Technology

We believe that an investment in technology is an investment in you and your excellent oral health. Today we use technology in various ways for diagnosing, educating, and ensuring your family enjoys excellent oral health. Please take a moment to browse through the state-of-the-art technology we offer, then give us a call to make an appointment to learn more.

Digital X-Rays

Dental x-rays are an essential diagnostic tool because they help us detect dental conditions when they're small and before they cause significant damage to your oral health. 

But many patients today are understandably concerned about their radiation exposure with dental x-rays. Your safety is of the utmost importance to us, so we are pleased to offer state-of-the-art digital x-rays that reduce your exposure by as much as 70 percent compared to conventional x-rays.

Another advantage is that the high-resolution images produced with digital x-rays enable us to see small problems long before we could see them on a traditional x-ray. Addressing conditions in the early stages allows us to treat the problem long before you feel any discomfort.

Digital x-rays are also valuable because they allow you to be part of the process. We display the images for you on your chairside monitor, so you and Dr. Pham can discuss them, and you can make an informed decision about your treatment.

Intraoral Cameras

Have you ever sat in the dental chair during an exam and wondered or worried about what the doctor sees when they look in your mouth? We use intraoral cameras at our San Jose dental office because they let you and Dr. Pham see the same image at the same time.

Using an intraoral camera is easy; a small handheld camera captures real-time images as Dr. Pham directs it over the surfaces of your teeth. At the same time, you can see the images on your chairside monitor and follow along as Dr. Pham points out problem areas. Seeing problems for yourself helps you understand why treatment is necessary, and informed patients tend to enjoy better oral health. 

Laser Dentistry

We are pleased to offer our patients the benefits of laser dentistry at our San Jose dental office. When used in dentistry, lasers help shorten the duration of treatment and provide pain relief for canker and cold sores.

We also use lasers as an adjunct to our periodontal treatment to increase comfort, minimize bleeding, and promotes faster healing. Dental lasers can also be used to recontour gum tissue for aesthetic purposes. 

Electric Handpieces

We are committed to providing you with comfortable, stress-free dental care. Dr. Pham is always looking out for emerging technology that streamlines your visits and improves your comfort while still delivering world-class outcomes.

Today we use electric handpieces that allow Dr. Pham to remove decay quickly and efficiently and minimize the time you have to spend in the dental chair. Electric handpieces are quieter, produce less vibration, and also provide a level of precision that’s not possible with air-driven tools
