Intraoral cameras help shine some much-needed light on the inner workings of your smile and the reasons why Dr. Giron is recommending certain treatment options. We’ll start by navigating a camera-tipped wand carefully around the mouth, capturing countless images of the teeth, gums, and other oral structures. Later, these very same images will be portrayed on a monitor in the operatory, displayed in HD for crystal-clear definition so that you can see exactly what we saw during your oral examination. This way, you can feel like a fully informed partner in the treatment process!
When comparing traditional film X-rays to new digital radiography, the superior option is absolutely clear. Instead of having to rely on darkrooms and hazardous chemicals, the necessary X-rays will be ready in mere seconds – no development required. Our team can magnify and color-code the results on our computer system to aid patient understanding. Better yet, any necessary radiation exposure is minimized to the smallest degree possible for the sake of patient safety.
Digital Impression System
Thankfully, the days of messy putty impressions have been left safely in the past here in Albuquerque. Instead, Dr. Giron utilizes digital impression technology, which creates comprehensive, accurate models of your dental structure through a series of no-contact scans. Not only is this approach much quicker and more comfortable for the patient, but the results are also more accurate on average, leading to more successful, personalized dental restorations and a minimal chance of time-consuming retakes.
Do you regularly wake up with a lingering headache or aching jaw? These chronic conditions can indicate the presence of a more serious oral health problem known as TMJ disorder, or simply TMD. The temporomandibular joints control the movement of the jaw and facilitate essential actions like speaking and chewing food. When an injury or excessive stress negatively impacts this area of the body, debilitating discomfort can be the unfortunate result. Thankfully, Dr. Giron will screen for TMJ disorder during routine checkups and can provide revitalizing therapy options when needed, including occlusal adjustment and custom-made oral splints.
