How Dental Technology Makes Our Dentistry Better
- Crystal Clear Images for Accurate Diagnoses
- Advanced Cavity Detection Techniques
- Lasers for More Comfortable, Efficient Treatments
You should be able to play an active role in your own dental care, but in order to do that it’s essential that you understand exactly what is happening to your teeth and gums. We can show you exactly what we’re seeing with a wand-like intraoral camera that has been connected to a monitor that will display highly detailed images right before your eyes. This way, you can see the damage for yourself and ask any questions that you feel are necessary.
Taking X-rays of your mouth to check for unseen oral health issues is nothing new, of course. That said, the newest digital X-ray system has been invested in. The images are much clearer (which is absolutely essential when it comes to looking for signs of decay), and they can be produced in less time than traditional x-rays without the use of environmentally damaging chemicals. These digital x-rays produce much lower radiation than older types of x-rays so they are much safer.
Soft Tissue Laser
If traditional dental treatments performed with metal tools make you nervous, you’ll be happy to learn that some of these procedures can be completed with a soft tissue laser instead. Lasers are very precise, and they can cauterize any blood vessels they expose. As a result, soft-tissue laser treatments cause very little pain and can dramatically reduce healing time. We may use a laser during periodontal therapy, root canals, and other procedures meant to restore your overall oral health.
Cavity Detection System
With the DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection system, we can find and treat tooth decay as soon as it starts to develop. The way this advanced instrument works is actually very simple; we shine a special light over your teeth, and it reveals dark spots in the enamel that indicate areas where decay is occurring. Finding decay as early as possible makes it much easier to treat; in fact, it can help us eliminate the need for any drilling at all.
