Dental Technology

Advances in dental technology raise the bar in oral health care treatment. Midgette Family Dentistry believes using the latest dental technology is the fastest, most cost-effective way to provide superior dental care services to our patients. It is just one part of how your dental care experience at Midgette Family Dentistry is designed to keep you comfortable as you receive the very best in oral health care.

Dental technology improves all stages of dental care, beginning with a more precise examination. When problems are found earlier, they can be treated earlier and dental health is maintained. Dental problems begin with decay and damage, and technology helps your dentist to find both issues early.


CEREC stands for ceramic reconstruction and is a cornerstone in the repair and restoration of dental problems. These include broken teeth, broken or lost crowns, inlays and onlays and even some bridgework. This computer-aided procedure uses 3D photography and CAD technology to give a complete picture of the restoration needed. The diamond-head cutting tool then cuts your precise restoration out of a block of ceramic, providing you with a custom fit like none other. The entire appointment can last less than two hours.

3D Cone Beam X-ray Imaging

Dental technology provides another excellent imaging tool we use at Midgette Family Dentistry. 3D cone beam x-ray imaging is a CT imaging scan that rotates around the patient’s head. A cone shaped beam captures data and converts it to an imaging scan the dentist can use to get a complete picture of a complex problem. Having a 3D picture can help the dentist find the most effective and most efficient procedure to correct the problem, bringing the patient back to good oral health.
