• Our Technology

  • Advanced Technology

    There are many technological advances that have drastically improved patient care in the field of dentistry.

    At Foothill Dental Group, we use:

    • Digital X-rays which results in 1/6th the radiation exposure as compared with non-digital x-rays
    • Laser dentistry is one of dentistry’s latest advances. The laser delivers energy in the form of light. Depending on the intended result, this energy travels at different wavelengths and is absorbed by a “target.” In dentistry, these targets can be enamel, decay, gum tissue, or whitening enhancers. Each one absorbs a different wavelength of light while reflecting others. Laser dentistry can be used for both tooth and soft tissue related procedures. Oftentimes no local anesthesia is required. Unlike with the dental drill, with laser dentistry there is no heat or vibration, making the procedure quite comfortable for most patients. For soft tissue procedures it eliminates the need for suturing and healing is much faster. Dental lasers have been shown to be safe and effective for treating both children and adults.

    Intraoral Cameras allow our doctors and hygienists to view clear, precise images of your mouth, teeth and gums. With clear, defined, enlarged images, you see details that may be missed by standard mirror examinations. We can 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.

    While technology is constantly changing, our commitment to providing you with the best service possible is not. We take pride in providing our patients with state of the art technology to better serve them. Foothill Dental Group strives to stay up to date on the newest technology available to enhance your comfort level and optimize your experience with us. Patients from all over Hayward, San Leandro, San Lorenzo, and surrounding communities have been trusting us for years to deliver top of the line service.
