Digital X-Rays

Instead of relying on the slow darkroom development and hazardous chemical use of traditional film, our greatly improved digital radiography creates high-resolution X-rays in seconds for viewing! Our team can magnify and color-code the images, easily transfer them over e-mail, and use them to ensure that your treatment is as precise and successful as possible.

X-rays have been a vital part of dental care for many years, allowing doctors to see what’s going on underneath the surface of your smile. However, traditional film came with its downfalls – slow development, bulky storage, and potentially hazardous radiation exposure, for instance. Thankfully, Dolan Dental Group has chosen to invest in advanced digital X-ray technology!

With digital X-rays, patients won’t have to worry about waiting for their images to develop; they’re captured by a high-tech camera and available for viewing within seconds on a nearby monitor. In addition to the images being easily transferable and stored digitally, patients will enjoy a significantly smaller amount of radiation exposure as well, which is much safer for children and adults alike.

Intraoral Cameras

Have you ever been curious about what exactly your dentist is seeing every time they peer into your mouth during an exam? With the help of our intraoral camera, you can undergo an in-depth tour of your own oral health from the comfort of the treatment chair!

Intraoral cameras are amazing diagnostic tools that Dr. Brendan Dolan, Dr. Riley Gionfriddo, and the rest of our staff regularly use in order to get a closer look at our patients’ oral health needs. The camera-tipped wand is comfortably inserted past the lips, and the high-resolution image is transferred to a monitor in the room so that patients can enjoy the show as well. Here in Wethersfield, we use intraoral imaging for treatment planning, procedure acceptance from insurance companies, patient education, and much more!

Rotary Endodontics

Root canal treatment isn’t exactly a patient’s definition of “fun,” but here at Dolan Dental Group, we strive to make this treatment process as smooth and comfortable as possible. By utilizing a state-of-the-art handpiece, we can relieve serious pain and revitalize your natural tooth quicker than ever.

Root canal treatment (also referred to as endodontic treatment) occurs when our doctors clean infected pulp and nerves from the root canals of the tooth in order to rescue it from extraction. This procedure is often considered to be uncomfortable because patients are struggling with a great deal of pain already – that’s why we utilize rotary endodontics here in Wethersfield! The modern electrical handpiece speeds up the process greatly and results in simpler and more precise results, which is good news for our patients and our team members alike! Please give Dolan Dental Group a call today if you’d like to schedule your first appointment.

CBCT Scanner

The Cone Beam Computerized Tomography (CBCT) scanner is a highly advanced device designed to capture 3D X-rays of your many complex oral structures. With the CBCT scanner, we can not only create better treatment plans, but we can also more accurately diagnose issues when they appear. Whether we need to create a surgical guide for your upcoming dental implant treatment or confirm the precise location of unexplained pain, the CBCT scanner makes the entire process a whole lot easier.

Digital Impression System

Do you remember having to bite down on uncomfortable, unpleasant-tasting material the last time you needed to have a dental impression taken? That won’t be something you have to worry about at our office. Thanks to our digital impression system, we can simply scan your mouth to create a virtual model of your teeth. This approach is much faster, and it also offers improved accuracy, making it less likely that the impressions will need to be redone. 

Cavity Detection System

It’s always best to identify cavities as early as possible so that they can be treated long before they can lead to serious issues. But instead of poking at your teeth to check for decay, we can instead use our state-of-the-art cavity detection system. A special light is shined on your teeth to reveal the areas where cavities are present. This technology greatly enhances our ability to help our patients protect their smiles from long-term oral health issues.

Soft Tissue Laser

Soft tissue lasers have proven to be an invaluable tool for performing certain periodontal treatments and cosmetic procedures. Simply put, we can use a laser to remove any diseased or unneeded gum tissue. Since the laser is so precise, you will not have to worry about healthy tissue being removed unnecessarily. Also, dental lasers are known to cause very little discomfort, and in many cases, they can make the use of a local anesthetic unnecessary.
