We frequently update our office so we can continue to offer our patients the most efficient, safe, and pain-free care possible. When you come to see us, you can trust that you’re always getting the very best that dentistry has to offer. To learn more about some of the great tools we use every day, simply read on below.
This small, camera-tipped wand can be comfortably maneuvered through the mouth to take high-resolution images of the teeth and gums that can be instantly displayed on a large chairside monitor. These images will make it much easier for our team to catch subtle dental problems, and they also help our patients have a much more thorough understanding of their dental health. With them, we can show you firsthand why we might recommend a certain treatment as well as reveal the effectiveness of your home routine.
Digital x-rays are an improvement over traditional film-based ones in just about every way imaginable. They take much less time to develop images, they don’t require toxic darkroom chemicals to do so, and even better, they also expose our patients to 90% LESS radiation. With them, we can quickly diagnose potentially hidden dental problems while keeping our patients safe and giving them peace of mind. They just require you to hold a small sensor in your mouth for a few seconds, and that’s it!
This wonderful device actually enables us to create a fully digital 3D image of your teeth, jaw, and other surrounding structures in order to diagnose hard to find dental issues and better plan dental implant placement surgery. With this level of detail, we’re able to not only see the bone, but also the surrounding nerve structure as well. That means we can ensure your procedures are both less invasive and uncomfortable, as well as guarantee a successful treatment and an easy recovery.
Using the Waterlase Dental Laser, we’re able to perform a number of helpful dental treatments even faster while keeping our patients comfortable. It utilizes an extremely concentrated beam of light and a steady jet of water, and it can be used to clean the teeth, shape them for dental crowns, and even remove decay without the use of a dental drill. It is especially useful in the treatment of gum disease, as it can instantly eliminate harmful bacteria as well as painlessly remove infected tissue while reducing the chances of bleeding and post treatment soreness.
