Our investment in technology allows us to enhance your patient-centered
dental experience from the first moment you step into our office until the
moment you leave. Using advanced data-management systems, we fast-track
the check-in and checkout process, allowing you more time to relax before
your appointment. Then, whether you need routine x-rays or a complete
restoration, we use top-of-the-line equipment to enhance comfort, ensure
safety, and speed up the treatment process. Our state-of-the-art
Intraoral Cameras: This is a highly advanced piece of
diagnostic equipment that allows you and Drs. Biria and Nolan to clearly
see inside your mouth. The handheld camera can zoom in on a specific
tooth, and all of the images are displayed on a television screen so that
you can be an active part of your treatment.
Digital Radiographs: This form of x-ray imaging uses
electronic sensors instead of traditional film, transmitting images to a
computer immediately. It is efficient, comfortable, and highly accurate,
and it reduces the level of radiation the patient receives.
Patient Focused UHD Displays: No need to squint at a
small monitor over your shoulder to see your digital x-rays or review your
treatment plan. Huge 47" UHD screens offer you a detailed view of your
Cone Beam CT - 3D Imaging: The CBCT used by dental
professionals is a computed tomography (CT) system. The machine rotates
around the patient and captures data using a cone shaped x-ray beam.
Dental CBCT images provide three-dimensional information, rather than the
two-dimensional information provided by a conventional x-ray image. This
may help with the diagnosis, treatment planning and evaluation of certain
The data is then used to reconstruct a three-dimensional image of the
following regions of the patient’s anatomy: dental (teeth); oral and
maxillofacial region (mouth, jaw, and neck); and ears, nose, and throat.
CBCT is increasingly used by dental professionals for various clinical
applications including dental implant planning, visualization of abnormal
teeth, evaluation of the jaws and face, cleft palate assessment, diagnosis
of dental caries (cavities), endodontic (root canal) diagnosis, and
diagnosis of dental trauma.
At West Linn Dental, we regularly upgrade our equipment because we know
that advanced equipment ensures more accurate assessments, which means a
better solution for your dental needs.
