Our Technology

Welcome to Manchester Family Dental, where advanced technology meets compassionate care. Our dental practice is equipped with the latest dental technology, ensuring every treatment is as efficient, effective, and comfortable as possible.

Digital Radiography

Digital radiography utilizes computer technology and digital sensors to acquire, view, store, and share radiographic images. It offers several advantages over the older, traditional film-based methods of taking x-rays. The most significant of these advantages is that digital radiography reduces a patient’s exposure to radiation. Other benefits are that images can be viewed instantly after being taken, can be seen simultaneously as needed by multiple practitioners, and can be easily shared with other offices. Digital x-rays are also safer for the environment, as they do not require any chemicals or paper to develop.

An electronic pad, known as a sensor, is used instead of film to acquire a digital image. After the image is taken, it goes directly into the patient’s file on the computer. Once it is stored on the computer, it can be easily viewed on a screen, shared, or printed out.

Digital Impressions

By using intraoral optical scanning devices, the need for patients to have a messy conventional dental impression taken of their teeth is eliminated. Digital impressions enable the dentist to more efficiently and effectively obtain an accurate computer-generated representation of their patient’s teeth along with the surrounding tissues. In addition to being much more comfortable for the patient, a digital impression eliminates the need for the dentist to either create a stone model from the impression or mail the impression directly to the laboratory for any type of work to be done. Digital impression information is transmitted electronically, significantly reducing the turnaround time of any needed outside laboratory work. Digital impressions are also integral to systems that produce same-day, in-office ceramic restorations.


Cone-beam computed tomography systems are radiographic systems used by dental professionals to analyze and reconstruct 3D images of a patient’s teeth, jaws, and surrounding anatomy. The information obtained through CBCT imaging is helpful in diagnosis and precise treatment planning when two-dimensional diagnostic films are insufficient. 

Dental CBCT is appropriate for multiple types of analyses, as well as the assessment of maxillofacial disorders or pathology. It is also a valuable tool in surgical planning, including the accurate placement of dental implants.
