WHAT IS Dental Technology?
At Oakridge Dental, our team sets out to provide each and every one of our Farmington, UT patients with the highest level of care. To accomplish this, our office utilizes only the most cutting-edge technology available in the dental industry to enhance each individual's experience, increase accuracy, and streamline the treatment and diagnosis processes. Some of the innovative technologies featured at our office include CBCT (cone beam computed tomography) 3D x-rays, intraoral cameras, and 3D impressions. With the help of these diagnostic devices, board-certified dentist Dr. Brian Call can gain a comprehensive view of your internal oral structures, detect any underlying issues, and even help complete some treatments. To learn more about our state-of-the-art register of technology, contact our office and speak to a member of our team.
Types of Dental Technology
Just a few of the diverse technologies we utilize at our Farmington, UT practice include:
- CBCT 3D x-rays: This device utilizes cone beam computer tomography to gain a 360° view of not only your teeth and gums but also your skull, jawbone, and other internal structures. This comprehensive view allows Dr. Call to make complete and accurate diagnoses of a range of conditions.
- Intraoral cameras: Intraoral cameras can be utilized during a dental exam or an oral procedure to give Dr. Call and his team a more detailed view of the inside of your mouth. It is a pen-like device with a camera on the end, which projects images onto a screen to be viewed.
- 3D impressions: Replacing messy, uncomfortable molds, 3D impressions provide an accurate replication of your teeth and gums. Once your 3D impressions have been taken digitally using an advanced oral scanner, they are then sent straight to our records and can be used to craft customized restorations, like dental crowns, inlays, and onlays.

"I love Oakridge dental! Seriosuly I never leave reviews but I had to for those of you searching for a dentist. Stop here. Look no further. I've had a lot of dental work and gone to other dentists before. I feel like I truley never have been able to get a grasp on how to care for my teeth at home and with dentist visits until I found this place. They really did care about me and my questions. Ive learned so much from the team on how to properly care for my teeth. A lot of it due to my amazing hygienist Natalie. She knows her job like it's her life calling. If you go make sure you get Natalie. I have seen other hygienists too and they are all so professional and good at their jobs. But Natalie is exceptional! She has always looked out for me and helped me make sure I get the care I need. Also a nod to the docs they run an amazing clinic. Seems like they always have new gadgets and the newest best tools on the market. They also have offered more preventative care then another dentist office I've been too.

who can benefit from dental technology?
Any patient, regardless of their age, could benefit from the use of safe and effective dental technology during their examination or treatment. In fact, these services tend to increase comfort when compared to more traditional methods. Although CBCT 3D x-rays are usually only taken on an as-needed basis, Dr. Call may have them taken more often if you are about to receive a certain procedure or are experiencing an emergency dental issue. Our team uses 3D impressions to create accurate and fully customized restorations for our patients (like crowns, bridges, or implants) or Invisalign trays. Meanwhile, intraoral cameras can be used during routine dental examinations or complex oral procedures to give Dr. Call and his team a close, comprehensive view of your teeth and gums.
Why IS DENTAL TECHNOLOGY USED?
Cutting-edge technology is used to enhance comfort and efficiency throughout your appointment. Additionally, the devices we utilize improve our ability to make accurate diagnoses and design treatment plans that address all of your complex and unique dental needs. Dr. Call and his staff will give you all of the information you need before any technology is used so you can prepare accordingly. While most of the devices we use don't require any significant preparation, Dr. Call usually advises patients receiving CBCT x-rays to wear loose-fitting clothing and leave any jewelry at home. Typically, taking x-rays or 3D impressions only lasts a few minutes.
