- Next-Level Diagnostics
Simply getting a good look at every part of a patient’s mouth has always been a challenge in dentistry, but thankfully, our intraoral camera is an easy solution. This small, handheld device allows us to take pictures of your teeth, gums, and parts of your oral cavity that are virtually impossible to see with the naked eye. We can display these images on a nearby monitor, allowing our team to quickly spot any potential decay or damage. We can even go over your images with you right after capturing them so you and your dentist are always on the same page.
X-rays allow us to look at the roots of the teeth and bone that is hidden beneath the gum line, which enables us to catch any hidden cavities, infections, or early signs of oral cancer before they cause real trouble. Because our X-rays are 100% digital, they only take seconds to develop, and the images are much, much sharper compared to traditional film. Better yet, the entire process emits 90% LESS radiation as well, which is great news for patients, parents, and our team!
3D Cone Beam Imaging
Certain advanced procedures (such as dental implant placement) require extremely precise treatment planning, so in these instances, we like to use our cone beam scanner. This allows us to create a highly detailed, three-dimensional image of all of a patient’s teeth as well as their jaws. It even reveals the location of sensitive facial nerves so we can avoid them during treatment. With this instrument, a procedure’s success is guaranteed before we ever begin.
Soft Tissue Laser Dentistry
Rather than relying on incisions and sutures to treat patients with gum disease (which is the traditional way), we can take care of the problem non-invasively with a soft tissue laser. A concentrated beam of light quickly vaporizes harmful bacteria below the gum line while also painlessly removing infected tissue. The laser cauterizes nerve endings as it goes, so the patient feels practically nothing while in the chair, and the recovery time is basically non-existent as well.
