Digital Dentistry in Moline, IL
At LJ Dentistry, we offer the highest quality dental restorations in order to provide beautiful aesthetics and optimum function to our patients. Using the latest state-of-the-art technology allows us to diagnose treatment needs and perform restorative procedures in a way that is more comfortable, effective, and efficient for patients.
Dr. Jackson and Dr. Lemon choose to invest in both cutting-edge equipment and countless hours of continuing education so you can rest assured that the restoration you receive is one that you can trust and rely on.
Intraoral pictures give you and your doctor a closer look at the current state of your teeth, while digital x-rays provide a more comprehensive look at what’s going on internally. Digital impressions streamline the restoration process, making preparation more comfortable for patients and the turnaround time much faster.
Besides exposure to 80% less radiation than traditional x-rays, digital x-rays offer a number of other benefits to both doctors and patients such as:
- No chemicals are needed for development, which makes them safer for the environment.
- Images are available immediately, so our doctors can review your x-rays with you during your appointment.
- Images are much clearer and easier to read and interpret.
- Images can easily be shared with other doctors if necessary.
X-rays are an important part of the diagnosis process because they let Dr. Jackson and Dr. Lemon see things that may not be detected through just an examination. This means that issues such as tooth decay can be detected much earlier, ensuring that you receive a more conservative and less invasive treatment.
We understand that your time is valuable, and we’re proud to offer CAD/CAM technology, which uses digital impressions to streamline the design process of your restoration. This also means that you will no longer have to endure the messy impressions and molds of the past. Computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) also fabricates porcelain crowns and other restorations for patients in just hours instead of weeks.
Intraoral cameras take detailed pictures inside your mouth. Because these are digital images, we’re able to see the pictures immediately, and we like to share these pictures with you at your initial visit. If you have teeth in need of repair, intraoral pictures allow you to understand which restorations you may need and why you need them because you’ll be able to see your teeth in their current state.
At LJ Dentistry, Dr. Jackson and Dr. Lemon use advanced technology to help them diagnose accurately, streamline the restoration process, and offer you the quality care that you deserve. We know you’ll appreciate the difference that digital dentistry makes when you visit our office, and we’re proud to offer a level of care that is not found in most practices.
