Digital Radiography

Digital x-rays are the newest technology used in dentistry to take and archive dental x-rays. Digital x-rays significantly reduce the amount of radiation as compared to traditional dental x-rays.This technique captures a digital picture of teeth with their supporting bone structures and stores the images on a computer in our Des Plaines Dental Office. You and Dr. Mollsen will be able to instantly view your x-rays and enlarge the image to aid in the identification of dental problems and to gauge your dental health. Dr. Mollsen will use this information to create an individualized treatment plan.

Perioscopy in Des Plaines

In keeping with their commitment to stay on the forefront of medical and technological innovations and provide the highest quality of care, Dr. Mollsen & Associates LTD have received special training in the use of Perioscopy.

Perioscopy is a new procedure using a miniature dental endoscope with advanced video, lighting, and magnification technology that enables Dr. Mollsen & Associates LTD to diagnose and treat areas below the gumline non-surgically. The miniature camera is attached to a tiny probe and gently placed below the gumline. The images are immediately displayed on a screen for Dr. Mollsen, his team, and the patient to view. Because the endoscope provides up to 48 times magnification, it is able to disclose minute details that might have been missed before this technology.

Traditionally, the only other treatment option for these patients was a more aggressive surgical procedure. For some patients, Dr. Mollsen & Associates LTD can help their patients avoid periodontal surgery in a minimally-invasive way! Dr. Mollsen & Associates LTD will help you decide which treatment plan option works best for you.

Dr. Mollsen & Associates LTD are pleased to be able to provide you with this state-of-the-art treatment alternative and would be happy to discuss any questions you may have.
