Cone Beam CT Scanner
Our office in Plainfield, IL is one of the few dental offices with an on-site 3D Cone Beam CT Scanner! This revolutionary technology provides three-dimensional views that allow your doctor to thoroughly assess and plan each patient prior to any procedure. Unlike a traditional CT Scanner, this 3D system utilizes Cone Beam Technology and provides us with precise, crystal-clear images. The information that the scan offers is invaluable during the assessment and planning phases of dental implants and many other surgeries. We are able to accurately visualize and prepare for issues such as bone quality and the location of sinuses, nerves, and other vital anatomical landmarks. By utilizing this scan prior to surgery, we greatly improve our patients’ experience and deliver a positive treatment outcome.
Proud Owners of an iTero® Element™ Intraoral Scanner
The iTero Element Scanner is a state-of-the-art digital impression system that eliminates the need for messy putty in your mouth. With our iTero Element Scanner, we can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty based impressions, but it’s faster and can offer a clinical endpoint.
Isolite® SystemHappy patients spend less time in the chair with more comfort, so we use the Isolite® System. This system has a soft and flexible mouthpiece to shield your tongue and cheek during procedures, as well as a light that illuminates your mouth from the inside, reducing shadows and making treatments more efficient. The Isolite even has a place for you to rest your jaw, and its revolutionary technology eliminates the need for cotton rolls and rinse breaks. All because your comfort is paramount!
Digital x-rays are the newest technology used in dentistry to take and archive dental x-rays. Digital x-rays significantly reduces the amount of radiation as compared to traditional dental x-rays. This technique captures a digital picture of teeth with their supporting bone structures and stores the images on a computer in our dental office in Plainfield, IL. You and your doctor will be able to instantly view your x-rays and enlarge the image to aid in the identification of dental problems and to gauge your dental health. Dr. Justin Ahoyt will use this information to create an individualized treatment plan.
Taking pictures of the teeth and supporting tissue with a small video camera about the size of a pen is a wonderful addition to dentistry today. The intra-oral camera creates digital images that can be stored on a computer at Ahoyt Family Dental in Plainfield, IL. The images are shared with our patients so they can join with us in the "co-diagnosis" of problems with their dental health. We can show you how others view your smile and which dental fillings are broken or discolored. We look forward to showing you a dental tour of your mouth in the privacy of your treatment room.
