Choosing a dental office that values technology is the best way to ensure you and your loved ones receive the ultimate high-tech, modern-day dental care. And today, advanced technology makes dentistry more comfortable and efficient than ever before. Fox Creek Family Dental stays attuned to the latest advances in dentistry, regularly updating our offices with the equipment necessary to provide our patients with truly world-class, high-tech dentistry.
Do you want to see inside your mouth when we discuss your oral health and treatment options? You don’t have to use mirrors any longer. Our offices are equipped with intra-oral cameras, which project images to a screen in our exam rooms. The camera allows you to see exactly what we are talking about when looking at your teeth and soft tissues with little hassle.
One way in which our office has advanced is through the use of a cone-beam 3D x-ray system. This type of x-ray provides us with a full 360 view of your teeth and jaws in a matter of seconds. The x-rays are sent to our computer, where staff can then rotate and inspect them in more detail than traditional x-rays.
Do you dislike traditional or full x-rays? Then we have the technology for you. At Fox Creek Family Dental, we utilize the digital x-ray iTero system, which consists of an x-ray camera at the end of a small handheld tool. This is placed in the mouth and captures the image of a particular spot, allowing our staff to get a close and detailed x-ray of a particular tooth or section of soft tissue.
A digital scanner is a tool that allows us to avoid making traditional impressions of the teeth. This simple handheld tool takes hundreds of pictures of your teeth as we move it inside your mouth. These images are sent to our computer, which creates a complete 3D model of your smile. We can use this model to prepare appliances like crowns without forcing you to bite in uncomfortable resin and putty.
One of the most advanced technologies we currently offer is the use of a soft tissue laser to treat problems related to the gums and other tissues in the mouth. The laser is used to ablate and remove tissues without requiring surgery. Treatments completed with this technology have rapid healing times and few side effects, making it a valuable tool in restorative care.
We proudly serve the areas of Longmont, Loveland, Westminster, Broomfield & Thornton.
