Today we have a wealth of choices when it comes to the technology we choose for our dental practice. The most important consideration for us is the benefit that it will provide to our patients. Will it make your treatment safer, easier, and more efficient? These are questions we ask ourselves before we decide to invest in any type of technology.
We believe that our state-of-the-art technology serves all your needs, and you'll notice the benefits every time you visit!
Digital x-rays are a type of dental imaging that allows us to store and send images directly to a computer. We can view the digitally perfect images and share them with you on a monitor so you can see exactly what we see. Additionally, digital x-rays offer several other advantages over traditional film x-rays. The software lets us enlarge the image, which helps Dr. Sung see even the tiniest changes, which wouldn't be seen during a visual oral exam. Our wide screen monitor makes it easy for us to share the images with you so you can better understand the need for treatment.
Digital x-rays are safer for you because they significantly reduce your exposure to radiation. State-of-the-art digital images are also better for the environment since we don’t have to worry about safely disposing of potentially hazardous materials used with traditional film x-rays. Digital images can also easily be sent electronically to a specialist as needed.
This high-resolution camera is a valuable addition to the technology we offer at the office of Won Sung, DDS. Using an intraoral camera, we can show you exactly what we see as we examine your teeth. The visual display helps you understand the nature of the problem and why treatment is necessary. Intraoral cameras give our team a clear view of your teeth, which makes treatment more efficient, meaning you spend less time in the dental chair.
Vibraject Syringe Attachment
Vibraject is used to give a local anesthetic. This simple and safe device vibrates and takes away the sensation of a needle going in. Many patients don't even realize they have had an injection. All they remember is buzzing sound. It works because the light pressure of a Vibraject injection is carried rapidly to the brain on thicker, more insulated nerve tissues while the needle-prick travels on thinner nerve tissue, arriving too late for the brain to register the sensation.
