Technology

At Summer Dental, in the Summerlin area of Las Vegas, we are always striving to give our patients the best dental care possible, and advanced technology is an important part of fulfilling that mission.

Your Las Vegas dentist invests in innovative dental technology, and by doing so, he invests in your oral health and comfort. Updated technology promotes more informed decision-making, more accurate procedures, and satisfying results.

Digital X-Rays in Summerlin

Digital x-rays are an integral part of your oral health care, because they allow your dentist to see areas inside the oral cavity that cannot be seen by the naked eye. Digital x-rays provide an advanced way to see inside the mouth and diagnose potential problems, while protecting the patient from harmful radiation. Some of the benefits of digital x-rays versus traditional x-rays include:

  • Time-saving (briefer and fewer dental appointments)
  • Better images and more accurate diagnoses and treatments
  • Easy transfer (you will see the images instantly, and they can be easily sent on to insurance companies or other offices)

Panorex

A panorex is a panoramic x-ray that provides a full view of the upper and lower jaws, the teeth, the temporomandibular joints, and the sinuses. We need this information to catch tumors and cysts, extra teeth, and other hard-to-see conditions.

Intraoral Imaging

We use a small, handheld video device called an intraoral camera to take actual photos of your teeth up to 25 times magnification. This device is comfortable for the patient, and can immediately project the images onto a screen for your review. Our intraoral camera helps your dentist detect plaque deposits, decay, worn down teeth, or broken fillings.

Trios 3-Shape Scanner

Are you tired of those messy, gooey impressions? We utilize the Trios 3-Shape Scanner so we can treat our patients to impressions of the future. Whether you need veneers or dental crowns, the Trios 3-Shape Scanner is a comfortable way to get the most accurate restoration possible. The scanner takes images of the teeth and allows you to see a 3D replica of your mouth on a computer screen. This data is used to design the flawless dental restorations that you need.

Lasers

Laser therapy allows patients to enjoy a painless dental treatment experience. Some of the benefits of laser therapy include:

  • Reduced need for anesthesia because of the high comfort level of any laser procedure
  • Fast and precise procedures
  • Decreased chance of bacterial infection because laser treatments are hygienic and accurate
  • Reduced bleeding and healing time

We offer advanced technology to give you the best dental experience you have ever had. For restorative, cosmetic, or general dentistry, don’t hesitate to call us at Summer Dental in the Summerlin area of Las Vegas.
