Our practice uses high power loops or microscopes to enhance the precision of patient care.
Dentistry is the practice of micro-surgery. Using loops or microscopes that are similar to the ones an ophthalmologist uses, enables us to create dental restorations with incredibly precise fit and finish. You just can’t fulfill that level of care with the naked eye.
In addition to allowing precise, close-up work, loops direct a beam of light directly on the teeth, minimizing glare for you.
Drs. Raulerson, Chiaramonte & Alonso choose 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 nerve spaces 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. Drs. Raulerson, Chiaramonte & Alonso utilize 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 retrieve valuable diagnostic information. We are simply able to diagnose cavities more accurately.
Digital imaging allows us to store patient images and to quickly and easily transfer them to specialists or insurance companies.

Many patients, especially younger patients, are very familiar with the latest technology and are comfortable with the high tech practice. Computers and TV screens are their primary method of information processing.
Drs. Raulerson, Chiaramonte & Alonso utilize Intraoral Camera technology that helps enhance your understanding of your diagnosis. An Intraoral Camera is a very small camera – in some cases, just a few millimeters long. An Intraoral Camera allows our practice to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums, in order for us to accurately make a diagnosis. With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. This can mean faster diagnosis with less chair-time for you! Intraoral cameras also enable our practice to save your images in our office computer to provide a permanent record of treatment. These images can be printed for you, other specialists, and your lab or insurance companies.
