Facilities and Equipment

Dr. Beadnell and her staff utilize the latest in technology to enhance the quality and fit for your dental care.

Digital X-Rays

Digital imaging enables us to see beyond what can generally be detected during a visual exam, allowing us to identify cavities in between your teeth, determine bone level, and analyze the health of your bone. Hillsdale Dentist Dr. Beadnell can also examine the roots and nerves of teeth, diagnose lesions such as cysts or tumors, and assess damage when trauma occurs.

Timing of x-rays is tailored specifically to each patient’s needs. With digital imaging, exposure time is about 50% less when compared to traditional methods. Digital imaging also provides patient images that can be quickly and easily transferred to specialists or insurance companies.

Intraoral Camera

Dr. Beadnell utilizes intraoral camera technology to enhance your understanding of your dental needs. An intraoral camera is a very small camera – in some cases, just a few millimeters long – that enables clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums for a more accurate diagnosis.

With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. Intraoral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatments. These images can be printed for you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.

DEXIS Platinum Sensor

At Beadnell Family Dentistry, we remain committed to providing our patients with the latest, most advanced dental care available. Dr. Beadnell’s commitment to using state-of-the-art technology in our SW Portland family dental office continues with the addition of the DEXIS Platinum Sensor. This revolutionary new device will provide Dr. Beadnell with unparalleled digital quality images of our patient’s teeth and gums. The ability to see even the smallest details will enable Dr. Beadnell to provide her patients with the most complete diagnoses of the exact state of the current oral health as possible.

Using this information, Dr. Beadnell will be better able to clearly present our patients with the information needed to make an informed decision about their treatment options. The improved image quality provided by the DEXIS Platinum Sensor also means fewer patient x-rays, which reduces even more the radiation levels patients are exposed to during any scan.
