William A. Bilodeau, DMD, FAGD utilizes both digital intra-oral X-rays and digital panoramic X-rays. Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up 35mm film to the light. Digital X-rays result in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you.
Our Cerec system uses a state-of-the-art digital 3D camera to create an optical impression for crowns and bridges. Your restoration is designed through CAD software and milled, cured and glazed right in our office to provide a perfect match for your restoration. We can return a restoration created just for you by Dr. Bilodeau within a shorter time period than it would take to get a dental crown or dental bridge from a laboratory. Every detail is overseen by Dr. Bilodeau for a perfect match esthetically and perfect function in your dentition.
Dr. Bilodeau utilizes intraoral camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An intraoral camera is a very small camera – in some cases, just a few millimeters long. 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. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you!
Intra oral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These images can be printed for you, other dental specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.
