Office & Technology
To keep our dental unit water lines (DUWL) free from bacteria and our patients safe, we use DentaPure cartridges and change them once a year as directed. This is the same technology that was developed for NASA to keep the water supply safe in space. It is also registered with the EPA.
Digital x-rays are the newest technology used in dentistry to take and archive dental x-rays. Digital x-rays significantly reduces the amount of radiation as compared to traditional dental x-rays.This technique captures a digital picture of teeth with their supporting bone structures and stores the images on a computer in our Naperville Dental Office. You and Dr. Murmann will be able to instantly view your x-rays and enlarge the image to aid in the identification of dental problems and to guage your dental health. Dr. Murmann will use this information to create an individualized treatment plan.
Taking pictures of the teeth and supporting tissue with a small video camera about the size of a pen is a wonderful addition to dentistry today. The intra-oral camera creates digital images that can be stored on a computer at Murmann Dental Health. The images are shared with our patients so they can join with us in the "co-diagnosis" of problems with their dental health. We can show you how others view your smile and which fillings are broken or discolored. We look forward to showing you a dental tour of your mouth in the privacy of your treatment room.

A panoramic radiograph is a panoramic scanning dental X-ray of the upper and lower jaw. It shows a two-dimensional view of a half-circle from ear to ear. Panoramic radiography is a form of tomography; thus, images of multiple planes are taken to make up the composite panoramic image, where the maxilla and mandible are in the focal trough and the structures that are superficial and deep to the trough are blurred.
DEXIS™ CariVu™ shines light between the teeth to illuminate the enamel. A cavity shows up as a dark spot.
