We strive to ensure your journey with us, from diagnosis to treatment, is as smooth and efficient as possible!

Digital Dental X-Rays

Digital x-rays capture instant, high-resolution images using digital sensors rather than traditional photographic x-ray film, which takes some time to process. We can enlarge the intricate images of your teeth, gum, and other oral structures and zoom in on specific areas of concern to visualize them with exceptional clarity and detail.

Digital dental x-rays are highly safe, with radiation levels up to 90 percent lower than the already low radiation exposure of traditional dental x-rays. To put things in perspective, a person's daily environmental exposure to radiation is about 0.01 mSv, far more than 0.004 mSv, the amount of radiation produced by a set of four bitewing x-rays!

Panoramic X-rays

Imagine if you could get a complete 360-degree view of your entire mouth in one single image. That's what panoramic x-rays do! Unlike traditional x-rays that focus on specific sections, panoramic x-rays provide an overall view of your teeth, upper and lower jaws, surrounding structures, and tissues.

Panoramic x-rays help us uncover issues like impacted wisdom teeth, advanced periodontal disease, tooth fractures, cysts, and infections. Because they capture such an expansive view of your mouth, panoramic x-rays can also pick up problems with the jawbone or sinuses. The information they provide helps us plan treatments more precisely and reduce the need for multiple appointments.

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) 3D Imaging

Our cutting-edge CBCT technology captures high-resolution 3D images of your mouth, allowing us to visualize your dental structures from every angle. It enables us to evaluate your teeth, sinus, bone, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and other oral structures with incredible detail and clarity, whether we're looking at your entire mouth or specific areas of concern.

CBCT scans offer superior diagnostic precision, reducing the need for invasive procedures and shortening treatment times. The advanced, non-invasive imaging technique is invaluable when planning complex dental treatments like root canal therapy or dental implant placement, ensuring better outcomes for our valued patients.

3D Dental Scanning

Mel Mel Dental is pleased to offer intraoral scanning or 3D dental imaging to capture impressions of your teeth without the need for uncomfortable, gooey impressions. The small, wand-shaped device captures thousands of images of every surface of every tooth, immediately converting them into a 3D digital model that we can visualize on a computer screen.

3D dental scanning provides precise digital impressions of your teeth, providing blueprints for creating dental crowns, bridges, mouthguards, Invisalign aligners, dental implant restorations, and so much more! The accuracy of intraoral scanning is far superior to traditional dental impressions, ensuring your restorations and oral appliances provide the best fit, comfort, and function.
