At So Good Dental, we offer a variety of services to help you keep your teeth and gums healthy. We enjoy working with our patients to promote good oral hygiene habits and preventive dental measures.

To serve our patients, Dr. Sohyoun Jun and Dr. Eunjung Shim use several pieces of technology. We work hard to stay up to date on the latest technology to better diagnose and treat your dental concerns. We use digital x-rays, panoramic CT scanners, intra-oral cameras, and DryShield to make your visits more comfortable.

What Are Digital X-Rays and Panoramic CT Scanners Used for?

Digital x-rays and panoramic CT scanners can be used for a variety of dental concerns. We may use them to look for:

  • Problems inside your teeth
  • Problems below the gum line
  • Tooth decay
  • Abscesses
  • Bone loss
  • Tumors

Why is Dental Technology Important?

Digital x-rays and panoramic CT scanners can be used for preventive and diagnostic dental care. We will take x-rays and scans every few years to ensure there are no issues that aren’t visible to the naked eye.

If you are experiencing a dental issue, we can take x-rays and scans for diagnostic purposes. Then, we can treat you with the proper procedure.

Are These Technologies Safe?

At our practice, keeping you safe is one of our top priorities. Digital x-rays and panoramic CT scanners are safer than traditional x-rays.

Though digital x-rays and panoramic CT scanners are safe, we still take many safety precautions to limit radiation exposure. We use lead apron shields to protect you. We also take x-rays and panoramic scans only when needed.

Other Technology

Intra-oral cameras

An intra-oral camera is a small hand-held device that is attached to a computer screen. With the help of this camera, we can show you minute details, such as decay or fracture, which may not be easily visible. The images are enlarged and displayed on a screen. The high-definition camera will help you visualize your teeth in real-time! It is a painless and simple method to better understand your oral health.

If you have ever been to the dentist, you are familiar with the uncomfortable feeling of keeping the mouth open for long periods of time. It can make your visit stressful and even cause pain in your jaw joints. At So Good Dental, we offer an innovative device called DryShield. The DryShield device consists of a saliva ejector, tongue shield, and a bite block. The bite block is extremely comfortable and will keep your mouth open without putting strain on your facial muscles or jaw joint. It also ensures you do not swallow any debris or chemicals from the dental procedures. The DryShield device will make long procedures more comfortable and stress-free.

Our dentists near you would be happy to give you an examination, cleaning, and the appropriate x-rays or scan. We are committed to working with you to help you improve your smile. Contact So Good Dental today!
