Our Issaquah dental office is pleased to offer digital CT imaging for patients who receive dental treatment. Come and see for yourself what it's like to receive a more advanced, patient-friendly dental experience.
While the CT machine allows us to view the inner-health of your teath, bone and gums, the intraoral camera is a tremendous tool that lets you see what we see, LIVE on the screen in front of you. Although you don't have to watch, we have found most patients benefit greatly from the additional knowledge gained from seeing what the dentist is talking about. The cameras are small, you won't even know we're using them.
If you haven't been to a dentist in a while, things have changed for the better! No more goop, gagging, or discomfort. In Issaquah, Sunrise Dental uses the latest in digital technology, Dr. Sidhu or any of the other doctors can take highly accurate digital impressions of your teeth. This new procedure ensures a more detailed and accurate impression from the beginning, resulting in improved treatment and a more comfortable patient experience. Digital impressions give you the ability to see your teeth instantly in 3D, improving communication during the consultation and treatment process.
Our digital impression scanner captures the structure of the teeth and gums using the latest optical technology. The scanner is a compact, hand-held wand. Once your dentist begins the scanning process, it can be stopped and started as many times as necessary.
Your mouth is scanned with a radiation-free laser, and in as little as two to three minutes, renders a digitally perfect, 3D impression of your teeth and soft tissue structures. Through digital software, you'll then be able to follow the progress of the scans including a three-dimensional model of your teeth on our computer screen. Digital impressions can be used for any restorative treatment including crowns, veneers, inlays/onlays, bridges, implants, and orthodontic treatments, including Invisalign®.
