Digital Imagery

Electronic medical records and digital imagery allow English Rows Dental Group to offer a completely paperless dental experience for our patients. Through the aid of technology and computers, our office maintains a standardized record system of records and digital imagery. Should you need to obtain a copy of your records or images, our office can expedite your file in a secure and sustainable process virtually wherever you desire.

Digital Imagery allows us to maintain your dental records electronically and cuts down the unnecessary paperwork used with traditional paper charting. Traditional Images and paper charting are difficult to keep standardized from doctor to hygienist to assistant. Digital charting standardizes the charting process, so it is clear, easy to understand, and enables us to provide the most accurate and precise care to our patients. When needed, this method also allows us to quickly and securely share information with your other health care providers.

What is being digitized:

Digital X-rays - Woman Smiling

Which is a focused beam of x-ray particles passed through bone which produce an image on special film, showing the structure through which, it passed. This provides the familiar black and white images doctors and dentists use to diagnose problems and disease. Without an x-ray of the whole tooth and supporting bone and gum tissues, there would be no way to detect infection or pathology that requires attention. At English Rows Dental we use an all-digital system which allows us to take x-rays using up to 90% less radiation than conventional film x-rays and eliminate the chemicals needed for traditional film. Using this technology, we can take an image of your mouth by using a small sensor which records the image of your teeth and sends it to a computer. The result is a highly detailed image of your mouth that can easily be enhanced to better diagnose dental concerns and determine the very best treatment for each case.

Which allows us to take a digital picture of you and use our imaging system to predict how a particular treatment or cosmetic procedure would change the appearance of your teeth. This software is beneficial for patients who are considering cosmetic procedures but are not sure if they’re ready for dramatic changes. Digital imaging also allows us to document your dental case and procedures very well. We take digital images of your face, teeth and smile to provide us with a permanent dental record and to provide a visual documentation of treatment.

Traditional impressions in any situation is uncomfortable and unreliable. At English Row Dental you can count on us to make every experience painless and effective. Using a digital impression, makes each scan unbelievably accurate and detailed impression of your teeth and gums.  Once the scan is completed, we will then have a 3D model so crowns, bridges, implants, clear aligners and retainers. For more details please visit our CariVu page.

Which are small cameras about the size of a pen that help clearly see the condition of your teeth and gums. With this advanced technology we can zoom in on small diseased areas, cracks, chips and worn metal fillings with extreme precision. Meaning no more goop for taking impressions! The full-color images taken with the intraoral camera are sent to a computer screen so we can clearly see and diagnose dental problems much earlier than with traditional dental technology. Because images are displayed on our screens, patients will also be able to see areas being worked on and are able to gain a better understanding of dental procedures being performed.

I can smile with complete confidence! I can’t now imagine ever being concerned about appearing in photos. It’s just been a new lease of life. Thank you.
