Our practice uses high power loupes to enhance the precision of patient care.
Dentistry is micro-surgery. Using loupes, we can create dental restorations with incredibly precise fit and finish. You just can’t fulfill that level of care with the naked eye.
Drs. Lindell Frankum or Thelma Frankum chooses carefully which and when radiographs are taken. Radiographs allow us to see everything 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 nerves of teeth, 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. Drs. Lindell Frankum and Thelma Frankum utilize Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities better.
Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light.
