Dental Technology

As a dental office committed to treating patients like family, La Jolla Dental Image Family and Cosmetic Dentistry invests in the latest technologies to ensure the most efficient, comfortable, and comprehensive treatments possible. At our La Jolla, CA dentist office, we use:

  • Digital x-rays
  • IntraOral Cameras
  • Oral Cancer Screenings

We also offer some of the most advanced care that relies on the doctor’s high level of skill and training. Though fully committed to ongoing training and education, Dr. Hamidy has more than ten years of experience as a general, cosmetic, preventative, and restorative dentist.

Though technology is never a substitute for knowledge and skill, Dr. Hamidy and his team put advanced machinery to use in order to ensure that their patients enjoy the healthiest teeth and gums for their lifetime.

Digital X-Rays

Anyone who has ever had a dental x-ray may know that it can be a painful and uncomfortable experience. The sensitivity of the equipment may make it necessary for a patient to undergo many x-rays to get the most accurate images. That is why Dr. Wali Hamidy is happy to overcome this source of patient discomfort and complaint through the use of digital x-rays.

Fast becoming the preferred method for the accuracy it offers, it is also preferred by the doctor because of the comfort and convenience it provides his patients. Dedicated to treating them like family, the use of digital x-rays ensures the best and safest experience possible for all of Dr. Hamidy’s patients.

Exposing patients to approximately 80% less radiation than old-fashioned x-ray methods and providing an incredibly accurate set of images, the digital method also allows Dr. Hamidy to use the x-rays in various imaging programs. That might mean for cosmetic, restorative, or even preventative procedures.

Always making the patient the priority, Dr. Hamidy and his team trust digital x-rays for the most accurate and effective results.

IntraOral Cameras

Though digital x-rays offer Dr. Wali Hamidy a much more accurate view of a patient’s oral health, they do not give the complete picture. That is why he relies on “intraoral” cameras to ensure optimal diagnostic results. Rather than asking patients to open ever wider and missing symptoms or indicators of specific dental issues, the intraoral camera captures the entire mouth and broadcasts it to a monitor. This allows the doctor to do what he loves best – explain and share with the patient the details of their condition and help them understand the best treatments available. In addition to providing an effective diagnostic tool, the cameras also help with insurance acceptance issues.

Oral Cancer Screening

At La Jolla Dental Image, our dentist, Dr. Wali Hamidy and his team are thoroughly dedicated to providing patients with the healthiest teeth and gums over the course of their entire lifetime. That means regular cleanings and exams, preventative and restorative dentistry, and even cosmetic treatments. However, one key factor in the ongoing care is oral cancer screening. To ensure the best results, Dr. Hamidy uses the latest oral cancer screening technology and includes a head and neck exam as part of the treatment.
