Read on to hear about what makes us different than other area dentists, and then make plans to come see for yourself!
Our VELscope Cancer Detection Process Can Save Your Life!
Did you know that oral cancer is a real killer if it is not caught and treated early enough? The fact that so many people die from this treatable disease year after year is particularly sad.
Lucky for you, with us on your side, that doesn’t have to be your fate. Whenever you come in for a checkup you can trust that we are diligently poking around for any emerging causes for concern such as cancer.
Around here, we have one of the most advanced oral cancer screening systems ever designed: VELscope. VELscope is equipped with a special light that illuminates any dangerous growths and tissues that probably would have been missed in the old days by the ordinary scanners we had at our disposal. You won’t have to waste any time waiting around for results.
Laser-Based Cavity Detection
Visual examinations and X-rays don’t always catch cavities. This will mean problems for you down the road because these small cavities can end up requiring large fillings, root canals, and possibly extractions if they aren’t addressed early enough.
That’s why we have stepped up our game. We now utilize the DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection system to identify decay faster, so that your teeth can be repaired without significant damage.
Other dentists may be happy and comfortable relying on their primitive technology, but that is not how we roll. As you may have guessed by now, we are known for being slightly ahead of the curve on most things.
Another case in point is that rather than using old school film to capture 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.
Just so you know, the real benefit to you is that digital X-rays produce 90% less radiation, so you won’t be glowing when you leave our chair!
Air Abrasion Vs. Dental Drill (Air Abrasion Wins)
Do you find the smells, sounds, and sensations of the dental drill to be off-putting or downright scary? You are not alone. That’s why, rather than drills, we now make use of air abrasion technology to scrape away any decay.
This handheld device aims air and a stream of particles at the affected surface to painlessly blast away decayed zones.
You Make The Call! (Seriously, Call us now!)
