We live in the greatest age of dentistry. Advancements and understanding are increasing at a staggering pace and staying up to date with these changes is critical to the care of our patients. Evidence continues to mount linking the state of the mouth to the overall condition of the body. Providing patients with knowledge and dental care that can change and improve their quality of life is our ultimate goal.
We constantly strive to give our patients the finest dental care possible, and we understand that our investment in advanced technology leads to better dental outcomes. We use a variety of dental technologies described below.
Digital X-raysX-rays are a primary tool for early identification of dental problems. Detecting issues with x-rays before they become problematic can save you money in the long run. At Dr. Boenning's office, we use digital x-rays, which have several advantages over traditional film-based x-rays. Digital x-rays allow us to take x-rays with much less radiation than you would receive from traditional dental x-rays.
Large on-screen x-rays increases patient understanding more clearly. The immediate observation of the images on the screen allows us to discuss your dental health quickly and accurately.
3D ScansThe method for taking an impression of your teeth is different, in that instead of taking a putty mold of your tooth, we take a digital impression of it. We use a handheld scanning camera to capture digital impressions that are then sent to our local lab for the crown to be made.
Cone Beam CT ScanDental Cone Beam CT. Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray equipment used when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. Dr. Keith A. Boenning uses this technology to produce three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan.
