Creature Comforts

The team at Yorkville Family Dental wants to make sure your dental experience is one you will remember. Our excellent customer service and creature comforts make for a relaxing and soothing dental experience!

Our Technology

Intra-oral Cameras

  • True-to-life images
  • Patient education
  • Reduces fear of unknown
  • Get involved in your dental health

At Yorkville Family Dental we want our patients to take charge of their dental health. Our intra-oral camera allows our patients to see the inside of their mouths with great clarity and detail. This allows a better understanding of diagnosis and treatment.

Digital X-Rays

At Yorkville Family Dental we use a state-of-the-art digital x-ray system. These digital x-rays offer the following benefits:

Safer: The sensitive computer sensor uses a much lower amount of radiation than more traditional x-ray machines. In fact, it uses 90% less radiation than conventional x-rays. Better: The digital sensor sees details conventional film misses and the image can be magnified 300x its normal size. Contrast can be adjusted to reveal details normal film might not detect. Faster: Because there is no development cycle, images are available to Dr. Laguatan within seconds of being taken! Smarter: The digital system does not use hazardous chemicals to develop film and therefore avoids producing hazardous waste.

Digital Panorex Machine X-rays

X-rays taken with a Panorex x-ray digital machine differ from other digital x-rays because it takes a “panoramic” picture of your teeth. The machine moves through a half-circle motion that captures an image of your entire mouth. Like digital x-rays, digital panorex x-rays reduce the amount of radiation you are exposed to. Panorex images may not but necessary for you, Dr. Laguatan will determine whether or not a panorex image is needed for your best course of treatment.

Isolite

Dr. Laguatan reduces your time spent in the dental chair by 20-30% using the innovative Isolite Dryfield Illuminator System. This system uses a soft and flexible mouthpiece to comfortably open the mouth, retracting the cheek and providing a rest area for your jaw. The system also illuminates the interior of the mouth, allowing full visibility, access and moisture control. The isolite also offers continuous suction of debris and fluids, eliminating the use of cotton rolls and rubber dams. Dr. Laguatan and his staff put their patient’s comfort first. Offering the unique Isolite System to their patients, Dr. Laguatan invites you to come and experience the difference.
