The world of dentistry is changing every day. Dr. Mauro and his team at North Hills Family Dental understand and embrace that fact. Digital X-rays are essential in today’s dentistry. With digital X-rays, we are able to get superior images while using a small fraction of the radiation used to produce the sub-par images of conventional film X-rays. Also with digital X-rays, there are no more smelly developing chemicals from conventional X-rays, and no more long wait times for your X-rays! They also increase worker safety and decrease our carbon footprint.

Through the use of digital X-rays, laser caries (cavities) detection, intraoral cameras, and 6.5X magnifying loupes (glasses), Dr. Mauro is able to see and diagnose disease at the earliest of stages. This translates into early disease detection, minimal use of local anesthetic (novocaine), minimally-invasive dentistry, and conservative dental procedures.

CBCT, or Cone Beam Computed Tomography, give us a comprehensive view of a patient’s oral health. Unlike traditional x-rays, this 3D digital scanner allows Dr. Mauro to scan the entire head of a patient. The high-resolution images delivered by the Galileos CT scanner provide a more in-depth view of a patient’s oral health.

With easy-to-use 3D views, we can help you understand the overall health of your mouth, and quickly diagnose potential oral health issues. By providing incredibly clear, reliable images, a comprehensive, full-face scan, and fast results, CBCT technology helps us deliver exceptional dental care.

Dr. Mauro also utilizes an isolation system called Izolation which acts as an all-in-one mouth prop and suctioning device. This system cuts the working time by 20-50% while keeping a dry field and ensuring a long-lasting outcome for restorative procedures.
