At Smile Source North Side, patients of all ages experience some of the top dental technologies in Spokane and beyond! Our 3D imaging tools and cutting-edge dental care solutions help make every treatment more effective and more comfortable. Because every dental experience should include state-of-the-art care, Dr. Jeff Henneberg and his team have invested in state-of-the-art 3D imaging, digital impressions, scanning technology, and more.

Your visit to Smile Source North Side may include any of the following dental technologies:

Digital X-Rays

dentist reviewing a patient's dental x-raysA dental x-ray is an image that enables us to see underneath the surface of teeth and gums. These images can help us to see decay, infections, impacted teeth, bone loss and many other oral-related problems. Because our digital x-rays use a very minimal amount of radiation, so they are safe for patients of all ages. At Smile Source North Side, our goal is always to provide a comfortable, safe experience when having x-rays taken.

A patient may need x-rays because in many cases, an examination just isn't enough. There may be a lot of things going on below the surface of your gums and we won't be able to see anything without the help of an x-ray. Some of the different things that we can see on an x-ray include underlying tooth decay, root infections, bone loss, and impacted wisdom teeth. For children, x-rays allow us to monitor the development and growth of permanent teeth.

3D CT Scanning

With benefits ranging from enhanced accuracy to reduced risks during surgery, 3D CT Scanning is quickly becoming the go-to solution for dental imaging. The game-changing 3D scanning service significantly improves patient diagnosis and treatment, making the diagnostic process more efficient than ever at our North Side dental office.

3D CT Scanning is a diagnostic tool helps our dental team visualize bone density, soft tissue, and even nerve pathways. For patients who need  surgical planning or are considering dental implants, crowns, or dentures, this diagnostic scan can provide the high-definition clarity essential for your personalized treatment plan.

iTero Digital Impressions

At Smile Source North Side, we use digital-based impressions to create restorations like veneers, crowns, bridge work and even dentures. Unlike uncomfortable, messy traditional dental impressions, iTero digital impressions produce a quality image in just several minutes to provide you with the high-quality care and dental restorations that you deserve.

Our dentists may use the iTero digital scanning device whenever impressions are needed, for crafting a custom dental crown, placing a dental bridge, or fitting your new dentures. iTero digital impressions provide us with a detailed image of your teeth and surrounding soft tissues, impressions that are often more advanced and detailed when compared to traditional options.

iTero scanning is safe, fast, painless, and suitable for many of our patients,  even young patients who are set to undergo orthodontic treatment! You can feel confident in the technology being used in our office to take these digital dental impressions.

Intraoral Camera

Intra-oral cameras are helpful in allowing our team to see everything going on inside your mouth. This camera magnifies everything that it looks at concerning your smile, capturing more than a typical examination. This allows Dr. Henneberg and his team to see areas of decay, cracks, breaks and fractures as well as other intra-oral problems. The camera is safe, effective and can be used on patients of all ages.

Because the camera magnifies what it's coming into contact with, we are able to spot problems easier and more conveniently. We'll also be able to show you the findings on the camera, to provide you with all the information you need to move forward with your recommended treatment plan.

Intraoral camera scanning is an effective tool that we use every day, allowing us to identify potential oral health concerns more quickly and create treatment plans according to what it is that you need. Our dentists may use the camera before, during, or even after certain dental procedures!
