What Types of Dental Technology Do We Use?
In addition to a modern, paperless environment, Plymouth Dental Group offers the latest innovative dental technology, including:
Digital X-Rays: Our low-radiation digital x-ray system uses a special sensor to produce high-quality images of your teeth and jaw, which enhance our diagnostic capabilities.
Intraoral Camera: With this pen-like device, we can take high-definition color pictures of areas in your mouth that may be difficult to see and can provide you with a better understanding of your oral health.
3D Oral Imaging: This advanced imaging system generates a three-dimensional view of your teeth, bone, nerves, and other oral structures during the diagnostic and treatment phases of care.
DIAGNOdent Laser Cavity Detection: We use this small laser device to identify very early signs of tooth decay, often before these areas are visible to the naked eye or evident on dental x-rays.
Laser Dentistry: The use of lasers in our practice affords greater precision, faster healing, and a less invasive approach in a number of dental procedures.
Air Abrasion: A conservative approach to restorative care, air abrasion combines air and a special powder to gently treat small dental cavities without the need for drills, shots, or discomfort.

What Are the Benefits of modern technology?
Using the latest in dental technology affords a number of significant benefits to patients of all ages. Though the various types of technology we use all carry their own unique sets of benefits, in general, these advancements offer a more conservative approach to care and allow for greater precision in diagnosing and treating dental conditions. Dental technology, particularly the use of laser dentistry and air abrasion techniques, may minimize the need for incisions, sutures, and local aesthetics — increasing overall patient comfort and reducing downtime following certain procedures. With these modern dental techniques, we can commonly perform treatments more quickly and accurately, reducing a patient's time spent in the dental chair and making the entire process more convenient.
What Can You Expect During Your Visit?
State-of-the-art dental technology may be used to diagnose dental conditions, such as cavities (tooth decay) and jawbone loss (due to gum disease), and to gently treat a wide range of oral health needs. Before using any type of technology, our team will talk with you about the service or procedure and give you an idea of what to expect. Certain technologies may be performed periodically, such as digital x-rays and laser cavity detection, or as needed to carry out dental treatment. Our caring dentists and team are always available to answer any questions you have along the way. Thanks to the interactive nature of many technological advancements, you and your family can become more involved in your care and better informed to make decisions about your oral health.
Will Dental Insurance Cover my Procedure?
Many dental insurance plans offer coverage for the use of dental technology in dental care. Before performing any service, our business team will carefully review your insurance plan and talk with you about any potential personal costs. Plymouth Dental Group accepts low-interest medical financing and a number of other easy payment options to help make your family's dental care even more convenient.
