Dental Technology – Aurora, IL

Using The Latest Technology The Dental World Offers

At Grand Dental - Aurora, our goal is to make each of your treatments fast, convenient, precise, and comfortable. That’s why we utilize the latest dental technology in our field. By stocking our office with helpful instruments like intraoral cameras and our digital X-ray system, we’re able to spot even the smallest problems in your mouth, giving us the ability to treat them before they’ve caused your teeth and gums any harm. To learn more about some of these handy gadgets, take a look below.

Intraoral Camera

Intraoral Camera

Our intraoral camera is a small, handheld device that we can place in your mouth to get a magnified view of your teeth and gums. It’s attached to a display monitor that allows us to show you what we’re looking at in real-time, so you know exactly what’s going on in your mouth. With the clear, enlarged view, we’re able to see smaller problems that may be invisible to the naked eye.

Digital X-Rays

Digital x-rays

In the past, dental practices would utilize film X-rays to capture images of the hidden area that lies below the gums. This method used harmful chemicals for the environment as well as radiation that’s sent through the body to capture the image. With our digital X-rays, the images we capture are clearer, allowing us to see more, and the system minimizes radiation exposure by up to 90 percent! Plus, we don’t have to develop the film, making your visit shorter and eliminating the need for harmful chemicals during the process.

CT/Cone Beam Scanner

Cone Beam Scanner

Our CT/Cone Beam Scanner is a special type of X-ray equipment that allows us to captured 3D images of your teeth, oral tissues, nerve pathways, and bone in a complete, panoramic view. When digital X-rays aren’t enough, like when we’re planning a dental implant placement surgery, we’ll turn to this handy instrument to provide us with necessary details about your facial structure to create a precise treatment plan. It helps us minimize the risk of complications in a variety of treatments by providing us with a detailed blueprint of your mouth and face.

Soft Tissue Laser

Soft tissue laser

If you’re getting gum recontouring, your child is receiving a frenectomy, or you require gum disease therapy, you’ll likely be introduced to our soft tissue laser. It’s a handheld device that emits a precise beam of light that allows us to etch-away severely infected or overgrown oral tissue without using a scalpel or sutures. As we remove the tissue, the laser will automatically cauterize the area, reducing the risk of infection, virtually eliminating bleeding, and drastically minimizing recovery times.
