Many different types of technology are available today, each designed to make your dental care more efficient and comfortable. At Reflections Dental Spa, we stay updated with state-of-the-art technology to bring you the very best that dentistry has to offer.
Since our goal is to do everything possible to ensure your good oral health, we use a digital panoramic x-ray technology, called Planmeca. This new x-ray system allows us to take extra-oral (outside the mouth) x-rays, making your experience much more comfortable than conventional x-rays.
This is also a great approach for children or patients with severe gagging reflex who are unable to tolerate intraoral (inside the mouth) x-rays.
We choose panoramic x-rays not only because they are more comfortable for you, but because the detailed, high-resolution images make it much easier for us to accurately diagnose problems.
