Our state-of-the-art technologies ensure accuracy, efficiency, and comfort. Our dental equipment is safe, effective, and well-maintained. Some of our dental technologies include those listed below:

Digital X-Rays

Our advanced digital x-rays magnify and enhance teeth for better diagnosis and treatment. This technology allows us to take images of your child’s teeth and display them on a computer screen quickly and easily.

With digital x-rays, we can view your child’s teeth and surrounding structures with remarkable accuracy. These images provide the information we need to plan their dental treatment.

Digital x-rays require much less radiation than traditional film x-rays. Digital x-rays are a safe and effective dental technology.

Panoramic X-Ray

A Panoramic x-ray machine rotates around your child’s entire head to take a 360-degree view of their teeth, sinuses, and the bone structure of their head and jaws. This provides a more complete image than standard x-rays. Panoramic x-ray imagery is a valuable resource for Dr. Crawford-McKendall to use in diagnosis and treatment planning.

Cavitron

The Cavitron is a handheld device used in periodontal deep cleaning. While scaling can be completed by hand, the Cavitron uses ultrasonic technology to remove calculus from teeth and gums quickly, gently and effectively.

With the Cavitron, patient and hygienist comfort is increased and time spent scaling and polishing is decreased.
