Our mission is to provide you with the best possible care. We believe that our expertise and procedures are more efficient due to our use of modern technology.
At Thornton Dental, we made sure to invest in the latest dental equipment that allows us to reduce time in chair as well as eliminate discomforts often associated with some dental procedures.
Our Dental Technology
Intra-oral Camera – this is a tool used to show what the dentist is looking at inside your mouth. The camera is capable of taking high quality photos of your teeth and gums. The captured images are magnified and displayed on a computer monitor for you to check.
The images are used to see your teeth in greater detail, which makes it easy to see any existing or potential issues. The images also help your dentist at Thornton Dental to explain the diagnosis and treatment, and give you better understanding about the problem areas.
Digital Intra-Oral X-rays – using high-resolution computer screens and ultra sensitive digital X-rays sensors allow us to review your X-rays much faster than the old technologies. The radiation exposure is also reduced by up to 80 to 90% of conventional methods, which is much safer and healthier for you and our team.
Digital OPG – OPG stands for Orthopantomography, a panoramic or wide view x-ray of the lower face displaying all the teeth of the lower jaw and upper jaw on a single film. The equipment demonstrates the number, position and development of all the teeth as well as those that have not yet broken through the gum line.
The Digital OPG is invaluable equipment used in the diagnosis of wisdom teeth, gum disease, implants, jawbones, TMJ, maxillary sinus, and orthodontic treatment.
Rotary Endo – also known as Rotary Endodontic file system, Rotary Endo enhances the preparation of root canal procedure. It allows complicated root canal systems to be cleaned and shaped conveniently with fewer procedural errors, and allows significantly reduced time in chair.
Dental Software and Patient Education
Thornton Dental takes pride in providing state of the art dentistry including the use of modern equipment such as an all-encompassing computer program, which we use for anything from scheduling appointments to patient information.
We create your digital file, in which we can securely store data in one place including your appointment schedule, medical history, 3D images, X-rays, and billing history. This also comes with dynamic patient education and features videos, easy-to-understand narrations, and so much more. Through this sophisticated and intelligent dental software, we can guarantee that our clients receive full understanding of their current dental health and make informed decision about the treatment available.
