Dental Technology

Here at Summer Dental, we use state-of-the-art dental technology to help create the best smile possible for you. Here is a description of some of the modern technology we employ.

Digital X-Rays

Digital x-rays have revolutionized dentistry and made the diagnosis of oral issues much safer. These x-rays emit as low as 10 percent of the radiation that traditional film radiographs produce.

The digital response time is much quicker than film. This leads to a smaller amount of radiation necessary to generate an image. Using this technology, our dentist is able to quickly produce and analyze the results.

Oral Cancer Screenings

When oral cancer hits, it’s best to catch it early when there is a higher chance that treatment will be successful. We provide oral cancer screenings to guarantee any problems are detected as soon as possible. During your routine visits, we will examine your mouth for any evidence of oral cancer to determine if further investigation is needed.

Intraoral Camera

Sometimes it can feel like it’s impossible to see what the doctor sees when looking at an image of the inside of your mouth. With our intraoral camera, you will feel more confident and aware of what you are seeing.

This incredible technical tool is small enough to keep you feeling comfortable during an examination. It is also effective in helping our dentist—and you—understand what’s going on in your mouth. This camera is connected to a TV, meaning you have instant viewing access to these images.


Detecting cavities visually or with x-rays may not always be 100% accurate. DIAGNOdent is a tool that uses laser technology to catch cavities that are hard to find or in the early stages of development. This allows us to catch decay before it develops into a bigger problem.
