Like many areas of the scientific and medical field, technology is always introducing new and more advanced ways to provide care and inform us of new information. Dr. Badawy is a strong advocate for continuing education and incorporating technology that improves patients’ care into the dental office. When you visit, you’ll quickly learn how he accomplishes this during your routine exams, cleanings and other forms of dental treatment. To learn more about these devices, take a moment to read below or contact our dental office to see them in-person!
What if you had a front-row seat to your mouth, much like how your dentist does? Do you need visual proof that your tooth is in need of a filling or crown? The Mouthwatch Intraoral camera does exactly that! This handheld device shows the inside of your mouth and your many oral structures in real-time, keeping you in the loop during your exam. It also takes pictures of your mouth so Dr. Badawy can refer to them later when determining the best treatment.
When it comes to developing X-ray images, we’ve come a long way from the darkrooms of the past. We’ve even gotten further than the traditional X-ray machines, which are now considered inefficient and carry a higher risk of radiation exposure. With digital X-rays, we can capture detailed images of your oral structures quickly and more safely than ever before. Furthermore, digital X-rays reduce radiation by up to 80% compared to traditional machines, ensuring that we’re safely collecting the information we need to provide accurate diagnoses.
Keeping a clean dental office environment is among the highest priorities at Chittenango Family Dental. While that includes keeping obvious areas of the dental office clean, such as the dental chair, it also means choosing a system with the best standards in sterilization of dental tools. We utilize the Steri-Center device to ensure the highest compliance and sterility of all dental instruments. With this technology, we can dramatically reduce the risk of spreading bacteria or infections in our dental office. We believe that this device is the most capable of ensuring our patients the highest levels of health and safety possible.
