In the past, vital X-rays were captured on traditional film and slowly developed in darkrooms with hazardous chemicals. Here in Hamden, our team is proud to have improved this method with state-of-the-art digital X-ray technology. Now, our patients don’t have to wait to see high-resolution images of their smile – the images are captured by a special camera and instantly transferred to our computer system. They can even be enhanced and color-coded for educational opportunities.
Digital X-rays are convenient, environmentally friendly, and safe for younger and older patients alike. The amount of radiation exposure is significantly reduced by up to 90% when compared to the traditional technology. With the help of this advanced tool, our doctors are capable of providing accurate diagnostic attention and treatment recommendations much more simply than ever before.
The Wand® STA® is the 1st computer controlled local anesthesia system. This system performs injection techniques in a more effective and comfortable way. In some instances a single tooth can be immediately anesthetized without the usual lip and tongue numbness associated with most techniques. Dental procedures can be started instantly.
