Advanced Technology

Precision Dentistry

When you seek care at our office, you are assured that Dr. Paul Whitney and his staff utilize the latest in technology to enhance the quality and fit for your dental care. Many dentists, including Dr. Paul Whitney, use air-driven “hand-pieces.” This results in extraordinarily precise interfaces between your tooth and your new restoration crown or filling and this will bring more comfort to you as well.

Digital Imaging

Dr. Paul Whitney chooses carefully which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes, enabling us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs. Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal and takes approximately half the time compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. Digital imaging allows us to store patient images and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.

Digital X-Rays

Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding a 35mm film up to the light. Digital X-rays results in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you, keeping you safe while allowing us to still glean perfect, reliable results.

Intraoral Camera

Computers and TV screens are their primary method of information processing, and at Country Club Dental, Dr. Whitney utilizes intraoral camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An intraoral camera is a very small camera – in some cases, just a few millimeters long. An intraoral camera allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth, and gums, in order for us to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, we see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. Intraoral cameras enable our practice to save your images on our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These images can be printed for you, other specialists, and dental lab or insurance companies for reference as needed.
