Dental Technology

We are pleased to use state-of-the-art dental technology here at Rockville Dental when providing your care. These technologies make it possible for Dr. Mina Jassam and Dr. Fabiana Steren Offit to provide you with faster and more accurate diagnoses, more precise treatments and a higher quality of care.

Digital X-Rays

In the past, most dental professionals had to use the traditional x-ray systems, which require film development. These days, we use digital x-rays due to their many benefits. A digital x-ray is safer and much quicker than its film predecessor. If the image comes out blurry, we can instantly retake a new one. Digital x-rays are a crucial diagnostic tool that helps us gain a better understanding of the inner workings of your mouth, more specifically the teeth, roots, and alveolar bone.

Intraoral Camera

An intraoral camera is a handheld appliance that is shaped like a wand. The tiny camera at the tip of the appliance takes hundreds of pictures per second to capture an in-depth and accurate image of your mouth. These small cameras can easily reach all areas of your mouth, allowing Dr. Mina Jassam and Dr. Fabiana Steren Offit to view places that would otherwise be impossible to see. This image is sometimes used to create a digital impression of your teeth and gums. A digital impression is particularly useful for same-day dental crowns.

TRIOS Digital Scanner

Dr. Mina Jassam and Dr. Fabiana Steren Offit use the advanced TRIOS® digital scanner to examine your mouth and capture detailed 3D images of your oral structures. These images are used in creating impressions, designing your restorations and ensuring that your treatments meet your exact needs.

Digital impressions have some advantages over traditional ones. Traditional impressions involve a material that is often messy, inconvenient, and uncomfortable. When taking digital impressions, an intraoral camera takes hundreds of pictures of your mouth, all while you watch on a chairside monitor. Our software then pieces together these images to create a highly accurate, three-dimensional representation of your teeth and gums. The entire process takes anywhere from 45 seconds to a minute and a half!
