At Meadowbrook Family Dental in Elk Grove, CA, we stay up-to-date with the latest dental technology to offer our patients only the best. We use proven methods that produce accurate results, while saving our patients time in the office. Our advanced technology provides comfortable dental care and helps our team diagnose and plan the best treatment for your smile.
Cone Beam CT 3D Imaging
Cone Beam CT 3D Imaging allows us to view clear images of your entire smile. From this information, we can correctly diagnose and treat each patient according to their needs. As most imaging is 2D, 3D imaging gives us more information concerning your smile and also aids in the placement of dental implants.
Digital Implant Planning
Virtual implant planning allows us to avoid mistakes and accurately plan for custom implants that will fit your smile. With digital planning software, we can accurately plan the right angle for the implant placement, the correct implant size and view vital structures that will play a role in placing your dental implant.
iTero Intraoral Scanner
The iTero Digital Scanner provides several benefits for our patients. An accurate digital scan of a patient’s teeth and bite helps us fit custom dental crowns, plan for custom Invisalign aligners to be created and provide a more accurate plan for Invisalign treatment. Digital impressions can be taken, saving our patients from messy traditional impressions. Our intraoral scanner also allows us to show our patients a digital plan for their teeth alignment.
With 3D printing, we can create custom dental appliances in our office including night guards and implant surgical guides. 3D printing saves our patients and staff time, provides a faster turnaround time and allows for a better overall experience when receiving customized treatment.
Nomad 2 & Digital X-Rays
In our office, we have handheld x-ray units that emit low radiation. This allows for a safer and quicker x-ray experience. Our x-ray units are extremely accurate and convenient. Images can be seen on a screen to give our team and our patients a better understanding when diagnosing and treating dental problems and when planning for treatment.
For correcting soft tissue lining, the Diode Laser provides gentle and precise treatment. The Diode Laser is quiet and effective, giving our patients an overall pleasant experience when treating a variety of dental conditions.
An intraoral camera looks a lot like an oversized pen. Easily navigating around your teeth and gums, it allows your dentist to get a closer, more accurate look at your smile. This camera can reveal small imperfections and dental issues such as cracks in the teeth. An intraoral camera allows us to catch problems early and address them right away.
