When you seek care at our office, you are assured that Dr. Koza and his staff utilize the latest in technology to enhance the quality and fit for your dental care.
Our practice uses dental loupes and an operating microscope to enhance the precision of patient care.
Dentistry is micro-surgery. Using magnification enables us to create dental restorations with incredibly precise fit and finish. You just cannot fulfill that level of care with the naked eye.
Dr. Koza chooses carefully which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see many things that we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and look for any signs of chronic infection, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Dr. Koza utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information.
Digital imaging also allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
Many patients, especially younger patients, are very familiar with the latest technology and are comfortable with the high tech practice. Computers and TV screens are their primary method of information processing.
Dr. Koza utilizes intraoral camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An intraoral camera is a very small camera that can comfortably take photos in the mouth. An intraoral camera allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order for us to accurately make a diagnosis. This technology also offers you the ability to see what the dentist sees and can make treatment needs more clear and understandable.
Intra oral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These images can be emailed to you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance companies if necessary.
