What Are Those Things In The Dentist's Office

Posted on 7/18/2022 by Beautiful Smiles Office
What Are Those Things In The Dentist's OfficeHave you ever wondered how dentists clean and check your teeth? You are not by yourself! Let us look at the most common dental tools and their functions.

Mouth Mirror

A small, circular mirror with a long handle is the mouth mirror. Your dentist uses it to examine confined spaces in your mouth, paying particular attention to tartar buildup.

Saliva Ejector

What is that tiny suction that collects your spit during treatment? That is the saliva ejector, which helps the dentist work more efficiently by drying your mouth.


Your hygienist uses scalers to scrape plaque and tartar off your teeth. While it may be unpleasant, you may immediately notice the difference between not having your teeth scaled and mounted!


Got a cavity? You will probably spend time with the drill, eliminating decay and preparing the tooth for a filling.


Your dentist uses a probe to inspect your gums and look for signs of gum disease.

Intraoral Camera

Do you want to know what your dentist is examining? We employ intraoral cameras so that our patients can view what the dentist sees and does.


The Isolite patient comfort system is another high-tech innovation that we are happy to employ. It keeps your mouth open and the light on so the dentist can see their work and absorb fluids!

X-Ray Scanner

If you are a new patient or have not had X-rays in a while, your dentist will order new ones. We utilize digital X-rays because they release less radiation and are faster.

Do not be scared of the many instruments your dentist uses the next time you go. We exclusively use the latest cutting-edge technology to provide our patients with a more efficient and accurate appointment. Contact us right away to experience the difference!
