Our Family Dental Practice in Livonia Uses Advanced Technology
When you seek care at our office, you are assured that Dr. DeCapite and his staff utilize the latest in technology to enhance the quality and fit for your dental care.
We use state of the art fiberoptic handpieces and magnification LED loupes for the most precise aspects of restorative procedures. This results in extraordinarily precise interfaces between your tooth and your new restoration (crown, veneer, or filling). This will bring more comfort to you as well. With a more precise tool, there is less vibration and less noise.
Digital Imaging / Digital X-Rays for Less Radiation and Accurate DiagnosisDr. DeCapite chooses carefully which and when dental images are taken to minimize exposure to radiation and keep costs low. Dr. DeCapite also utilizes digital imaging technologies in our Livonia office. With digital imaging, exposure time is up to 50 percent less when compared to traditional xrays, resulting in up to 90% less radiation.
Accurate and precise digital imaging enables the dentist to see far beyond what the eye can see. This is important for detecting cavities between the teeth, determining bone health and deterioration, examining the roots and nerves of teeth, locating any cysts or tumors, and evaluating damage from trauma. Good dental imaging using the best available methods is thus an essential aid in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health.
Digital dental imaging offers a high degree of precision, since the image is viewed on a computer monitor and can be easily magnified to reveal any information that is normally hard to see. Digital images are also stored very efficiently. They are readily available for office visits or for quick and easy transfer to dental specialists and insurance companies.
Intraoral Camera for Close-Up Detailed ImagesDr. DeCapite utilizes intraoral camera technology that helps him to capture very detailed close-up images of individual teeth, fillings, crowns, and other small areas of the mouth. This enhances the dentist’s ability to diagnose problems and also enhances patient’s understanding of the diagnosis. This can also result in faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you!
The digital images created by intra oral cameras can be duplicated for you, other specialists, and for dental labs or insurance companies. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you!
Intra oral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These images can be printed for you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.
