Dr. Andrew Katerakis and our dental team believe it's crucial to stay on the leading edge of advancements in dentistry. We always research the latest and best ways to improve patient care and introduce new technology into our practice when we know it will benefit our patients.
Please take a look at the technology we currently offer and don't hesitate to call us if you have questions or would like to schedule an appointment.
Taking x-rays is an essential part of providing quality dentistry that is safe and appropriate for your needs. Dr. Katerakis is pleased to offer digital x-rays that reduce radiation exposure by about 80 percent compared to film x-rays.
Low-dose digital x-rays also provide highly detailed images, so you can see what our dentist sees. Because we can easily enhance digital images, Dr. Katerakis can zoom in or out or rotate the x-ray and adjust the contrast so you can view it in greater detail.
Telling you about a cavity is one thing, but seeing is believing, and when you understand your oral health needs, you can make more confident and informed treatment decisions.
We store your x-rays securely in your patient record and can easily retrieve them to plan treatment or monitor conditions. Digital x-rays also make it easy and efficient to share your information with insurance companies and specialists as needed.
We use intraoral cameras because they are a great diagnostic tool for our dentist and provide invaluable information for our patients. When Dr. Katerakis performs your dental exam, he slowly moves the small digital camera over your teeth, and the images appear instantly on your chairside monitor.
Instead of viewing an x-ray image, you see what our dentist sees during his exam. It’s easy to follow along as he points out conditions like cavities, swollen or inflamed gums, cracked, broken, worn teeth, and old fillings.
We save intraoral images from your exam in your patient record to refer to as needed, and after treatment, we can show you the final results in detail.
When diagnosing certain dental conditions and planning treatment, it’s often necessary to view all your teeth, jaws, and surrounding structures in a single image. Panoramic x-rays show jaw joints (TMJs), sinuses and major nerves, impacted teeth, advanced gum disease, tumors, and bone abnormalities.
