Sutter Terrace Dental Group has always been on the leading edge of technology. We built a state of the art facility and continually re-evaluate and improve our office in order to provide our patients with the highest quality dental care in the most comfortable setting.
Sutter Terrace Dental Group made a significant investment in bringing technology into the treatment room. By installing digital x-ray software, computers in the treatment room and HD monitors our patients can participate in their dental care. The benefits of digital images are:
- significantly reduced radiation exposure for the patient (70% less)
- no waiting time to view images
- shorter appointments
- improved patient education
- a better understanding of dental needs and options
The quality of the images, the ability to enhance, magnify or compare are just a few of the many features and tools available using digital imaging.
Extra-oral & Intra-oral photographs
Extra-oral photographs in dentistry are used to capture a patient’s image for easy recognition or identification. They can also be used to record before and after photos of aesthetic smile design. We submit them with lab cases and insurance claims or to document a facial injury. The uses and benefits are endless.
As a patient you can better participate in treatment planning decisions when supported with digital images and photographs. A picture is worth a thousand words… in dentistry it truly is.
