Advanced Dentistry Technology
The greatest precision with an machine or technology is only as good as the doctor using it and prescribing it for their patients. The training, education and experience of the doctor must be as complete as possible. Dr Pechous is a specialist in the dental services he provides. Crowns, bridges, dentures, partial dentures and dental implants all require precision in the steps needed to produce them.
Precision needs training and education to provide patients with the best possible restoration for each tooth that needs dental work. Dr Pechous has the training and knowledge to try and provide his patients with the best treatment options. As an associate professor at Marquette School of Dentistry Dr Pechous continues teach learn and educate about the changing world of dental restorations and the field of dentistry.
Dr. Pechous chooses carefully which and when radiographs are taken. There are many guidelines that we follow. Radiographs allow us to see everything we cannot see with our own eyes. Radiographs enable us to detect cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. We can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, as well as assess damage when trauma occurs.
Dental radiographs are invaluable aids in diagnosing, treating, and maintaining dental health. Exposure time for dental radiographs is extremely minimal. Dr. Pechous utilizes Digital Imaging Technologies within the office. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50 percent less when compared to traditional radiographs. Digital imaging can also help us retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We may be able to see cavities better.
Digital imaging allows us to store patient images, and enables us to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.
Digital X-rays offer more precision since we view the image on a computer monitor, instead of holding up a 35mm film up to the light. Digital X-rays results in 1/6th the radiation exposure to you.
