In our office we use diagnostic technology such as digital x-rays, intraoral photos, and 3D scans. Each type of image provides different information, so sometimes it is necessary to take multiple images. Our digital x-rays and 3D CT scanner use far less radiation than the traditional film x-rays, making them completely safe.
Dr. Maxfield also uses a CO2 laser for many procedures. It can be used for anything from cauterizing bleeding to tissue re-contouring. It is useful in eliminating bacteria; the CO2 laser can be used to treat localized gum disease.
