Advanced Dental Services & Technology – Washington, NJ
Improving Patient Outcomes with Modern Technology
Dentists always need to be aware of the latest technology if they want to stay ahead of the game in providing their patients with the best possible care. The technological offerings at Today’s Family Dental help us make highly accurate diagnoses in less time, and they make it easier for us to communicate with our patients so that they understand exactly what needs to be done to fix the problems we’ve found.

Did you know that most of the surface area of each tooth is concealed by the gums? That means there are many places for cavities and other health issues to form where they cannot be easily found by visual examination alone. We can check the hidden parts of your smile with digital X-rays, which are much sharper and can be developed in less time than traditional X-rays. They’re safer to use as well, as they emit less radiation than traditional radiography techniques.
We’ll always take the time to explain why you need a filling, crown, or another restorative treatment. However, when you can’t see the damage for yourself, you may have trouble understanding why such treatments are even needed in the first place. Intraoral cameras let us examine the nooks and crannies of your mouth from different angles, and we can display our findings on a chairside monitor so that you have a clear visual reference for your decision-making.
