Visiting the dentist can be a stressful experience. However, at Sycamore Family Dentistry, advanced digital technology has helped make dental visits smoother and more pleasant for everyone. Advanced digital technology offers a wide range of benefits that help optimize the oral health of our Midlothian, VA patients. Some of these advantages include the following:

  • Enhanced patient comfort throughout procedures
  • Customized treatment plans
  • Quicker treatment times
  • More precise diagnosis of dental health concerns
  • Improved accuracy in dental procedures

Our intraoral camera is a handheld wand that takes high-definition images of the inside of your mouth, which can then be transferred onto to a computer screen and kept for your dental records. Capturing these images with the intraoral camera can help you understand more about your oral health by giving you a clear look of any dental issues you may have, such as cracked teeth, tooth decay, or plaque buildup. Digital x-rays are generally taken during dental exams, produce 90% less radiation than traditional films, and provide a detailed view of your mouth so that we can detect possible underlying conditions, like dental cavities or bone loss.

My wife and I have been coming to Sycamore for many, many years. They all have been very professional, caring, and just good people. Our experience with them has always been exceptional. If you need a dentist, this is the place.
