Our New “Crystal Ball”
We thought it was interesting to learn that the earliest evidence of dentistry — a tooth with scratches indicating an attempt to remove a cavity — dates all the way back to 14,000 BC! Scientists speculate that a sharpened rock was used to scrape at the decay. No one knows how, or if, decayed areas between teeth would have been located, much less how they would have been treated. Fortunately, you do not have to rely on guesswork, luck, or a friend with a sharp rock to satisfy your dental needs. Learn how our new addition will help us improve your care while dramatically reducing the impact on you and the environment.
The Green CT Difference
At Smiles by Holsinger & Higgins, we strive to stay up to date with the latest techniques and equipment. We want your care and treatment to continue to be more comfortable, more effective, and more efficient with each visit. That is why we are so excited about the new piece of equipment we recently added.
We have embraced the recent move away from older-style x-rays and toward digital imaging with the addition of our Green CT scanner. One tremendous benefit to you is that radiation exposure is drastically reduced with digital imaging. In addition, 3D technology has allowed us the ability to diagnose and treat your dental needs in ways that could not even be imagined before. It lets us see detailed, three-dimensional images of your whole mouth — teeth, bone, and soft tissue — so we can more quickly and accurately plan your care. And our new Green CT, which uses renewable energy, is the first digital 3D dental imaging system to be patient and environmentally friendly.
We are committed to your health, comfort, and safety, and that is reflected in our utilizing state-of-the-art technology like the low-dose radiation 3D Green CT scanner. If you are in Denton, Maryland, or the surrounding area, contact our team to find out more about how we can make a difference in your overall health and well-being.
