Precision Dentistry

Our Dentists use high magnification loupes to enhance the precision of patient care.  You just can’t fulfill that level of care with the naked eye.

Digital Imaging

Dr. Pillai chooses carefully which and when radiographs are taken. Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for digital dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Dr. Pillai utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies within the surgery. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities better. Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or health funds.

Intraoral Camera

Many patients, especially younger patients, are very familiar with the latest technology and are comfortable with the high tech practice. Dr. Pillai utilizes intraoral camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An intraoral camera allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order for us to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations.  I ntra oral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our  software program to provide a permanent record of treatments.
