Digit-doc Iris Intra-Oral Camera
Stampien Dental uses a very small intra-oral camera that enlarges the inside of the teeth to more than 40 times their actual size, allowing our dentists to find the beginnings of tooth decay or periodontal disease and allowing our patients to see what the dentist is seeing. Images from the intra-oral camera can be digitally stored and retrieved to track the progress of treatments. A disposable camera cover is used for each intra-oral camera examination.
Each year, over 30,000 Americans contract oral cancer. Early detection of cancer and other oral mucosal conditions is critical. The FDA approved VELscope® Oral Assessment System is an award-winning device used by our dentists to help diagnose cancer in its earliest stages, and to discover other oral mucosal abnormalities such as salivary gland tumors, inflammation, and infections.
Dexis Digital Radiography
The Dexis Digital X-ray system reduces your exposure to radiation and provides a faster, more effective screening tool. Our dentists can look at the image on a computer screen in a matter of seconds, and manipulate and enlarge that picture for a better view of the inside of your mouth. This results in a faster and more accurate diagnosis.
Oral health is a team effort and YOU play a critical role!
In addition to proper brushing and flossing, it’s important to visit your dentist regularly. Don’t wait until your teeth or mouth hurt. According to the American Dental Association, too many people mistakenly believe that they need to see a dentist only if they are in pain or think something is wrong, but they’re missing the bigger picture. The American Dental Association recommends a “well-dental visit” every six months. Let us keep you and your family healthy.
Keeping periodontal disease in check is very important. Current research suggests that periodontal disease may play a role in the development of heart disease, diabetes and diseases such as stroke and pneumonia. Stay healthy! Practice good oral hygiene, eat a balanced diet, and schedule regular dental visits to help reduce your risk of developing periodontal disease.
