Technology

At Upton & Baker DDS, we strive to bring you the very best dentistry has to offer. We work in a rapidly advancing field, so our office regularly invests in new technology to keep our practice and patients at the forefront of any technological advances that can help make your dental care more efficient, effective, and enjoyable.

Composite, Porcelain, and Ceramic Technology

Dental materials have come a long way over the years and allow our office to create fillings, crowns, bridges, and other treatments that are metal-free and incredibly lifelike. Our dentists use composite, porcelain, and other ceramic materials to create restorations that are not only extremely aesthetic but strong and durable as well.

Learn more about where we use this technology:

Professional Dental Photography

We use high-quality dental photographs for many reasons in our office—patient education, case documentation, and lab communication are some of the most important. Having access to professional dental cameras also allows us to document and scrutinize our work in high resolution, leading to better and more aesthetic outcomes for our patients.

Digital Scanning

For our patients who can’t tolerate traditional dental impressions due to their gag reflex or other conditions, our office can use a digital scanner. This technology allows us to use a small wand to take a digital scan of your entire mouth. Digital impressions are fast, easy, and comfortable! 

 

Intraoral Photos

At Upton & Baker DDS, we place a significant emphasis on educating our patients in order to help them truly understand how to stay healthy and pain-free.  To do this, we frequently use intraoral cameras to demonstrate what your teeth, gums, and mouth look like.

These photos allow us to show you exactly what we are seeing and helps our patients better understand any oral hygiene tips or treatment recommendations.

Digital Radiographs

Dentists use x-rays to detect cavities at their earliest stages, monitor the health of your gums and bones, and check for cysts, tumors, and other problems that are not visible to the naked eye. 

In order to do this in the quickest and safest way possible, our office uses advanced digital x-ray sensors which provide faster results and higher resolution images while creating much less radiation than traditional x-ray methods.
