Where would we be without technology? It has improved our lives in so many areas, and you’ll be pleased to know that dentistry is no exception!
Dr. Jason Keledjian and our team are passionate about continuing education and staying on the leading-edge of dentistry. We’re proud of the technology we offer that improves your comfort, informs and educates you, and gets you out of the dental chair faster.
Please take a moment to browse through the technology we currently offer, then give us a call to schedule an appointment so we can show you the benefits in person.
Digital Dental X-Rays
Digital dental x-rays offer unsurpassed safety with minimal radiation exposure – up to 90 percent less than traditional x-rays. In addition, digital dental x-rays provide high-resolution imaging that is the gold standard for early diagnoses of dental conditions.
Dr. Keledjian can zoom in, adjust brightness and contrast, and compare x-rays from one visit to the next at the touch of a button, allowing for easy monitoring of changes in your oral health.
Intraoral Digital Scanner
Dental impressions play an essential role when designing restorations like crowns and bridges, and more. The drawback is that the process involves using a metal tray filled with impression material and having you bite down on it until it sets. For some people—especially those with a strong gag reflex—this can be tough to sit through.
At Keledjian Dental, we’ve found a more comfortable way that eliminates the need for this step by using a state-of-the-art digital intraoral scanner. This technology eliminates the need for putty impressions in many cases and provides us with a precise representation of your teeth.
As Dr. Keledjian passes the handheld scanner over your teeth, we can view the images together on your chairside monitor. The scanner collects points of information to produce a digital map that our dentist uses to create a 3-D image of your teeth. Digital impressions are comfortable, get you out of the chair faster, and are an invaluable tool for customizing dental crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays, and onlays to your unique specifications.
Digital Panoramic X-Ray
Unlike individual dental x-rays used to diagnose conditions such as decay, panoramic x-rays give us the big picture of your tooth and bone health. They capture your entire mouth, jawbone, and teeth simultaneously. We can use panoramic x-rays to monitor wisdom teeth growth, bone density, and observe sinuses for implant placement. Panoramic x-rays are also helpful in diagnosing cysts, tumors, and periodontal disease.
Like digital dental x-rays, digital panoramic x-rays require significantly reduced radiation and unsurpassed high-resolution images.

The cephalometric x-ray is a full head x-ray, taken from the side that provides a comprehensive view of your bite, jaw, and tooth location. Ceph x-rays are useful in locating the sinuses, injuries to the teeth and jawbone, analysis for orthodontics, and malocclusion (bad bite).
When treating TMJ or planning orthodontic treatment, digital ceph x-rays allow more detailed analysis and accurate treatment planning. Like digital dental x-rays and panoramic x-rays, we use digital technology.

Do you remember the last time you had a dental exam and wondered what your dentist was talking about as they examined your mouth? You might have even felt frustrated by your lack of involvement with the process.
With digital intraoral cameras at Keledjian Dental, you are always a part of the diagnostic and decision-making process from the moment your appointment starts. During your exam, Dr. Keledjian passes the small handheld camera over your teeth, and as he does, you'll see the real-time images appear on your chairside monitor.
Seeing is believing with our digital intraoral camera because Dr. Keledjian can show you exactly what he sees. Decay, cracked teeth, tartar buildup, signs of periodontal disease, abnormal wear, and suspicious lesions can all be captured with our tiny intraoral camera.
Having additional, high-resolution, targeted photographs can assist in explaining your conditions, treatment planning, and for submitting additional information for insurance claims.
Non-Mercury Tooth-Colored Fillings
Every dental procedure that Dr. Keledjian performs is done with an eye for aesthetics. Even dental fillings provide us an opportunity to improve your oral health and enhance the appearance of your teeth. At Keledjian Dental, we offer only aesthetic, tooth-colored fillings because we can create beautiful, seamless repairs and leave a tooth looking and feeling better than when we found it. We don't use silver mercury fillings because they require us to remove a significant amount of healthy tooth structure to be effective, and the dark material also casts a shadow over your smile.
By matching fillings to your natural tooth color, we can provide you with a beautifully restored tooth and a repair that no one will ever notice.
