Why Digital Dentistry?

At Carolina Smiles Family Dentistry, we cherish the idea that a “picture is worth 1,000 words.” It’s just one of the reasons why we implement advanced digital imaging technology here in our West Columbia practice.

You See What We See

Have you ever wanted to see something for yourself, to fully grasp the nature of the situation? Our high definition intraoral cameras allow you to do just that. Should our family dentist or one of our hygienists note something during your visit, we’ll capture a magnified, up-close picture to share with you.

Plus, we utilize low-radiation digital x-rays that can be enhanced on an in-room monitor, for your review. Due to their high-definition capabilities, digital x-rays make it easier to monitor the development or progress of certain conditions, including:

  • Tooth development
  • Oral anatomy
  • Development of dental caries (cavities)
  • Stages of periodontal disease or bone loss
  • Recovery of an infection

As we visit together, you can have the information at your fingertips to co-plan your oral health strategy. Don’t just take our word for it. Patient education and digital imaging allows you to make an informed decision about the future of your smile’s needs.

A Comprehensive Approach to Dentistry

Our West Columbia dentist won’t pressure you to get dental treatment that you don’t want or need. Instead, we’ll share our findings with you and closely monitor situations that may not require immediate treatment. With preventive techniques including fluoride treatments, prophylactic cleanings, and digital technology, we can intervene if and when appropriate.
