Technology

At Hilldale Dental, you have access to the most advanced technology that gives you amazing results faster and gentler than ever before. Our entire team attends rigorous continuing education to become highly skilled with these technologies, which allow us to offer you more treatment options. Many of these technologies also allow us to show you your own teeth and gums, educating you and helping you make the best decision for your care. We are even able to reduce our use of resources like paper through some of these tools.

Digital Photography

Digital photographs give our team an instant and accurate image to keep on file. These images can be used as an aid to show you details about your care, or as references for Dr. Jaeger.

Digital Radiographs

Digital radiographs (x-rays) benefit you in several ways. First, they expose you to less radiation than traditional x-rays (which already have very low radiation levels). Second, digital radiographs can be saved on computers and require no development time. They can be shown to you on a monitor during your visit to help you learn about your specific dental health. Finally, digital radiographs use no film, paper or developing chemicals, making them better for the environment. 

Intraoral Camera

With an intraoral camera, Dr. Jaeger can show you exactly what he sees in your mouth to help you understand both your present condition and your treatment options. Keeping you educated about your dental care is a high priority at Hilldale Dental.

Caesy Education System

The Caesy Education System uses images, illustrations and video to show you a variety of dental conditions and treatments. Dr. Jaeger uses this system to help you understand dental issues that may be affecting you as well as the progress that can be made through treatment. This information not only helps you understand your treatment options, it also helps you to feel more comfortable with your overall care.

DIAGNOdent®

The DIAGNOdent® is an advanced diagnostic tool that allows Dr. Jaeger to identify cavities that are so early in development, they would be difficult or even impossible to detect with the naked eye. As always, early detection of dental issues allows for the best possible prognosis.

Electronic Records

Electronic records are a more efficient and more environmentally friendly form of keeping your dental file. Everything from your written record to your digital radiographs and photos are stored securely, and allow for easy and fast access whenever our team needs them for review. We are also able to communicate more efficiently with your insurance provider or any other doctors or specialists who might need to view your information in the future.

Soft Tissue Laser

Soft tissue lasers allow for gentle sculpting and shaping of the soft tissues of your mouth, such as your gum tissue. In fact, these lasers are so gentle that sometimes anesthesia is unnecessary.
