Intra-Oral Camera

A picture explains what words never can, especially when it comes to your teeth. Miniature LED cameras bring the details of our mouths to life in full color. Intra-oral imaging gives you a detailed view of your mouth. Words come to life when you can see what we see.

Visually transferring specific conditions in your mouth to a computer screen brings clarity simply not possible with a traditional mouth mirror. Specialized hand-held wands quickly capture the details of your teeth and gums. In fact, even small cracks that often lead to broken teeth appear vividly, just with the click of a button.

As an added benefit, dental insurance benefits frequently pay easier with the visual proof of a captured image in our records.

Digital X-Ray

Digital films with exquisite detail and dramatically reduced radiation exposure offer the ultimate in safety and diagnostic capability. Digital sensors capture detailed x-ray images with a fraction of the traditional exposure.

Technological advancements in x-ray technology provide multiple benefits, from safety to improved treatment outcomes.

VelScope

Changes in the lining of your mouth tissue call for close evaluation. VelScope technology makes a diagnosis of subtle changes possible through luminescence of your tissue. Early detection of any change is one key to optimum health.

During your visits, we’re observing many aspects of your overall health including a visual exam of all areas of your mouth. Most people are surprised at the large amount of surface area that lines the mouth: Over 30 square inches of tissue make up the oral cavity!

While oral cancer can afflict anyone, tobacco users put themselves at significantly higher risk than non-users. Chewing tobacco contains up to 3000 different chemicals, including the same compounds used in pesticides and embalming fluid. Cellular changes below the surface aren’t always detectable until they’ve advanced to a critical stage. That’s why we rely on the Velascope technology to help us examine the tissue of both users and non-users of tobacco.

Velascope is a wireless, handheld device that produces a natural tissue fluorescence that significantly enhances our visual exam. Recognized by the World Health Organization, this award-winning technology has conducted more than 25 million exams. Easy to use and painless, Velascope helps give us vital information in our quest for early detection of any cancerous or pre-cancerous changes.

If we suspect any unusual changes in your mouth tissue, we may suggest a biopsy and microscopic analysis by a qualified lab. We are happy to put it to your notice that our dentists in Hillsborough, NJ also serve the patients of Bridgewater, Manville, Somerville, Bradley Gardens, Bound Brook and Raritan.
