Digital Radiographs (X-Rays)
When diagnosing dental problems, X-rays are extremely important in helping our team locate damage that may be hidden out of sight. In order to keep you and your loved ones as safe and comfortable as possible, Dr. Ludu and Dr. Sharma have chosen to invest in digital X-ray technology here in Phoenix. This state-of-the-art tool completely eliminates darkroom development and the use of hazardous chemicals. Instead, your X-rays are available for viewing immediately and can even be magnified and color-coded on our computer system. Potentially harmful radiation exposure is reduced by up to 80% as well.
If you fear the use of needles during your dental appointment, The Wand is a wonderful alternative for the delivery of local anesthesia. This machine uses an unassuming “wand” that looks like a pen but contains a very fine needle. Before the needle ever makes contact with the patient’s gum tissue, painkiller will cover the area and numb it properly so that no pain is ever felt. By being able to pinpoint the delivery more effectively, we can also prevent that numbing feeling from reaching other areas of the mouth and causing discomfort.
