Technology can make your treatment more accurate, efficient, and comfortable. When Dr. Leech finds a new advancement in modern dentistry that he thinks can benefit our patients or increase the safety of your treatment, he invests in it so he can give you better care.
Here are some of the ways that technology can improve your dental treatment.
Your security is important to us. By eliminating paper charting, we are able to provide outstanding security for your personal information.
We store all of your personal data using encryption on our secure server and back it up as an added measure of safety. Because everything from your chart is accessible via computer, Dr. Leech can make side-by-side comparisons of your x-rays and charting to monitor changes to your oral health over time, all with the touch of a mouse.
We can also send any necessary information electronically to specialists coordinating your care and forward x-rays, narratives, and charting to your insurance company.
Televisions in Patient Rooms
If you have dental anxiety, you will really appreciate the televisions we have in our treatment rooms. You can watch a movie or a favorite show while you have your treatment. This helps many of our patients relax while they get the care they need to stay healthy. Besides, we know that our patients lead busy lives and you deserve to catch up on your television time! We encourage you to kick back and relax while you are here.
Digital Dental X-Rays
Aside from your regular dental exam with your dentist, dental x-rays are our most important diagnostic tool. We believe in providing you with the best care in the safest way possible. That is why we use digital dental x-rays in our Murfreesboro, TN dental office. Not only do digital dental x-rays provide us with the highest resolution images possible, but they also reduce radiation by up to 80 percent compared with traditional film x-rays.
We can bring up your images instantly on our treatment room monitors for fast diagnosis. All of your x-rays are stored securely in your digital chart for easy access and to protect your personal information.
Intraoral cameras are small digital devices that we can put inside your mouth to record high-resolution still images and video. We can use these images to present treatment to you, allowing you to see exactly what Dr. Leech sees during your exam. We can date and store these images in your digital chart for later comparison of your dental conditions.
Sometimes insurance companies want additional information because not all conditions are detectable via dental x-rays. Intraoral images allow us to provide that additional information for conditions such as gum recession, fractures, and damage to your teeth.
