temporary restoration period, and several return visits, can now be completed in one day, so you can get back to the things that matter most.
If you have any questions about any of the technology we have here in our office, or would like to schedule an appointment with your Fuquay-Varina dentist, Dr. McCormick or Dr. Meunier at Fuquay Family Dentistry, please contact our office today at (919) 230-8388.
