Dr. Lehmann is selective about which radiographs are taken and when. There are numerous rules that we adhere to. Radiographs enable us to make a thorough diagnosis of the tooth disease and are crucial to achieving the best possible treatment outcomes. We can use radiographs to assess the health of your bone, measure bone level, and find cavities between your teeth. Additionally, we can check the roots and nerves of teeth, identify abnormalities like cysts or tumors, and evaluate injury after trauma.
Dental radiographs are essential tools for identifying dental problems, correcting them, and preserving dental health. Dental radiographs have very little exposure time. Digital imaging technologies are used in the office by Dr. Lehmann. Comparing digital imaging to conventional radiographs, the exposure time is roughly reduced by 50%. We can also get useful diagnostic data from digital imaging. We might have a better view of cavities.
We can store patient images using digital imaging, and we can quickly and conveniently send them to insurance companies or specialists.
Many patients, especially those who are younger, are highly accustomed to modern technology and feel at ease in the high-tech office. Their main tools for processing information are computers and televisions.
Intraoral camera technology is used by Dr. Lehmann to improve your comprehension of your diagnosis. The length of an intraoral camera might be as little as a few millimeters. Our office can observe precise photos of your mouth, teeth, and gums using an intraoral camera, which enables us to diagnose you correctly. You can see features that could be missed by normal mirror inspections when the images are clear, distinct, and magnified. You could benefit from a quicker diagnosis and less downtime in the chair!
With the aid of intraoral cameras, our practice is also able to permanently record treatments by saving your photographs on our office computer. For you, other specialists, your lab, or insurance companies, these photos can be reproduced.

Dental Anxiety and Phobia
FEAR OF DENTAL WORK?
Up to 75% of Americans have some level of dental phobia, and 20% choose not to get their teeth cleaned as a result. We want you to know that our top goal is making you feel safe and at ease while visiting our office. Dental phobias and anxieties can manifest in many different ways, and each person has different fears. Dental anxiety can range from minor to serious, and it frequently manifests as a generalized feeling of fear and dread when anticipating a forthcoming surgery.
