The future of Dentistry is Digital! At Reddy Family Dental, you will see that technology is a big part of our office. We use computers to track your appointments, communicate with you, record and update treatment details and maintain insurance records. We also use them to capture, store and transmit your dental x-rays and intra-oral images.
Digital x-rays significantly lower exposure to radiation.
Digital x-rays:We use cutting edge digital sensors to process your x-rays. They produce outstanding, easy to read images in far less time than conventional film. Best of all, digital x-rays significantly lower exposure to radiation.
At Reddy Family Dental, our entire office is now digital with the use of computers for patient charting. Apart from the many benefits to our staff, the most significant benefit of digital charting lies in its ability to educate patients during the case presentation.
With better quality information using digital charting and the ability to store and access more information in one place, digitally networked dental practices have a significant edge with treatment planning.
With all the components of a comprehensive oral examination needed for diagnosis within a mouse click, we can develop treatment plans with ease.
Paper charting can be a time-consuming task for the dental team. Digital charting enables systematic layout of the treatment plan and saves valuable time for everyone.
For your comfort, we use the latest Schick intraoral camera to produce a picture with exceptional detail and quality of the mouth.

The camera has autofocus and advanced intuitive lighting system which require no manual adjustments. It integrates with our dental software so that we can store and share pictures with specialists or insurance companies, as needed.

A panoramic x-ray (usually called a pano or panorex) is a two dimensional x-ray image that captures the entire mouth in a single image and includes teeth, upper and lower jaws, tissues and surrounding structures. Panoramic x-rays are a crucial tool in dental diagnosis as it covers a wide area than a conventional intraoral x-ray. A panoramic x-ray exam is painless, fast and easy. A Panorex provides valuable information about the nasal area, maxillary sinuses, tooth positioning and gum and bone irregularities. This examination is also used to plan treatment for full and partial dentures, braces, extractions and implants.

What is E4D CAD/CAM?
The E4D system is a state-of-the-art digital scanner, virtual design center, and a milling unit capable of fabricating esthetic and strong porcelain restorations. This system provides us with the capability of delivering same day porcelain crowns, veneers, inlays and onlays to you using the latest in technology and clinically proven materials. In contrast to conventional porcelain restorations, which often taken two full appointments to restore a single tooth, the E4D system enables us to scan your tooth, design the final restoration virtually, and mill your metal-free restoration with precision in just about an hour. This eliminates the need to wear a temporary for weeks and come back for another appointment.

Caries Detection Device
CariVu uses patented trans-illumination technology to identify caries (cavities) and cracks on the surface of your teeth, as well as in the hard-to-see areas between your teeth. Using safe, near infrared light, CariVu allows your doctor an almost transparent view of your teeth in order to see structural anomalies and carious lesions. The images look like traditional X-rays and provide similar diagnostic information, but CariVu does so without the use of radiation, making it ideal for children, pregnant women, and those unwilling or unable to undergo a traditional dental X-ray.

- Detect tooth decay as early as possible
- Eliminate or reduce the number of costly treatments that you may need in the future
- Treat small problems before they become serious dental issues
- Ensure you achieve a lifetime of oral health safely and comfortably
Daily challenges of creating homeostasis, taking impressions, working around implants, and so much more are made easy with innovative laser technology providing with an easier, faster, and better solution for unmatched patient care. Lasers are the most precise, least traumatic, and will heal with less post-operative pain than any other technique. There is less chance of infection, and some soft tissue procedures around the gingiva can be completed without anesthesia.
How has laser dentistry affected patient care?
Laser Dentistry has created a new level of quality dental care. The ability to perform more procedures in less time without sacrificing patient care and comfort are an important advantage over other technologies. Lasers can be used near metal crowns, on patients with pacemakers, braces, on teeth with metal amalgams, and in procedures near bone with no contraindications. Patients report that laser treatments are gentle in comparison with an electrosurge and is substantially less invasive therefore generates less bleeding during the procedure. Lasers are predictable, PRECISE with little or no recession, swelling, necrosis, quicker healing, and reduce the need for sutures.
