Technology

The technology and equipment used at Hillside Dental represents the latest, most trusted and proven technology in the dental industry. This is of upmost importance to us as we strive to deliver our dental care in the most efficient and comfortable manner possible.

Digital X-Rays

To protect our patients from excessive radiation, we use digital radiography. This decreases radiation by more than 90 percent compared to conventional dental X-rays. To take a digital x-ray of your teeth, we insert a tiny sensor camera into your mouth. The X-rays are then instantly transmitted to a computer screen, where we will review them with you as we offer treatment options.

Intraoral Camera

We use an intraoral camera—about the size of a pen—to help you and us clearly see the condition of your mouth. We can significantly zoom in on diseased areas, cracks, chips and worn fillings. These images are displayed on a computer screen so you can view the areas we’ll be treating, making procedures more understandable. The intraoral camera is a diagnostic dental tool that lets us more easily identify potential problems within the mouth.

CAESY Patient Information

We give you options and show you the possibilities using the CAESY patient information system. This multi-media system gives patients access to information about treatment options and procedures. We inform you visually, in writing, and through conversations on how to improve your smile and your dental health. We believe patients should be well informed so they can understand how current and future dental care will affect the overall health of your smile.

Sonicare Electric Toothbrush

This brushing technology is far beyond electric and manual toothbrushes. Sonicare cleans with a combination of high-speed brushing (31,000 strokes per minute) and sonic wave action. It’s sonic technology is proven to remove plaque without the bristles touching the plaque itself. It reaches plaque in hard to reach places. It is gentle on gums and sensitive teeth and yet is powerful enough to reverse gingivitis, an early form of gum disease. It is also proven to remove 80 percent of coffee, tea and tobacco stains.
