Dental X-Rays

Picture-perfect precision: Illuminate your oral health with our state-of-the-art dental x-rays!


Innovative X-Ray Technology is Essential to Good Dentistry.

In our practice, we have always considered it necessary to learn and use new, more innovative technologies as they become available to the dental industry. Coupled with the skills we have accumulated over the years, we can better serve our patients in all their treatment needs.

This professional willingness should always be uppermost in your search for a reliable dentist. These new technologies enable us to help you and your family maintain amazing smiles. The digital x-ray technology we are now using is vital for planning the solutions that best suit your particular dental issues.


What Are Some of The Benefits of Digital X-Ray Technology?

  • It is completely eco-friendly
  • It wastes no paper
  • It avoids the use of lead film inserts
  • It uses absolutely zero chemicals
  • It exposes our patients to lower radiation amounts

These High-Definition Digital X-Rays enable us, as dental professionals, to see with an extremely high degree of clarity, the very depths of your gums and teeth.

This ability enables us to detect dental problems in their earliest stages of development and thus prevent further progression and see details that were otherwise invisible to our naked eyes.

An even more significant benefit to our patients is that it allows them to view their x-rays on the computer screen right along with us.

Panoramic Digital X-Rays

When it becomes necessary to view and thoroughly examine a combination of different dental elements with one of our patients, we can now use our state-of-the-art 3-D scan technology and panoramic digital x-rays. These scanning x-rays can examine complete and detailed 3-D views of a patient’s mouth and all surrounding oral structures.

Three-D Scan Technology – What Are These Additional Benefits?

Since they become exposed through this innovative technology, this allows us to take a detailed look at a patient’s temporomandibular jaw joint and their entire nasal area, sinus cavities, and all of the jaw. We can detect any missing teeth, cysts, tumors, bone abnormalities, or impacted teeth by getting a close-up view of these additional elements.

This three-D scan, digital x-ray technology has also become a critical tool for us in the planning and design of dental implant procedures.

This necessary, innovative technology can be of benefit to you or your family, give us a call to schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience.

Sedation Dentistry

For your convenience, we offer these three types of comfort and sedation dentistry:

Nitrous Oxide

This “laughing gas,” as most people know it, is used for simple fillings or routine cleaning treatments and is the most common form of sedation. Thanks to this simple form of sedation, your entire dental treatment can be a relaxing experience.

Sedation By IV

During IV Sedation, the patient’s vital signs are monitored throughout the entirety of the procedure, as the sedation is administered via IV. The patient will have been sleeping during the entire process, in this case, and will awaken only after the procedure.

Suppose a patient must return to school or work after completing the procedure. In that case, it will be especially beneficial for them to understand their need for sufficient recovery time before they leave.

Conscience Oral Sedation

We currently offer oral sedation for our patients who wish to remain conscience and yet come to us with gagging problems or a higher than average amount of fear and anxiety. Throughout the entire procedure, we closely monitor their vital signs once giving a combination of oral medications.

Once taking the oral medication we provide, the patient becomes highly relaxed and drowsy, and after their appointment, most patients remember nothing of the fear or anxiety they may have thought to experience without.

You will not be put to sleep with oral sedation, and during the entire procedure, you will be able to respond to Dr. Melancon and his team.
