Digital X-Rays

X-rays of full smile

At Soldotna Dental Arts, we’ve left traditional film X-rays safely in the past. Digital radiography has transformed this process for the better in various ways, making it much easier and safer for our team to see underneath the surface of a patient’s smile. For instance, there are no more darkrooms or hazardous chemicals — the high-resolution images are captured and then immediately made available for viewing without delay. Radiation exposure is also dramatically reduced by up to 80%, and the digital nature of the files is much better for the environment.

CT / Cone Beam Scanner

While digital X-rays are a highly effective diagnostic tool, their scope can be somewhat limited in certain situations, such as when planning advanced surgical treatment like dental implant placement or root canal therapy. That’s why Dr. O’Donoghue also regularly utilizes state-of-the-art Cone Beam technology for a truly comprehensive look. This system will create a three-dimensional, exhaustively detailed model of the patient’s teeth, jaw, and related bone structure, even mapping out small details like the locations of facial nerves. This high-resolution aid gives our team the information we need to carry out services confidently and with unparalleled success.

Soft Tissue Laser

When it comes to treating something as delicate as gum tissue, our team wants to ensure that our approach is comfortable for patients while still being effective and revitalizing. That’s why we use a revolutionary soft tissue laser for periodontal services like gum disease therapy and aesthetic gum recontouring. The laser’s focused beam can precisely alter tissue with minimal post-operative symptoms and virtually no pain — in fact, many patients don’t even require local anesthesia during their treatment.

Cavity Detection System

The development of cavities is a gradual process, and one that our team strives to catch and halt in the earliest stages possible. To accomplish this, we regularly use DIAGNOdent and CariVu technology. Both of these modern tools help us to more effectively pinpoint areas of decay and weakened tooth enamel, even in hard-to-reach areas that would normally be inaccessible to the naked eye. As a result, more natural dental structure is successfully preserved, and smiles stay safer well into the future.
