Dental Technology

In Scottsdale Dental Care we are determined to offer cutting-edge dental technology that gives you shorter, safer, and more comfortable dental appointments. The technologies that Dr. Thompson uses ensure predictable and beautiful results. 


If you have ever been a dental patient due to a toothache, broken tooth, or another dental need, you know how waiting is an unbearable experience. Dental replacement procedures can take weeks with old technology. Thanks to our new technology, we can find the right treatment for you and cater your needs right away. 

Diagnostic Advancements |

Advanced diagnostic technology allows us to discover all of your specific and unique needs within seconds. Your treatment will be more precise and therefore more effective than ever. No more having to wait for days and even weeks to get your dentures, veneers, or brackets. 

To ensure your entire satisfaction we have equipped ourselves with the following diagnostic equipment. 

Cephalometric X-Rays 

Also referred to as ceph, this tool enables Dr. Thompson to capture a complete image of the side of the face. He can better see the teeth, jawbone, and soft tissues beyond what he might see in a physical exam. These x-rays are extraoral, so no plates or film are inserted into the mouth.

This technology is usually used for the following:

  • Diagnose TMJ
  • Explore possible reasons of teeth misalignment
  • Diagnose suspected fractures
  • Orthodontic work
Digital X-Rays

Digital radiography uses an electronic sensor instead of x-ray film. This x-ray instantly sends detailed images to a computer screen. Digital x-rays make it easy for your dental professionals and you to see images of your mouth and detect potential problems, while reducing radiation exposure by 80-90%.

But there are so many other advantages that this technology offers over the conventional methods. These advantages include an enhanced image quality, no more need of chemical developers, quick image sharing, and results are faster and sharper.

Oral Cancer Screening Technology 

In order to catch cancer at its earliest stage, Scottsdale Dental Care offers advanced oral screening technology. Using fluorescent lights, we can detect cancerous or precancerous lesions before they can be seen with the naked eye. This is a pain-free process that takes only a few moments and can actually save your life in the long run.

You only need one appointment to get your screening and results.

Panoramic X-Rays 

Panoramic x-rays show missing teeth, abnormal growth, extra teeth, and other oral problems that can be difficult to detect. We offer this technology to patients of all ages so that we do not miss any problems that need to be taken care of.

We guarantee you customized treatments to you and will give you the best results, thanks to our exceptional dental technology. To learn more, please contact our office in Scottsdale today. We look forward to meeting you and giving you a rewarding dental experience.
