When you seek care at our office, you are assured that Dr. Cunningham and staff utilize the latest in technology to enhance the quality of your dental care.
Dr. Cunningham chooses carefully which and when radiographs are taken. We use the highest quality digital sensors to check for cavities between your teeth or any abnormalities below your gum line.
At Applewood Dental, we are proud to have an entirely digital office. With digital imaging, exposure time is 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs, resulting in 1/6th the radiation exposure of a traditional x-ray. In addition, it also provides a much clearer picture that allows us to diagnose problems much earlier and to treat them more conservatively.
We use a miniature digital camera to take photographs of any teeth or gum issues that appear problematic. We do this to allow you, the patient, to see exactly what the doctor and hygienist are seeing. We project these images on a large monitor in front of your dental chair where we can review your x-rays and photos with you.
Digital imaging enables our practice to save your images to your permanent, digital treatment record. These images can be printed or emailed to you, other specialists, your lab, or insurance companies.
