Once entrusted to our care, you will be pampered with all the advantages of modern dentistry. All you have to do to make it happen is schedule your next appointment when you are done reading about all that we have to offer…
Digital X-rays And Less Radiation Are The New Norm
Some dentists still rely on 19th century technology, but that is not the case at our forward-looking office. Instead of using film to document images of your teeth and gums, we make use of a modern digital X-ray machine. It has a special sensor that gets placed in your mouth and sends the image to our computer, where it can be stored and viewed easily and readily.
You’ll be particularly pleased to know that digital X-rays produce 90% less radiation than old-school X-rays. How nice is that?
VELscope Cancer Detection System
Oral cancer can take your life if it is not detected early enough. Many folks in this country die from this disease every year. Even so, it is a very curable condition when it is detected and treated right away. Sadly, the truth is, it often goes unnoticed.
However, that doesn’t have to be your fate. We are always on the lookout for emerging issues or causes for concern. For our purposes, we employ one of the most advanced oral cancer screening systems in the business: VELscope. VELscope is a great new device that features a special light that illuminates any dangerous growths and tissues that probably would have been missed in previous eras by the ordinary scanners we had to work with.
Nowadays, the results are available immediately, and we can discuss them with you before you leave our office so that no valuable time is wasted.
Laser-Guided Cavity Detection
Did you know that many cavities will not be seen through visual examination or even on X-rays. This will mean trouble for you because these small cavities can grow without showing symptoms, until it’s too late for an easy solution. Large fillings, root canals, and extractions may be required if it is allowed to run wild in your mouth.
The good news is that, at this practice, we utilize DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection system to identify problems faster, so they can be addressed and repaired without significant damage to your tooth. You’ll thank us for all the money and pain that we saved you!
Air Abrasion Has Replaced The Dreaded Dental Drill
Are you afraid of the smells, sounds, and sensations of the dental drill? Join the crowd! That’s why, instead of drills, we now use air abrasion technology to scrape away decay.
This handheld device aims air and a stream of particles at the affected surface to painlessly blast away decayed areas. Anesthetic may not even be necessary with this soft tool.
