Discover the ways you can benefit from the technology we use at our Archdale dental office below.
Our Triad Dental Technology
3D Cone Beam Radiography
The GALILEOS Comfort 3D Cone Beam Scanner is an advanced piece of dental technology that provides detailed images of the teeth and surrounding oral structures. In as little as 14 seconds, we’ll obtain clear and detailed images that can be used to create precise, customized treatment plans. Best of all, with such a quick scan time, patients won’t experience any discomfort.
VizLite Oral Cancer Screening
VizLite is an advanced screening system that assists our dentists in detecting oral cancer in its earliest stages before it’s sharply noticeable. This non-invasive screening can be completed in as little as five minutes. It’s effective, painless, and can save your life.
Digital Dental X-Rays
Digital X-rays are a quick and easy approach to identifying structures and accurately diagnosing oral health conditions. With digital X-rays, our dentists can obtain clear, detailed images of spots in your mouth we can’t see with the naked eye. Plus, our digital X-rays only emit a fraction of the radiation that traditional X-rays give off. This technology allows us to offer more effective treatment plans than just exams alone.
Laser Gum Disease Treatment (LANAP®)
Laser-assisted regeneration or LANAP®is an innovative dental laser that provides a less invasive, more accurate alternative to traditional surgeries. We use this technology for patients suffering from periodontal disease. It allows our dentists to treat gum disease in a short two-hour session without the need for cutting or sewing.
The CEREC system allows our Triad dentists to restore your smile with a seamless porcelain dental crown or other custom restorations. Patients no longer have to have messy impressions taken or wear temporary restorations as we can restore their smiles in just one day with CEREC technology. This technology allows us to create high-quality, natural-looking restorations that will transform your smile and improve your oral health.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits of dental technology?
With the advancements made in modern dentistry, there are a variety of benefits that come from our latest technology, including:
- Enhanced comfort
- Convenient and shorter visits
- Increased efficiency
- Accurate treatment plans
- Stronger, more reliable results

- Natural-looking restorations
How often do I need to get digital dental X-Rays?
We recommend getting digital dental X-rays taken at least once a year. Unless we need to take X-rays for a specific diagnosis or procedure, we limit most patients to new X-rays at every other routine visit. This helps keeps your exposure to radiation safe while still providing us with the detailed images of your teeth and surrounding oral structures we need to track potential areas of concern.
How are lasers used for dental treatment?
Laser dentistry is a fast and effective method used for many different dental procedures. At our Archdale office, we focus on laser dentistry for periodontal disease, giving patients a non-invasive treatment option. Lasers are a safe way to help our dentists remove extra gum tissue while minimizing bleeding and swelling, and killing off any harmful bacteria.
Are dental X-Rays safe?
Although dental X-rays use radiation, the exposure levels are very low, making them safe for all patients. Here at Triad Cosmetic Dentistry, we use digital dental X-rays instead of traditional which decreases the amount of radiation exposure. Your dental exams will be fast and comfortable in preparation for your treatment.
