The complex devices all around us — from long-range satellite links in our cars and offices to powerful computers in our hand-held gadgets — prove beyond a doubt that we live in a technology-driven world. In the field of dentistry, new technology is constantly changing the way diseases are diagnosed, routine procedures are performed, and illnesses are prevented. Although they may seem unfamiliar at first, new and improved dental technologies offer plenty of real benefits for patients. At Traverse Dental Associates, we utilize the industry leading digital x-ray sensors that have the highest resolution with low radiation exposure. We use a special intra-oral camera to capture pictures of your teeth that aid us in the education of our patients by allowing them to see what we see. With patients that suffer from TMD, Traverse Dental Associates utilizes a Joint Vibration Analysis (JVA) and Tek-Scan device to help aid in analyzing, diagnosing, and treating Joint Disease and Occlusal Disease.
