Medit i700 Digital Impression Scanner
Gone are the days of goopy impression material! This intraoral scanner creates digital impressions and 3D models of the teeth. The scanner is used for many types of treatment - crowns, orthodontics, nightguards, whitening trays and more! Digital impressions are typically much more comfortable for patients, and can be taken more quickly than traditional impressions.
Dr. Hulver's favorite piece of technology! This small camera fits easily in the mouth, and allows Dr. Caitlin Hulver to capture images of details on the teeth. This is a great tool for patient communication. Anything the doctor sees, she can pull up on the screen and share with the patient. This also helps us with insurance reimbursement, as we can clearly communicate clinical situations to the insurance companies. If you come in for any variety of treatment, it's almost guaranteed Dr. Hulver will be taking a photo!
CBCT 3D X-Ray
The latest in dental imaging technology, Cone Beam Computed Tomography Systems allow us a complete 3-dimensional view of the head and neck region. Our new Vatech Green CT2 is the most cutting edge technology, producing very high quality images at a low radiation dose for the patient. Our patient's health and safety is our top priority - Dr. Hulver ensured she invested in the system that would give her all the needed information, at the lowest level of radiation on the market.
Dr. Hulver uses these 3D x-ray images to plan for various types of surgery, including extractions, dental implants, sinus lifts, and root canal therapy. They also provide extensive diagnostic information. With this technology, she is able to completely plan for any implant surgery - which allows extremely precise placement, and increased safety for the patient. It has become the gold standard in dental implant treatment. If you are in need of dental implants, be sure to see a dentist with a CBCT system!
The digital x-ray sensor we use in our office shows the images immediately on a large monitor in each treatment room - we can easily review these with each patient. No more waiting for films to develop! Digital x-rays provide Dr. Caitlin Hulver, your dentist in Fairfax, VA, with quality radiographic images of your teeth and bone. This digital technology is safer than traditional x-rays because it emits negligible radiation. Digital x-rays are also environmentally friendly because there are no developing solutions.
Digital records are a safe and convenient way to keep your dental health records in one secure data location for easy reference. This digital technology is also better for the environment because it represents a paperless filing system.
Laser dentistry is a precise and less invasive approach to dental treatments and procedures. With laser-guided dentistry, your dentist in Fairfax, VA, can precisely plan your cosmetic dentistry procedures and periodontal treatments. For you, this means less bleeding, an easier dental experience, and a faster recovery.
With rotary endodontics, your dentist provides an easier, more precise, and faster root canal therapy. Rotary endodontics rely on precision to clear away your root infection quickly and with fewer vibrations.
