Here at Michael T. Westendorf DDS in Cincinnati, OH we choose to adopt only time-tested and environmentally safe dental technology that will give our patients great results and more value during their visit. The state of your oral health matters to your overall health, and with this great dental technology we can increase your oral health. Improving your quality of life through great oral health care is our business!
EnviroStars is a voluntary program offered to local small businesses. The program certifies businesses having practices and policies in place demonstrating proper management & reduction of hazardous and other waste. Dr. Westendorf is proud to be a part of this important work.
Below are the technology services we provide:
Traditional X-rays took time to set up, develop, and view – we solve for all that wasted time with digital X-rays. Digital X-rays allow us to take high definition X-ray images of your mouth in only seconds. Digital X-rays show up on a monitor that we can view our patients in only seconds. Using these images, we can show you exactly what is going on in your mouth for a fraction of the cost of a traditional X-ray, savings that we pass onto you. Digital X-rays expose our patients to only 20% of the radiation that a traditional X-ray does, making it a healthier imaging solution.
Dental X-rays are primarily used to detect:
At Michael T. Westendorf DDS, we use digital x-rays, which have several advantages over traditional film based x-rays. Digital x-rays allow us to take x-rays with 1/5 of the radiation that you would receive from traditional dental x-rays. The worry of exposure to excess radiation is eliminated.
Large on-screen x-rays make patient communication more effective. The immediate observation of the images on the screen allows us to discuss your dental health quickly and accurately.
An intraoral camera looks a bit like a toothbrush and allows us to show you a live video feed of the inside of your mouth. We use intraoral cameras to aid us in detection and education of oral health warning signs. There is incredible value in being able to point at a place in your mouth rather than having to explain to you the areas we are concerned about.
