Part of your cleaning and prevention plan at Dr. Luzania’s practice in Reedley includes taking X-rays of your teeth. We use the latest X-ray technology at our office: digital radiography. Digital radiography uses an electronic sensor to capture and store digital images of your teeth.
The digital X-ray process is safer, faster and “greener” than the process of using X-ray film. Digital X-rays require only 1/10 the radiation that X-ray films require. This is significant, especially for younger patients, as radiation exposure is cumulative over our entire lifetime. Digital X-rays appear instantly on the computer screen, so Dr. Luzania and his team can detect and diagnose any problems faster than ever before. Digital X-rays don’t require any chemicals for developing, like X-ray film does, so there is no potential for pollution of our sewer systems and/or drinking water.
Dr. Luzania uses a soft tissue laser, which allows him to make precision cuts in gum tissue. Soft tissue lasers eliminate bleeding at the incision and help to reduce healing time so that you can continue on with your daily life sooner. If you have any questions about laser dentistry or any of its uses and benefits, please call our Reedley dental practice today!
Dr. Luzania in Reedley is proud to now offer scans by the Tekscan system. This amazing technology helps Dr. Luzania analyze your bite and discover what is not functioning properly and where exactly it is located. When we know where the problem is, we can begin to treat it and restore you back to oral health. Unstable bites can cause pain, tooth loss, gum disease, TMD, and headaches. We invite you to call our office today to schedule your appointment and begin improving your oral health with the help of the Tekscan.
