Have you ever wondered what exactly your dentist is seeing as they peer into your mouth? With the help of a modern intraoral camera, it’s easier than ever for patients to get an up-close-and-personal look at their own oral health. The process is simple – one of our team members will navigate a camera-tipped wand around the teeth and gums, transmitting highly-detailed images to a monitor in the treatment room. These images can then be referred to by our dentists as they discuss their findings with you as well as potential services that could help remedy any damage or decay. Our goal is to help you feel like a full partner in the oral healthcare process!
X-rays may be taken during your first visit for one or several reasons. The goal of x-rays is to inform you and your dentist of the condition of your teeth, roots, gums, and jawbone. Some of the things that the X-rays will help identify are any possible bone loss, tooth decay or tumors. Being able to see and know the condition, shape, and position of your roots and teeth will also be helpful.
CEREC® Digital Impression System
Impressions are a vital part of the restorative process, whether we’re creating a single dental crown or a full bridge for tooth replacement. Traditionally, patients would have to sit still and try not to gag while the dental team covered their teeth with uncomfortable impression putty, but CEREC technology has helped revolutionize this process for the better! Now, creating a highly detailed model of the teeth only requires a few no-contact scans. This approach elevates accuracy as well, which means there will be no need for time-consuming retakes.
Soft Tissue Laser
Our soft tissue laser makes treatments involving the gums easier and more comfortable than ever before! The focused beam can treat and eliminate diseased tissue in a conservative fashion, minimizing post-operative symptoms like bleeding and swelling along the way. Most of our patients feel so at ease throughout the care process that they don’t even need local anesthesia. In addition to periodontal disease treatment, this type of laser can also be used for aesthetic gum recontouring.
Cavity Detection System
Our team is always striving to pinpoint and treat tooth decay in the earliest stages so that a patient’s natural smile can be as well-preserved as possible. With DIAGNOdent, this process is now much more precise and successful! The fluorescence technology measures changes in tooth structure and provides a detailed print-out that indicates where weakened enamel is present, even for hard-to-see areas of the mouth that may go unnoticed during a visual examination.
