Dental Technology

Michelle Hedgecock, DDS offers state-of-the-art Dental Technology and some of the most advanced dental techniques of today.  We use these modern technologies to streamline the art of dentistry. At Michelle Hedgecock, DDS, you can benefit from a variety of advanced dental services, whether practical or cosmetic in nature.

Prexion 3D CBCT

The Prexion 3D CBCT is one of our latest pieces of dental technology. The Prexion 3D CBCT is a 3D scanner; as its name implies, it creates 3D scans of teeth, jaws, and sinuses, “at all touch points.”  This means wherever your teeth press into the mouthpiece. When you bite into this mouthpiece gently a detailed image is created during the scan. It gives us a more in-depth look at your teeth and treatment is more easily diagnosed.

Digital Radiography

At Michelle Hedgecock, DDS, another dental technology we use, is digital radiography which makes x-ray scans of your teeth available directly, digitally, and immediately.  Digital radiography eliminates the need for the chemical processing of films, makes for a much more efficient process overall, and emits 75% less radiation than traditional x-rays.  For taking individual 2D radiographs we utilize the handheld Nomad at Michelle Hedgecock, DDS, which is the current world’s leader in intraoral x-ray units.

Through the use of intraoral photos, we can use a small camera to take magnified pictures of your teeth and gums. This allows for us to get an in depth look at hard-to-see nooks and crannies in your mouth and teeth. It also allows us to show you what we see so that you may better understand the health of your mouth.

Electronic Records

At Michelle Hedgecock, DDS, we use paperless, electronic records.  These are easier to update and maintain as opposed to traditional paper records.

These are but a few of the many technologies and comforts offered at Michelle Hedgecock, DDS. We look forward to meeting you.
